Debbie Travis


Are you on the cusp of change? Perhaps you are looking to pivot on the road to corporate advancement, launch an entrepreneurial dream or discover post-career purpose. If you're in the midst of transition, join us on December 11th for an extraordinary evening of insight with a master of reinvention - Debbie Travis.

With her innate talent for design coupled with her dry British wit, Debbie Travis is a household name and beloved television icon both here in Canada and around the world. Her career started in England as a fashion model and television producer before moving to Montreal at age 30 to marry a Canadian. The move was the catalyst for her first entrepreneurial endeavor – a painting and design business that subsequently became a market leader in the paint and finishing trend across North America.

Fast forward several years, and Debbie merged her two passions, design and television production, by producing one of North America’s first decorating shows, Debbie Travis’ Painted House. This ground breaking series was followed by several more internationally successful shows including Debbie Travis’ Facelift, From The Ground Up and All For One.

In 2016, Debbie decided it was time for the next chapter.

She invested her heart and soul into restoring a ruin in Tuscany and transformed it into a luxury boutique hotel where like-minded women can experience the Tuscan lifestyle at her Girls’ Getaways. Here, on her 100 acre farm she produces an organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a variety of lavender products. The massive restoration project was filmed and La Dolce Debbie was born, a documentary series that premiered on the OWN Network in 2016. Now she's telling her story and leveraging her experiences to help other women with the launch of her latest book, "Design Your Next Chapter: How to Realize Your Dreams & Reinvent Your Life".

Join us for an intimate evening and book signing as Debbie shares her key insights on why it's never too late to design your next chapter and realize your passion and purpose.

[woitab title=”Debbie Travis Biography”]

 

DEBBIE TRAVIS is an international television icon, a bestselling author, a newspaper columnist, a sought after public speaker and the centre of a small business empire. Her shows, Debbie Travis’ Painted House, Debbie Travis’ Facelift, From The Ground Up and All For One–and most recently the six-part documentary, La Dolce Debbie, about how she transformed a 13th-century Tuscan farmhouse into a hotel and retreat–have been seen in Canada, the United States and 80 other countries. She has authored nine previous books (eight on decorating); Oprah has called her “the master of paint and plaster.”Having stepped back from TV producing, she gets to relax, just a little, running a luxury boutique hotel where like-minded women can experience the Tuscan lifestyle at her Girls’ Getaways and a 100-acre farm where she produces an organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a variety of lavender products. Debbie shares her journey with her husband, Hans, and two sons, Josh and Max.
