  About the Presenter

confidence, knowing, compassion, strength, warmth, caring

Decades ago I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Toastmasters International.  That first meeting was the genesis of my ‘confidence coaching’.  You see I had very little so I already valued confidence highly.  I can confidently say that my work ethic, organisational skills, leadership practices are a direct result of my involvement with this renowned communication organisation.  I have been honoured with many awards local, national and International including the coveted ‘Toastmasters International Presidential Citation’ for outstanding services to communication and leadership.  One cannot know what a one shaky, faltering speech can lead to!

I incorporate Life Coaching skills, NLP techniques, EFT and other processes and draw on my nursing background, life experiences and Toastmasters leadership skills to enhance my qualifications as a coach, mentor, trainer and presenter. I have overcome significant personal challenges and I deliver potentially sensitive subjects with humour, diplomacy and compassion, providing pathways to improve communication, productivity, confidence and self-esteem.

I speak widely to audiences on confidence and personal presentation, coach one-on-one and facilitate small groups.

I authored and published my personal story, worked for 30 years as a health professional and I have had 30 years experience of Committee and Board service.

What Clients have said

“With Di Riddell, what you see is what you get. When you set eyes on her, you see that she is always immaculately presented; you see that she has a professional air about her and you see that she looks the part and is comfortable at the lectern. Inside this professional exterior lies an intelligent, charming, caring and very sincere person. These traits are readily identifiable when she is addressing an audience. I have witnessed Di presenting to audiences of hundreds and she has been professional, controlled and at ease on the stage. Di’s work ethic and organisational skills have been demonstrated through the senior leadership roles that she has taken on during her many decades of involvement with the renowned communication organisation, Toastmasters International. But like the ad says – ‘But wait, there’s more’. Di’s welcoming smile and sense of fun and humour help to engage an audience and allow them to sit back and enjoy the occasion.”

“Di Riddell is an exciting, entertaining and well researched speaker who brings enthusiasm, humour and presence to an event. She was one was one of three speakers chosen to be part of Family Planning Queensland’s 40th Celebrations and from our first contact Di was professional, involved and supportive. Her positive energy and skill as a Presenter, gained over a 35 year period, has earned her a trusted and respected reputation. This was evident as she captivated our audience with confidence and enthusiasm. On the night she achieved this through ‘learning, lightness and laughter’ on the sensitive subject of sensuality.

Excellent content, great message …and genuinely funny! If you want your group revitalised, mentally nourished and left with a message…then call Di, we highly recommend her as a speaker. Thanks Di!”
