Professional Coach Deborah Jackson Launches New Charlotte Company and Website

Deborah Jackson, an experienced coach, trainer and speaker for several of America’s leading medical device and pharmaceutical companies, has launched her own professional services company, Harobed, Inc. based in Charlotte, N.C. Harobed’s services include executive, business and life coaching, as well as customized speaking and training initiatives.

She has also commissioned Charlotte marketing firm Lawrimore Inc. to design a new website for her and her business, online at

“I have been a coach and trainer for most of my adult life,” Jackson said. “With the encouragement of many colleagues and friends, I have started my own coaching-training/consulting company so that I can help anyone or any group develop professionally or personally. We believe business lessons often parallel life lessons. Because we focus on internal and external characteristics, behaviors and competencies, our slogan is, ‘Building leaders from the inside out.'”

Jackson will be a guest on Klarque Garrison’s Internet radio program, at 7 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 20. Now in its third year, the program has over 100,000 listeners and has been nominated for a number of awards.

Demand for Jackson’s services is growing in the Charlotte area, including speaking and leadership training initiatives the weekend of June 9 and beyond with several chapter executive boards of Jack and Jill, a national organization providing social, cultural and educational opportunities for youth.

Jackson graduated from the University of New Orleans on a four-year tennis scholarship and played at the satellite level for a number of years before her corporate career. She has held business coaching, management and training positions at Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Company and Novo Nordisk in several Southeastern and Northeastern states.

“Deborah Jackson is the first name that comes to mind when I think of a highly trained and knowledgeable business and life coach,” said Doris Drew, Executive Customer Representative at a major pharmaceutical company. “In working with Deborah, I felt as though we were in a partnership for my success. She has the acute ability to identify areas of development quickly and is prompt in her assessments in order to quickly outline a relevant action plan. Deborah possesses a strong knowledge of business and a keen ability to teach, empowering me to meet and exceed both professional and personal goals.”
