Now, more than ever, creativity, adaptability and innovation have become top soft skills. But due to the pandemic, people lack motivation and are burned out. Eloquent Expression’s Founder Diane Allen, provides the solution. Her proprietary process helps to increase the bottom line by empowering people to be at their best any time, any place, no matter how high the pressure


Diane Allen spent many years training to be a professional violinist. Feeling bulletproof with her New York City violin training, she was caught off guard when her nerves would get the better part of her during auditions. Unable to show her high skill level under high pressure, Diane struggled to get the work she was qualified for.

After 10 years of trial and error, Diane discovered that when she performed in her flow state, not only would her nerves go away, but she’d achieve personal bests on a daily basis. So, she made getting into her flow state a repeatable process which is outlined in her TED talk. She went on to become the concertmaster (lead violinist) of the Central Oregon Symphony for 15 years and taught hundreds of violin students.

Ready to make a bigger impact, Diane now delivers keynote performances that combine music, visuals, psychology, neuroscience along with specific how-to’s showing people the steps to deeply engage, refuel, tap into creativity, and become fully utilized.

Eloquent Expression LLC is poised to introduce training programs.
