Currently she is a regular guest on Anything Goes hosted by Bennet Pomerantz on Blog Talk Radio.
Di is an active competitive Toastmaster and her speaking engagements have taken her throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean; and even gave her the opportunity to present at the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa, Canada.
Di’s extensive writing and media career began when she joined the Training and Development staff of the Zale Corporation in Dallas, Texas, and was quickly promoted to Director of Training for a 38-store division operating throughout the Western U.S. She produced a prolific portfolio using print, multimedia, sound, and video, focusing on sales training and exemplary customer service.
