The session was fantastic. I only heard positive things about  it. The only thing I would do differently would be to book you longer. The group really got a lot out of your session. I appreciate all of your hard work and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Jackie Myers

Thank you again for the session yesterday. You were present with the group, made it relevant to our line of work and we felt significant even if we are a small organization in the range of your clientele. You certainly demonstrated effective communication in a comfortable yet challenging way and provided concrete skills that we will definitely follow up on here. You gave me much to work with.

In fact, I am working on a proposal right now that has the potential to significantly alter the future of my company and I feel much more confident in its success because of what I learned. As a speaker and trainer, Dianna is thoroughly engaging, uses lots of interaction to keep people actively involved and has some of the best handouts I saw in three days of presentations by the industry’s best speakers and trainers.

JJ Lauderbaugh

The training I received from Dianna revolutionized my business writing and public speaking. The greatest increase in my personal development was learning to be concise, clear, and persuasive in both emails and public speaking.

Kenny Price
Executive Director, Transform This City

It is a pleasure to speak to the relevant information you provided to the attendees of the CPC Job Connections Career Summit… It was apparent by the enthusiastic reaction from the audience that you came well prepared to deliver helpful communication techniques and resources. Everyone I spoke with said that your presentation will benefit them in future professional communication . I also want to commend the team that supports you. Their assistance helps you execute a program that is both impactful and memorable.

Erin Robinson

Simply incredible: Specific. Relevant. Engaging. Credible. Of all the communication and executive speakers I have experienced in 30 years of business, Dianna is clearly one of the best, if not the best, speaker I have heard.

Tim Alba
Executive Pastor, CrossCity Church, Colleyville, TX

I recently contracted Dianna Booher to speak at one of our area-wide publishing events on the topic of persuasive communication. Our audience spanned novice to upper-level executives. From the audience comments afterward, Dianna did an excellent job in giving them great take-away value. In her highly interactive session, she did a great job of applying research from her latest book to specific workplace issues. In preparing for the event, I found Dianna to be very flexible, accommodating, and detail-oriented.

Kelli Haus

I first connected with Dianna Booher at an NSA conference ten years ago at her session on how to write a book in 8 weeks. The model and process she presented was clear and do-able and her presentation style was engaging. Dianna delivers quality and I recommend her for anyone looking to improve their writing and communication skills.

Cindy Stynchula
Owner, Stynchula & Associates

The event succeeded our (high) expectations. Yesterday Scott spent considerable time relating our experience to the CEO of the company we are working closely with; I expect you will be hearing from him….There is a good possibility we will engage you for another event.

Dave Draft
Director of Operations, Sealy & Company

Your presentation itself was very dynamic and energetic—I especially like your use of humor to illustrate some very important communication concepts. I suppose there is a degree of pressure for a speaker who is known as a ‘communication expert.’ But you certainly demonstrate that expertise and walk the talk!

Gay Knight
Program Manager, Communications Curriculum, IBM

Absolutely a wonderful two days….Many participants commented on how practical your insights were and how they walked away with ways to apply what you taught.

I’ve learned much from Dianna over the years about writing and publishing. Whenever I had a question, she was the first person I’d call. Her expertise is both deep and wide and you’ll benefit richly from her ideas and insights.”

Mark Sanborn
Author of The Fred Factor and You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader

I walked out with drafts of the specific documents necessary to launch my book project and a plan for how to make it happen this year. This alone made the course worthwhile. But I actually walked out with much more−a vision of how to use this book project to re-create by business, launch new products, and build a platform for meteoric growth−and the confidence to make it happen. That made the course a life-changing event for me.

Dianna is so impressive—her stamina, passion, and knowledge stand out. I have been so intimidated by proposals…but Dianna’s GYBP seminar broke down all the barriers.

Lorri Allen
Speaker, Author, Journalist

Dianna and I met at a speaking convention…and had I met her earlier, I wouldn’t have made mistakes during my book publishing journey. Dianna is a luminary in her field…When I asked her to review my book proposal, she provided an arsenal of advice and asked a series of questions that drew out my strengths (that I didn’t even know to include), pinpointed my deficient areas, and ultimately led me to develop a robust document of 54 pages, up from an incomplete one of 14. In short, Dianna is an accomplished professional—one whom I greatly admire—whose experience, expertise, and wisdom are unmatched.

Taking Dianna Booher’s Get Your Book Published program was one of the wisest business decisions I’ve made. The program itself was outstanding. The course material was detailed, practical and very helpful…and Dianna’s guidance and assistance with my contract questions and finding a literary agent were pivotal to me publishing with Wiley. If it wasn’t for her, I’m sure I wouldn’t have gotten the book deal that I did. I felt like she was my personal book whisperer.

Peri Shawn

Outstanding…from both a content and learning standpoint. The manual is phenomenal. I am more motivated than ever to complete the book. Thank you for an outstanding experience.
