When I first launched Empowered PhXX, everyone said, ” You have to connect with Deborah Bateman”. I was honored when she was actually willing to meet with me! People where not kidding. Deborah provided me great insight and feedback. I am excited to share more about her story, her leadership and her ideas about the future. As my first guest that works in the private “corporate” sector, I asked her thoughts on the role that big business has in supporting the local community and the entrepreneurial ecosystem for women.

Deborah Bateman epitomizes achievement, determination and kindness, professionally and personally. Her career has seen her rise from teller to executive while never losing the grounded perspective and touch that makes her a valued friend and mentor. Committed to developing individuals around her and helping them reach personal and professional goals, Deborah speaks from the heart when relating her own life experiences to those who value her counsel.
“I encourage persons. I coach and mentor, to really dig deep and find out who they are,” Bateman says. “Not who your parents wanted you to be, not who your friends think you should be. But really and truly who you are. To have that target design of knowing ourselves and our purpose is absolutely paramount. Too many people – men and women – are a result of being who someone else has asked them to be.”
