Side Doors: Access your genius, speak your genius

Every great leader who’s cracked the code of their industry has done it with the help of what Dia calls their “side door”—their own personal and unofficial access point into their genius. For some, it’s about technique. For others, it’s about process or even something unimaginable.

In this keynote, Dia captivates and activates audiences by sharing secrets from her years of communications coaching for power-house leaders and entrepreneurs in tech, global sport and social impact.. Her insights reveal how attendees can detect their own “side door”, access their genius, speak their genius and catalyze their leadership and impact through their own work and story.

“We hired Dia to run a session for our entire business team at Quartz and she was absolutely terrific. Her content was on point and her real-world examples were relevant to our teams. If you’re looking for middle-of-the-road, she’s not it. But if you’re looking for someone to have an impact and activate your audience, book her. Her enthusiasm is contagious and really engaged a team that can be wary of “speakers” and “trainers.” If you have a chance to have her in a room with your audience or team, you should do it.”
