  • We were able to win Diana Brandl for an inhouse workshop on the future assistant role and personal branding. Due to her extensive experience as an office professional and her infectious passion for this profession, she was able to inspire and motivate our entire team of experienced executive assistants. We took a lot with us and, as a team, moved even closer together. The next workshop will follow soon and we are really looking forward to the sequel. We can highly recommend Diana Brand l- an absolute MUST for the ambitious assistant of today.

  • The Procter and Gamble Geneva Business Assistant Team had the pleasure to host you to give a one day workshop on “Business Assistant 4.0 – Digitization, new work, AI and the future role of the BA”. Your presentation was very well built and structured; with nice pictures, useful tips, funny videos, keywords and others. Nevertheless, you were the key actress of this success: your on-going nature and empathy made all the difference. Our audience could easily get into the mood and identified themselves in your own professional experience to finally guide them as a way to reflect upon their values, challenges and future role.

  • At our worldwide 1st Modern Workplace Assistant Summit at Microsoft in Munich, Diana gave one of her motivating and inspiring keynote on the Assistant 4.0 and conducted a workshop. Her infinitely infectious passion for new work, the brand of the management assistant and the enthusiasm for new technologies and working methods fascinated ALL participants. She encourages assistants to actively shape the transformation of their companies. Diana had by far the best ratings!

    Diana is a very authentic speaker who knows how to take her audience with her. As a former management assistant, she understands the job profile very well and addresses exactly the issues that concern assistants in the age of transformation: Change, culture and understanding of roles. Without Diana’s absolutely unbeatable network and the valuable input on the content, we would not have been able to make this event so public. Her recommendation in her network to attend this event made a big contribution to the success.
    We were very happy to win Diana for us and would bring her back to the stage at any time when it comes to inspiring the “hidden heroes” of the Digital Transformation with our technology and the way we work.

  • I was so pleased Diana agreed to coach me.  Diana is extremely well respected and sought after and I feel so lucky that I had the opportunity to work with the best.  Diana was exactly like I thought she would be, extremely supportive and encouraging but more importantly, challenging.  She encouraged me to think bigger to stretch myself and as a result I have new ideas and motivation.  It makes all the difference to know that her support is there.
