A sample of what I partner with my clients to achieve:

For two years I served as the Organizational Development consultant to Autism Services through the GetSET Initiative. In that role, I conducted a comprehensive assessment of the organization, facilitated the creation of an agency-wide capacity building plan, facilitated the development of the agency value proposition and five departmental value propositions. I served as a coach and problem solving partner to the Executive Director and key staff.

For more than a decade I have worked with Parent Network of WNY to design trainings on their behalf to support individuals with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who work with them. These have included classroom trainings, online trainings, and the creation of videos. I also deliver training and facilitate processes on behalf of Parent Network. I have designed evaluation processes and designed and delivered team building.

I worked with Community Services for the Developmentally Disabled on several projects related to process improvement. I also led a region-wide discussion related to the changes in the Developmental Disabilities requirements on behalf of CSDD.

“I truly enjoy working with Mary Beth Debus. She is always professional, confident and has a good work ethic, but you would expect that of anyone who has their own business. What makes Mary Beth stand out from others is her attention to detail and a level of creativity that is unprecedented. This unique mix of skills enable her to be creative in any capacity whether she is developing curricula or facilitating an activity. She has an ability to connect learning elements in relevant, fun ways, but what makes her successful is how she targets her services around her audience. Mary Beth takes her time to learn who the audience is, how they learn, what they hope to learn or do and then designs around this. Her method always leads to a positive outcome. It’s always a pleasure to work with Mary Beth!”


— Michelle Archer, Former COO of Community Services for the Developmentally Disabled, Inc. and Program Developer for Parent Network of WNY

I led strategic planning sessions for the Asthma Coalition and YWCA of WNY and am currently working with Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (ECCPASA). I developed an extensive process for the P2 Collaborative to define priorities for their Population Health Improvement Program bringing together a large group of diverse community stakeholders.I continue to provide consulting for two of their population health initiatives. For Px21 I worked with them on the development of their Charter to better inform their future strategies and organizational efficiencies.

I delivered training to Erie Community College’s Leadership Academy Program and led a two day senior executive retreat. I have a year long contract with the City of Batavia facilitating departmental goal setting, designing and leading a leadership retreat. and providing one-on-one coaching to key staff.
