Following the State of California’s passage of Proposition 10, the new "First 5" Early Childhood Cigarette Tax,[9][10] an effort lead by actor Rob Reiner, Bringelson was asked to lead the Children and Families First Commission[11] in developing the first ever Strategic Action Plan[12][13] for spending the new revenue for the benefit of the State’s prenatal to five year old. In March, 1999, Bringelson was honoured by the United States Congress and the California Senate and Assembly[14] in recognition of her tireless work on behalf of abused children, domestic violence survivors, animals and the environment. She was further recognized for bringing her energies and expertise to the issues of civil justice reform, child protection, toxic cleanup, as well as water and land use policies. Noting her significant contributions in the field of criminal and juvenile justice reform, reforming the system and creating inefficiencies of operation, speaking to Congress,[15] Congresswoman Anna Eshoo[16] honoured Deberah’s commitment to the issues of drug abuse and violence, which arose arise from her own personal experiences as an abuse and violence survivor.

She's been honored for overcoming the personal trauma and violence of her childhood and for bringing her talents, compassion and energy to our community.[19]

Strategic Business Development[edit]

In early, 2000, hearing of her successful turn-around accomplishments, San Francisco – Silicon Valley business leaders[21][22] reached out to Bringelson, seeking her help with the region’s exploding business growth and numerous problems;[23] primarily the severe shortage of employee housing,[24][25] freeways choked with traffic congestion, and the resulting environmental impact caused by rapid growth and minimal urban planning.[26]

Immediately discovering that both the issue[27] and region were rife with conflict;[28] environmentalists on one side, labor leaders on another, Silicon Valley businesses[29] on yet still another and political entities from 26 different government agencies all competing to protect their unique interests,[30][31] Bringelson embarked on a nine-month fact-finding and strategic planning effort[32] to understand the concerns of residents as well as all of the conflicting interested parties.[33] Nine months later, on May 18, 2001, more than 250 Labor, Environmental, Business, Transportation,[34][35] Political and Community Leaders came together to adopt a plan "Moving From Talk To Action".[36][37] The plan committed to preserving and protecting open space,[38] while creating sustainable, vibrant communities along the Caltrain[39][40] transit corridor.[41] Standing on the Oracle Headquarters'[42] stage in Redwood City, CA,[43] the Grande Dame of the San Francisco Peninsula environmental community, Lennie Roberts[44] spoke to the gathering saying that in her long history working to protect and save the Silicon Valley environment and sensitive ecosystem;[45] the strategic planning process that led to the Grand Boulevard initiative[46] was the first time she had ever been invited by the business community to participate in building a plan[47] that both protects the environment and invested in smart development.[48] She went to say that it was also the first time in her long career that leaders from both the business and environmental communities were together standing on the same stage, supporting a project.[49][50]

Several months later, the Grand Boulevard Initiative[51] was born.[52]

Virgin America[edit]

In September 2003 Bringelson began a 30-day effort to convince Sir Richard Branson to locate the headquarters[53][54] for his New Virgin America Airline at San Francisco International Airport in San Mateo County, CA.[55][56]

What was to be a 30-day project,[57] with a final decision by Branson in October, 2003, turned into a 9-month saga with Bringelson leading volunteer teams of transit officials, business leaders, and politicians[58] in a coordinated campaign to woo the airline.[59]

The effort concluded with a 3-day "Virgin Sees Red" extravaganza that along with hours of negotiation, included ballerinas, a contingent of actors and even school children. Finally, more than 50 of the region's Fortune 100 and 500[60] CEOs gathered at the home of Senator Jackie Speier[61] in a final pitch culminating in a performance by Beach Blanket Babylon.[62][63]

In May 2004, the decision was announced that Branson would locate the Virgin America Headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area.[64][65] It was later learned that before beginning the location search for the new headquarters,[66] Branson was firm in his decision that he would not locate in California due to the political turmoil and business climate.[67][68] The impressive turn-around of his decision, prompted the San Francisco Business Times[69] to Award Bringelson the "Steal of the Year" award for the deals that never should have happened.[70]

International Business[edit]

On the heels of her Virgin America win, Bringelson, a single mom looking for quieter surroundings in which to raise her daughter, abruptly left the Bay Area in 2006. After taking a few years off to recharge, she joined forces with Tony Robbins and Chet Holmes,.[71]

Re-entering the business world in 2008 and building on her experience in Silicon Valley,[72] Bringelson, a 30-year student of quantum theory and shamanism, combined that knowledge with her proven business strategies and success tools into her Power of 3 Formula. Using that formula, she quickly developed a reputation for being one of the most profit-producing Business Growth[73] and Empowerment Experts in the world, with clients regularly achieving results of 100% to more than 3,500 percent growth.
