Diana’s passion is to Educate and Empower people to indentify their Big Dream Goal and then work out a strategy to achieve that goal.
Being qualified as a Home Science Teacher, Recruitment Consultant and Accountant has enabled her to develop excellent communication skills which are the core of her Business Mentoring and KeyNote Speaking business today.
Over the years she has also lived in different cultures and those experiences have broadened her understanding of ‘what makes people different’. In the 1980’s, Diana spent 7 years in the Solomon Islands. She went out there as a volunteer teacher for 1 year and ended up working for the Ministry of Finance, setting up a new Price Control Department.
Diana has traveled extensively. Her last big adventure was in 2000 when she took a year off work and backpacked around the world on her own. It was an amazing experience and taught her what is really important in life – your health and your safety. Everything else is just ‘stuff’!!!!
Diana has lived in Australia for the past 9 years, the last 5 in Brisbane and the previous 4 in Currumbin, on the Gold Coast.
In 2002, Diana won the Annual Gold Coast Speakers Inter Club Speech contest, the ‘Gary Muller Award for Communication Excellence.’
For the past 7 years Diana has been involved with Business Network International (BNI) which is an organisation where groups of business people meet each week with the sole purpose of giving 'word of mouth' referral business to each other.
Diana was the Regional Director of BNI Brisbane South for 2 years, during which time she grew the region by 50% net growth within the first 12 months. She is now known as the 'Networking Guru'. She has extensive knowledge on effective networking and one of her favourite sayings is 'People do business with people, not companies'.
With over 36 years experience as a Professional Executive, Diana now utilizes her finely tuned communication skills, to help individuals and companies achieve their goals. She facilitates this by offering:-
- Private Consultations
- Group Workshops and Seminars
- Keynote Speaking Engagements
Diana is working on her first book which tells the story of her trip in 2000. It is called ‘Walking in Sunshine’. She has also just finished recording her first Educational CD ‘Oils ain’t Oils’, the difference between Aromatherapy Grade and Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
