Deborah Lee
If ever you wanted an example of how social media can change your life then you should look no further than Deborah Lee.

After sixteen successful years working in business to business sales in central London, Deborah opted to become self-employed when she became a mother ten years ago. Quickly she discovered social media to be an effective tool that could be used to promote her business from her new home in rural Lincolnshire.

But it was really joining Twitter four years ago that made all the difference.

Today she is a highly sought-after coach and trainer due to her ability to succinctly demonstrate how the considerable power of social media can be harnessed and used to great advantage when used correctly.

In April 2013 she was named on Forbes Top 20 Women Social Media Influencers list, and two weeks later on Forbes Top 50 Global Social Media Influencers list.
