What Attendees & Hosts Say...
Dianne flew to the US to prepare our California based Bolthouse team then coached and educated our corporate change leaders in how to set up & deliver the change program.
Dianne’s wealth of knowledge, her excellent preparation and engaging delivery as well as her willingness to adopt a flexible work arrangement (accommodating east & west coast US operations) made the process even more successful. Dianne’s tenacity, empathy and capacity for work made what could have been remarkably clunky, run seamlessly
Dianne is an engaging speaker and her knowledge and first hand experiences of Workplace Mental Health Issues really shined a light on this difficult subject. I would recommend any Executive book Dianne as a keynote speaker to address this important topic.
I reached out to Dianne in the midst of a mid-life career change and we engaged in a number of coaching sessions via Zoom. Dianne is a keen listener and was able to rapidly dial-in to my intentions and state of mind... even from the other side of the world. She was quick to help me clarify my priorities, pinpoint high-value ideas and identify potential gaps.
Dianne was flexible in applying a blend of personal experience and solid change-management principles to familiar and unfamiliar territory alike. Her high level of empathy for others, especially those who are struggling personally, is a strength that sets her apart from the rest
My most recent engagement with Dianne is as a Change Coach and Strategy Consultant for a our integration with Pacific Foods. She has been an extremely valuable partner in helping to develop a comprehensive and fully executable change management strategy based on the organization’s culture and change aptitude.
Dianne has a keen ability to navigate through complex and unfamiliar dynamics to simplify solutions and generate results in a very practical way. As a coach, she is skillful in challenging one’s perceptions of situational limitations and risks and builds great relationships that get the best out of her clients. Her flexibility and willingness to adjust her schedule to accommodate international time differences made it easy to work with her and enabled an extremely successful partnership.
Thank you for encouraging "Courageous Conversations".
Every organisation no matter the size or industry should consider inviting you. By talking about your own experience and sharing statistics you made issues with mental health seem common and nothing to be ashamed off. Your story was brave and inspirational and you have shared valuable advice for all.
Thank you Dianne for coming and speaking to our employees on R U OK? day.
Your authenticity, transparency and thought leadership was truly inspiring. Highly recommend and I look forward to working together in the future.
Dianne is an incredible speaker with a powerful message. Her personal experience and corporate expertise brings credibility to her service offering as a change agent in the mental health space. I like her courage in working with the C-suite to tackle the issue directly. A force in this movement, I am keenly interested in seeing Dianne make a dent in the corporate sector.
Apart from her excellence and professionalism as a senior change professional, Dianne naturally took the role of mentor to staff moving into the change field. She set up mentoring sessions and workshops to build capability with our internal full-time staff. Dianne is highly respected by the team and still plays a role in supporting them whenever called upon.
Dianne is a considered and methodical change lead whose focus and leadership has quietly brought together different stakeholders to deliver real and sustainable changes in a challenging environment. To that end Dianne is willing to flex and adapt her role to achieve project delivery. She is an amazing mentor and integral to building a culture of collaboration and inclusion. However it her decency, values and loyalty that are greatest strengths.
Dianne is an inspirational leader, solutions focused and one of the most professionally brilliant and beautiful people I have worked with. She stands out in my mind as having an amazing impact on my career and growth as a leader.
I have been blown away by how Dianne has helped me meet some goals in a relatively short period of time. I feel empowered and have already been integrating the skills I've learned into my everyday life. This has been a great coaching program!
Dianne is an excellent Coach and it was exactly what I needed at that point in transition.
Dianne helped me to make choices and establish positive habits that I still practice every day.
Our 6 sessions were transformative
I had a chance to work with Dianne and she was instrumental to facilitate my introspection for a brand-new area of professional development that I wanted to kick-off. I do not hesitate to recommend Dianne to any person who would like to get an honest, professional and supportive approach to your career change or challenges you may have
