About Diane

Diane is a leading organisation and leadership development consultant, facilitator and Executive coach. She works across sectors with a portfolio of clients in Europe, Asia, Australasia and the Middle East. Diane is particularly adept at connecting with people quickly and uses her multi-cultural experiences to enrich her work with organisations, teams and individuals.

Diane is known for taking calculated risks with herself and clients to enable them to become more than they ever thought possible. She says: “I grew up body surfing the waves around the coast of South Africa. I had to learn to read the energy of each wave and position myself well in order to surf them safely. When working with clients, I read where their energy and motivation lies and use this to make decisions on how best I can have an impact on their growth and development as individuals and within their teams.” As a result of these formative experiences, Diane has developed a unique ability to provide supportive challenge and empower others to achieve their potential – whatever their level.

“Diane has supported me over the past few months to transition into a more senior role. She has a way of balancing, what can sometimes be tough feedback, with kindness and compassion. Diane always has suggestions and tools that help support your development. Personally, Diane has helped me develop as a leader, given me tools to address challenging situations and helped me to become more resilient, which is proving beneficial both in the workplace and my personal life”
