Diane was a guest speaker and mentor in a week-long course I run and she was an invaluable asset the entire week. She presented one particularly challenging topic related to a complicated and important set of administrative and bureaucratic Navy Reserve processes, which most people don’t truly understand but wish they did. Diane’s presentation was engaging, clear, and she masterfully tied everything together in a way people understood. Her use of specific examples was critical to drawing out points that are normally overlooked due to complexity of the material. Her presentation style and commentary also encouraged thoughtful questions and discussion during the presentation, which amplified the overall learning. I would highly recommend Diane as a presenter on any topic she feels comfortable presenting. She clearly puts significant time and strategy into her presentation so it will resonate best with the audience. I hope to have her present in my course again, on the same topic or others.
