Solving the diversity dilemma – one speech at a time.

Presented by Diana Thomson – international speaker, author and coach. Specialising in working with diverse groups to get their voices heard.

Join us for this free lunch-time Diversity Agenda webinar, where Diana will cover:

  • Why some people from minority groups hold back from speaking up, and some possible consequences of this
  • How managers and employers can assist employees to gain more confidence, conviction, and courage with their public speaking skills
  • Encouragement for individuals to identify their strengths and gain skills and experience in areas of weakness so they will build not only speaking confidence, but self confidence


Diana Thomson started her speaking career in Singapore and upon returning to New Zealand she started SpeechMarks Coaching to empower New Zealand women. She wants to ensure they’re heard in business and their communities and Industries.

Diana has helped New Zealand women articulate their business niche, increase sales, as well as engage and inspire the people around them. Diana is also an author, with her book Anyone Can Speak Confidently (formerly known as The Naked Speaker), now available via online book retailers such as Amazon.

This webinar has been especially developed for the Diversity Agenda by Diana to expand beyond gender diversity to be useful to all people.
