You have probably heard of the popular home-exchange platform Love Home Swap. Debbie Wosskow is perhaps best known for founding the website, which she sold for a mouth-watering $53 million in 2017. That alone makes her a serial entrepreneur in every sense of the description. She also co-founded one of the world's largest women's networks in the name of AllBright, which focuses on pioneering women's inclusion in Web3. Thanks to Wosskow's exceptional services to British Business, she deservedly earned an OBE, an elusive feat you could chase your entire life without getting.
Why you should book Debbie Wosskow for your next event
- Debbie is a charming speaker with a high sense of professionalism. She is regularly hailed for her highly informative, entertaining, and interactive presentations, and her English diction and stage performance are just superb.
- She is big on sharing her hand-on-experience of the socio-economic potential of collaborative consumption. She then gives practical recommendations on how to realize this potential.
- At the center of Debbie’s ethos is the power of female inclusion in fostering innovation. She is passionate about women empowerment through access to capital. This clearly comes to the fore when she is presenting.
It’s worth knowing that Debbie wears many other hats besides being a sought-after international speaker. For instance, she sits on London’s Business Advisory Board and serves as a senior advisor at McKinsey. Debbie’s expertise and business experience caught the UK government’s attention, which entrusted her with an advisory role on business matters.
In 2016, Debbie Wosskow discovered that women received only 2% of capital generated in the UK. Her other discoveries included fewer women in leadership positions (one in six positions) and the domination of men in the senior investment space. These realities prompted her into co-founding AllBright two years later. The platform helps female entrepreneurs to network and find capital. On top of running meetups and masterclasses (physical and digital), AllBright also plays host to pitch days, which make it possible for budding entrepreneurs to secure investors. It does this in collaboration with Goldman Sachs.
Wosskow co-authored ”Believe, Build, Become,” a must-read for those looking to supercharge their career. In terms of education, she holds an MA in Philosophy and Theology from New College, Oxford. As an authoritative speaker, she routinely talks about the challenges and business potential of various technologies, including the metaverse, NFTs, and Web3. But her keynotes go far beyond these technologies, covering other topics, including entrepreneurship and the sharing economy. Katie is now focused on building businesses in the health, wellness and diversity space and has connected LP’s with funds that invest in women and diversity.
