Why She’s Great

As a journalist, Debra’s work has inspired new laws, reforms and audits. She has won over 40 journalism awards during her time as a reporter. That includes 17 first-place investigative and reporting awards. She delivered in-depth exposes on the substandard care for the mentally ill and medically frail children and exposed the abuse of foster care children and the disabled as the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Statehouse Bureau Chief.

Before getting Mindset Digital off the ground, she served as the director of Ohio State’s Kiplinger Program. There, she and her partner launched the first journalist’s social media fellowship- showcasing top-notch reporters from 60 Minutes, CNN, The Washington Post, and more. In addition to all this, she also found the time to teach graduate courses on the impact of digital media on public affairs at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.

We don’t know how someone as busy as Debra can find the time to share her invaluable insights with us, but we’re glad she has!

Keynote & Sessions

In “SOS: Write for Action” on April 16, 2019, at 1:00 pm, you’ll gain valuable insights that Debra has honed and developed over many years on how keeping your content “short, organized, and skimmable” will boost engagement and bring you faster responses, and more lasting engagement from your audience. She’ll explain the fine art of holding on to the elusive attention span of the average Internet user, and how to avoid distracting jargon- bringing it all home with powerful gamification and laser-sharp CTAs.

At her keynote speech on April 17, 2019, at 8:50 am, Debra will discuss the art of the mastering the average 8-second user attention window and getting engagement where it would otherwise be impossible. You’ll learn what it takes to grab them by the clickers and bust through all the distractions that stand between you and those golden conversion rates you’re looking for.
