Debbie Sallis

Executive Director, The Cyber Guild

I help leaders and their teams in corporations, small business and not-for-profit organizations across a range of sectors to define their strategy and turn it into action. I partner with them to embed a high-performance culture and create a positive leadership legacy. 

An engaged board member and executive coach with more than 15 years of global leadership experience, I founded Coaching Conversations in the belief that leaders who seek diverse inputs make better decisions, creating healthier organizations.

I serve as Executive Director of The Cyber Guild, a not-for-profit organization who activate leaders to increase diverse, nontraditional thinking and talent at all levels of cybersecurity. As a member of the board of The Washington Centre, a leader in the provision of internships and academic seminars, I serve on the executive committee and chair the strategic planning subcommittee. I am a board advisor for Evans and Chambers, a software development company, and previously served as a Global Ambassador for Vital Voices, which identifies, trains, and empowers emerging women leaders across the world. 

As a former global senior human resources leader at BAE Systems, one of the world’s largest aerospace and defense contractors, my contributions included creating an operating model and executive structure for a $11B division across four continents and launching the corporations global Inclusion Symposium. 

I am recognized for my business acumen, an inclusive style, and for building positive and effective working relationships across business and geographical boundaries. I partner with senior leaders to build sustainable organizations, cultivate their teams, and reimagine who they are as leaders. The result: solutions that enable growth and enhance sustainability.
