Theresa Destrebecq

Community-building and Community reflection, Guest Facilitator or Speaker

After spending over a decade in traditional education and education leadership, and another decade coaching individuals, Theresa Destrebecq now combines the two to create, lead, and facilitate book-centered learning communities.

Her company, Emerge Book Circles, focuses on supporting organizations and individual leaders to move beyond consuming ideas. Instead, she supports them to read deeper, build stronger connections with themselves and others, and then to create new ways of living, working, and leading.

When she isn’t holding space for generative conversations and learning, she may be sitting in her cave-like recording studio recording a podcast episode, or co-hosting a healing circle with Healing Circles Global.

You can also find her swallowed up in a good book (obviously), exploring the forest near her house, playing board games with her kids, in some awkward pose on her yoga mat, or behind the stove cooking something yummy. She loves to laugh until her stomach hurts, and prefers to be around people who can make her laugh that hard.
