“I have worked with Diana, to provide global client solutions, for a decade. She is a consummate professional who is able to quickly read and adapt to her audience. What makes Diana stand out though is her intellectual grasp of the soft skills arena. As a published writer her book on soft skills is still my go-to reference whenever I approach a new subject. In short, I would recommend Diana to any client.”
Global head of Executive Development, Euromoney Learning
“Diana truly models the messaging of her programming and is highly attuned to the importance of building quality relationships with her clients. She goes above and beyond the typical consulting relationship to provide exceptional support and feedback to better the programming we facilitate with her. Staff and faculty at our institution seek out her sessions because they know they will be high quality learning opportunities which are both real and relevant, and contribute significantly to their success in their given roles.”
