She provided exceptional guidance on major presentations and speeches delivered to employees, the investment community and external partners. From crystallizing the message to impactful delivery; Diane strenghtened my effectiveness as CEO. We expanded Diane's role to include assisting a number of my executive team in both business plan and investor presentations. Diane is much more than a presentation skills coach. She not only can provide significant insight into the message preparation and delivery; she can contribute into your overall strategy.
