Deborah Flood
Principal + Founder

Deborah worked with me on a number of different initiatives at the Gates Foundation. She was able to rapidly get up to speed on new and disparate subject areas and brought the required strategic coherence to complicated issues. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.
