Whether on the page or on the stage, Deborah Kimmett is one great story teller. This witty and wise woman has been using humour to open minds and heal hearts for over 30 years. A Second City veteran, a regular performer on CBC’s radio and television show “The Debaters” and a sought-after motivator on the speakers’ circuit, she engages her audiences with stories and killer humour that ignite, inspire and energize. In the training department she was co-architect of Second City’s Corporate Training Department. She designed the workshops there to help organizations improvise and say yes. She then took this knowledge and went off to create her own business Kimmett Inc. where she combines improv training to help companies learn how to think differently and say yes to new opportunities.
Clients that ask her back are: Microsoft, Proctor and Gamble, Re/Max Bell Canada, RBC, Health Canada, IBM, and countless health care organizations.
Deborah is an accomplished author of three books, “Outrunning Crazy”, Reality is Over-Rated”, and “That Which Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Funnier”. She was nominated twice for the National Magazine Award for Humour and as a well-known playwright was nominated for the Governor General Award for her play Miracle Mother. She has written five plays, 52 episodes for TV, a feature movie about female prison guards, and wrote and produced a compassionate health care video called “Walk a mile in My Backless Gown”.
Deb’s passion at the moment is mentoring the creative soul in folks with a signature online writing kit, The Seven Minute Writer.
