Why Diane?

Real-world Experience and Expertise​

Drawing from her 40+ years leadership experience which began as a trail blazer in education and entertainment, Diane brings real-world experience and expertise to help your leaders change the lens through which they see themselves and their world to effect radical transformation.

A successful entrepreneur, she has owned two multi-million-dollar businesses—an internationally acclaimed resort in Vanuatu and a quality accredited, Australian company with hundreds of staff across four states.

She understands the challenges leaders face—the fear-based fixed mindset that clouds decision making, the heightened levels of stress that produce overwhelm, and the severe periods of self-doubt and imposter syndrome, especially caustic to your people in today’s great leadership reset.


“Seldom does one find a speaker whose address combines so many elements and such a range of good practical sense. The dynamics of your presentation were wonderful and made those present really sit up and listen.”

Les Elbourne, Property Management Chapter, REIQ

Highly Engaging and Entertaining


It is Diane’s long-standing theatre, television and radio experience which qualifies her as a speaker who holds the audience in the palm of her hand. She is a master speaker who loves what she does, and audiences love her practical strategies that they can apply personally and professionally. They regularly comment on her command of the room, the power of her presentations and her unique approach that has them dancing in the aisles.

Bringing a track record of connection, creativity and confidence to every event, Diane is a speaker you can trust to take your people on an engaging and entertaining journey, as they unlearn the old and lean into a new, more daring perspective on leadership.

Educational and Empowering​

As an award-winning author of multiple books, she possesses the rare ability of distilling complex information into easy-to-understand take-aways, delivering it with a touch of light-hearted humor and infectious joie de vivre.

Awarded an International Women’s Day Leadership Award, Diane is a powerhouse of educated insight, practical experience and dynamic delivery who can light up your leaders to accelerate results.
