“Diane has provided outstanding consulting support to me, the charities our company supports, and to other organizations to which Diane was referred.
As a consultant to BCBSF, Diane’s support has included: special event planning and implementation, sponsorship recruitment, graphic design, print production, photography, and communications and management planning.
The work products were delivered on time or ahead of schedule and on-or under-budget were high quality and met the needs of BDBSF and the charities with which we worked.
Diane’s consulting skills and resources in many instances were the difference between a good event and an outstanding event. her attention to detail and her ability to envision the big picture and to manage the minutia were instrumental to successful outcomes”
