Outspoken saleswoman Debra Barr, was awarded 'mouth of the year' at her office Christmas party and confesses to being a bit 'tenacious'. Buckinghamshire-born Debra considers herself to be a direct and driven saleswoman with a passion for business and a love of horses. At the age of ten Debra had a reading age of a six-year-old but she won her struggle with literacy and went on to study English Literature at university. Inspired by Bill Gates and Richard Branson she is a go-getter who would rather ask for forgiveness than permission.

She says: "When I set my sights on something I have to make sure I get it. I am very cautious and only let the people that I can trust see the softer side of me."
