How can a concert violinist help maximize results and influence?

Diane knows the personal barriers that keep people from operating in their A-Game, especially when it matters most. As a peak performance and leadership speaker, Diane speaks for associations, corporations, and various organizations that rely on high performance and on cultivating leaders throughout all levels. Audiences gain their own personalized steps for consistent excellence, increasing their effectiveness, their engagement, and the bottom line.

Due to extreme shyness both Diane's voice and her music were trapped inside of her. What began as a personal challenge to overcome her inhibitions and own her A-Game, has grown into a passion and a mastery for helping others to own theirs. The Own Your A-Game System® consists of various methods to access personal peak performance plus the neuroscience to back it up. Diane’s mission is to make peak performance accessible to all walks of life. As a result, people increase their personal satisfaction and their overall well-being by fulfilling on their potential.

Unlike other peak performance speakers, Diane is not an athlete. She was the concertmaster (the lead violin player) of the Central Oregon Symphony for 15 years where she was expected to lead with her heart and always be in her A-Game.

Diane is sponsored by The Electric Violin Shop and delivers her keynote performances with her Copper Dragon Violin (Instagram: @copperdragonviolin).

Diane and her bass playing husband's eyes first met across the orchestra while performing. They now live in beautiful Bend, OR. Empty nesters, their son is owning his A-Game as a budding pilot. When not speaking, Diane can be found out on a hike, doing hot yoga, or practicing improv. And while she finds sewing a button the most challenging thing on the planet, she’ll drop everything to share about her profound experiences with Hospice and her mother's passing while bringing levity and profound understanding to difficult topics.
