Master the mindset, energy and skills methodology Diane has developed from decades of leading diverse teams in high-pressure situations to achieve success.

About. . .

Having spent 40+ years in business, Diane Demetre, the creator of Luminary Leadership and author of Master Mindset knows first-hand that leadership mastery lights the way for intrapersonal, interpersonal and collective success. But how can you create leaders who inspire, influence and ignite the spark in others? Diane knows the science and secrets to creating this type of leader; one who can super-charge your business, energise your people and elevate performance. 

Her diverse leadership background began as an educator before she blazed a trail into the entertainment industry in radio, television, and on the stage, directing casts and crews of large scale national and international productions.

A successful entrepreneur, she has owned 2 multi-award-winning businesses: an internationally acclaimed resort in Vanuatu and a quality accredited, Australian company with hundreds of staff across 4 states, both reaching multi-million-dollar success.

She is a regular contributor to the media, appearing in print, on podcasts and television, and has authored multiple books. Awarded an International Women’s Day Leadership Award in 2019, she is a powerhouse of educated insight, practical experience, and dynamic delivery. On or off the stage her passion and purpose light up the room, making her the ideal ‘Luminator’ to turn on your leaders.

“We all come into this world cable-ready. Our job as luminary leaders is to plug into our people and turn them on. To power them up until they blaze. That's what leadership is really about!”

Opening Keynote 

                                 Cut the Crap
                          You Can’t Lead Like That!

No matter what style of leader you are, there are probably days when you just want to scream. Days when you’re drowning under the pressure of leadership, deadlines, staffing difficulties and the list goes on. But you can’t lead like that.

In her keynote, Cut the Crap! You Can’t Lead Like That, Diane combines 40+ years leadership, mindset and business experience and expertise in her no-nonsense, sometimes light-hearted presentation as she demonstrates why, as leaders, we are often our own worst enemy, how to master any situation and more critically, ourselves. She cuts through the preconceived leadership styles to present a tool kit of bright ideas and practical takeaways that will:

  • Help your people shift their perspective to become more self-aware and self-inspiring.
  • Demonstrate the power of neuroscience ad how to rewire and fire their brains for success.
  • Show them how to employ the Feel Good Factor to improve their  psychological resilience, overcome anxiety and manage conflict.  
  • Teach your leaders how to elevate their energy and perform to their potential without body or brain drain.
  • Hone and harden their leadership skills using the 7 – P Principle and Leading Questions
  • Highlight the 24 essential ‘C-suite’ characteristics all leaders must possess to light the way to success.
Themes: Mindset Mastery, Energy Mastery, and Skills Mastery
