“Diane customized a Storytelling for Business workshop for my group of about 90 employees. Her interactive presentation focused on “The Story Effect”… that telling the right stories to the right people will lead to amazing things. For a sales organization, this was right on! Diane led us through a series of stories and situations, explaining how “The Story Effect” works and more importantly – how to apply it to sales. She engaged every single person through interactive exercises that reiterated the points she presented. The person who presented after Diane used some of the skills he had just learned from Diane while making his presentation.”

~Amy Farsht, National Strategic Relations Manager, Thomson Reuters


“All the way through the process of initial engagement, to the end result, Diane far exceeded our expectations. Her easy-going and flexible working style made our planning process simple and uncomplicated. She went above and beyond in researching our organization and tailoring her interactive program to fit our audience perfectly.”

~Angela Eifert, Career and Leadership Chair, Torch Community

“Diane presented the 4 E’s of Leadership to our group of seasoned leaders, many of whom had ‘heard it before’. We had all been through talks about how to manage people, how to get them to do what we want them to, and goal setting. Talk about a challenge! But Diane went beyond the same-old-same-old and spoke to the values behind leading people – the qualities that move your people to the loyalty and action that really good leaders inspire.”

~Mary M. Fischer, CAP-OM, President at City of Lakes Chapter, International Association of Administrative Professionals 


“Diane is a gifted speaker and trainer with an ability to relate to her audiences at multiple levels. In her recent workshop on storytelling in business, she took us through a process that helped identify our own stories and then shape them for effective use them in a business setting. A strong proponent of utilizing story for improved outcomes in business, Diane takes audiences beyond the simple concept that “stories are great” to the nuts and bolts of how to craft and deliver effective stories.”

~Matt Mintz, Sales Associate, FundVantage


“Wow!  Diane Windingland is a dynamic presenter who really understands her audience.  Her speech on mentorship was memorable, fun and provided great insight on how to make a mentor/mentee relationship a winning partnership.  Diane’s conversational techniques were powerful and she weaves interesting stories into her material.  Two thumbs way UP for Diane.”

~Bethany Connelly, Training and Leadership Development, Junior League of Minneapolis


“Diane was great. She started by listening to what I needed and helped me to clarify my expectations. She came to the Leadership Elk River class and presented a polished and professional “lesson plan” for 20 adult learners. Their response was very positive. Not only did Diane come prepared with great visual aids, she also led a very interactive and effective assignment.

~Debbi Rydberg, President Elk River Area Chamber of Commerce


“Diane spoke to our group recently about ‘Dealing with Difficult People.’  She was very skilled in engaging the audience and delivered practical, useful content.”
