People Are Talking
“Diane's intentionality and energy made my experience with her as an instructor truly impactful. She took the time to break down complex theory and make it actionable, specific, and digestible. I've experienced a few professional courses, and my time with Diane was easily the most enriching to both my classroom environment and in post-class retention. I hope to take another class from her soon!”
Product Marketing Manager, Developer Platform at Zoom Video Communications
“I have a great deal of respect for Diane as a business strategist, department leader, and career mentor. She has expertise working in all phases of product development and marketing, whether it’s steering a company’s strategy, planning at the market- or product-level, or driving discreet projects and programs. Diane has the unique ability to view the product both through the lens of the company, and perhaps more importantly, the customer. She also understands the human element of managing and mentoring people. Diane hired me 2009 for a position that fit my background and potential, and has been an excellent mentor since.”
Vice President, Product Marketing and Commercial Solutions at Clarivate
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with many Pragmatic instructors and Diane is by far my favorite. She is engaging, funny, and most importantly understands Product inside and out. If you are looking for someone who can help your organization learn and apply the Pragmatic framework, I highly recommend Diane!”
AVP, Product Operations at Cox Automotive
“It was a true pleasure to work for Diane at CCC. She brings a great balance of strategic thinking and creative savvy. Diane brought a management style that empowered team members to do our best work and made it clear through her actions that she would not hesitate to advocate on our behalf. From a strategic level, Diane excelled at identifying and bringing together the right people to drive initiatives and achieve goals. Some of Diane's greatest strengths, which I appreciated on a day-to-day basis, were her keen ability to listen and her great sense of humor.
