Communicate Clearly. Connect Easily.

Diane’s programs provide a comfortable forum for people to take on the uncomfortable. Even introverts frequently comment that they went from skeptical to enthusiastic in a short amount of time. Audiences connect with her down-to- earth practical information, filled with specific tips and tricks. Authentic, charming and authoritative, she shares her own vulnerabilities, fears, successes, and how she found her personal presence in writing, consulting and speaking.

About Diane Darling

How we connect to one another is key to our professional and personal success. 

Hi, I am Diane Darling! I provide multiple ways to help you gain the skills you need and the strategy to implement them. In order to overcome my fear of public speaking, I took stand up comedy.

Looking for an engaging speaker who will get people off their phones and actually talking to others at a conference, fundraiser, or sales meeting?

Unlike typical keynote speakers perched at a podium, Diane walks the floor and directly interacts with the audience. People leave laughing and exchanging business cards with people they just met. She invigorates the event and attendees act on what they learned for the rest of the event and back to the office.

She was even the commencement speaker at MIT Charm School (yes there is such a thing).

At the age of six, my family moved to Asia and thus began my interest in diverse cultures, languages, and food. To date, I have been to all seven continents and roughly 60 countries.

McGraw-Hill has published my books in nine languages which is impressive, however I only speak English! Organizations such as MD Anderson Cancer Center, 20th Century Fox, Fidelity Investments, Cisco, and even MIT Charm School (yes there is such a thing!) have hired me. My programs are informative, inspirational, and witty.

Think of hiring an executive chef – someone who listens to your appetite and respects your wallet. I create a unique program to meet your needs and the expectations of your audience.

Diane teaches that generating clients isn't a matter of closing ‘sales’; it's a matter of building relationships with people you want to help and who want to help you.
