Jack Peter, President, World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum
I had the opportunity to work with Di when she hosted the World Golf Hall of Fame’s 2015 Induction Ceremony conducted in St Andrews at the University of St Andrews this past July. She was a consummate professional, a delight to work with and brought a certain elegance and flair to the proceedings. This was the first time we staged the Induction Ceremony outside the US, and Di’s natural charisma and warmth helped elevate the entire event. We’re looking forward to working with her on future events.
Rory McIlroy, Professional Golfer
Di was great fun to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the Q and A she hosted with myself, Rickie and Sergio at the Rory Foundation evening at Daisy Lodge. Her professionalism, wit and charisma added to a great evening and she made sure the audience were highly entertained. The environment created was incredibly relaxed and it set us all up for a fantastic week. I look forward to working with her again.
Steve Martin, CEO, M&C Saatchi
Di was super professional as ever when hosting our Ballantine’s Golf event with Ian Poulter at the Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen. She has a natural ability to make people relaxed in their company and as a result gets the best out of the golfers she interviews. Her understanding of what sponsors require too makes Di a real asset to any brand event.
Tim Lacy, Executive Producer, IMG Productions
“I have employed Di as a presenter and a reporter across many tennis and golf projects in the past 5 years, most noticeably at Wimbledon and The Open Championship. She is without doubt an accomplished professional with outstanding knowledge in both sports but what sets Di apart is her guaranteed enthusiasm and commitment to whatever project she works on, no matter the size. She is a pleasure to have on any team.”
Toni Zverblis, England Golf
“Di was a delight to work with when we held our first annual conference. She’s got a great eye for detail and she was relaxed, funny, charming and utterly professional as she introduced our guests and involved the audience. It was the second time we had worked with Di and we look forward to developing the relationship in the future.”
Guy Kinnings, Global Co-Managing Director, IMG Golf at IMG
IMG have worked with Di for many years now across a wide range of events. She is a hugely engaging, energetic, insightful and polished performer. We thoroughly enjoy working closely with Diana on events such as Golf Live, where her skills really do get the best out of the Tour Professionals, delivering memorable experiences for our valued corporate partners and public visitors
Kimberly McNatt, CEO of Hawn Foundation (on behalf of Goldie Hawn)
We had the pleasure of working with Di on our annual event in London where she officiated as Mistress of Ceremonies. She is a pro, easy to work with and more importantly, flawlessly executed her role. Di is incredibly talented, charismatic, professional, funny and terrific at engaging the crowd and moving the evening forward. Di’s natural ability as a reporter, serves her well. She is relatable, reliable and we hope to work with her again and again on a number of different initiatives!
Stephanie Zinser, Lynx Managing Director
Selecting Di as our Brand Ambassador was an easy choice – Di is fun, easy-going, very smart and always does her homework. She is elegant, charming, persuasive, intelligent and a clear attraction when it comes to golf. She represents values that lie at the core of what we do and who we aspire to be. And she knows her stuff.
George O’Grady, Chief Executive, European Tour
The European Tour has worked with Di on several occasions. In every case she has performed her duties with great style, humour and professionalism and contributed enormously to the success of each function.
Brand Rapport, Vodafone Champions League Final Event
Not only was she a pleasure to work with and on excellent form but she also really understood what the event was about and did an excellent job of conducting questions with the panel.
It’s always a pleasure to see Di at European Tour Events. She’s a lively and fun presenter and a professional, informed interviewer. She has a natural ability to make the players feel at ease and we all appreciate that, especially after a bad day on the course!
Nick Downie, Head of Communications, Stoke Park
Di was an absolute joy to work with at our Boodles tennis event this summer. Di was interviewing the players and then being out on the Stadium court wowing the ever expectant crowds! Throughout the entire event her exquisite presenting skills and wonderful personality shone through, much to the delight of the Boodles guests.
Tony Lester, Head of Sky Academy Sports Scholarships
I’ve had had the pleasure of working with Di on several various occasions over the past two years.
Working with such a professional woman is indeed a revelation, not only is she the consummate professional but also her attention to detail is second to none.
I would like to mention two particular instances that spring to mind, where we saw Di at her professional best. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in the annual Sky Leadership Management Group, and the Sky Academy Sports Scholarship programme. On both occasions Di was the host. To say that she thrived in a pressured situation would be an understatement, she absolutely blossomed. She was the epitome of brilliance. She was calm, engaging and absolutely elegant in her delivery.
I would not hesitate to work with Di again, and I can honestly say that if I have to facilitate any further functions here at Sky or anywhere else, Di will always be my go to person. Her warm infectious personality is the exact tonic needed to break the ice in those sometimes pressurised corporate environments.
I would readily recommend Di’s services in leading and facilitating any corporate or fun environments.
Emma Langbridge, Communications Consultant, #iWill Campaign
Di was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly easy to brief and hosted our event like a complete pro. We paired Di with an inexperienced presenter who she was very supportive of. The two of them did an amazing job ensuring everyone in the audience had both a great time but also understood the purpose of our campaign. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Di.
Nicole Wheatley, Director, Medi8
I had the pleasure of working with Di as host of the inaugural American Golf Awards and Gala dinner. From the first moment I spoke to Di, just weeks before we went ‘live’, to the final curtain call of the evening, she was a joy to work with. As you would expect, Di is extremely professional. She went to a lot of trouble to make sure that she knew everything she could about the event and the award winners. That effort, combined with her engaging, funny and entertaining presenting style, helped to deliver an amazing experience for our guests, which has in turn has brought us and our client high praise. She also made me laugh – a lot! I can’t recommend Di highly enough and look forward to working with her again.
