"Diana Kander's All in Startup and the training that she provided my product management team contains the principles that can make a significant impact on our organization's business results. My team really enjoyed the hands on interaction with Diana and the mentoring that she provided. The level of engagement from Diana made it really meaningful and much more personal. Most importantly the training has provided a roadmap for transforming our business into a more entrepreneurial company."

"Diana spoke at one of our recent Leaders Conferences. We received many positive comments about her message and engaging speaking style. I would highly recommend Diana to any organization who wants a speaker who has lived the life of an entrepreneur and can communicate in a relevant and humorous way what it takes to start a business and be successful."

"Diana's skills at listening to her customer's needs and collaborating on the content, allowed her to deliver a keynote presentation that resonated with our salesforce and aligned with our corporate goals. She understood how to tailor her message, engage her audience in the learning, and then challenge the participants to make behavioral changes after the event. We were extremely happy to have Diana highlight our sales summit."

"Diana's talk was amazing. It was one of the most talked about presentations at our two day event – both over social media and in person at the event itself. She was funny, engaging, thought provoking and truly able to connect with the audience – and it definitely showed. The gushing praise we received from our attendees was overwhelming."

ABOUT DIANA KANDER

Diana Kander is a New York Times Best-selling author, entrepreneur, innovation consultant, and keynote speaker who asks some big questions. What causes big, household brands to lose relevance with their customers and go out of business? Can organizational decline be prevented? What kind of culture needs to exist in an organization to ensure innovative ideas and practices? And how has Snoop Dogg continued to innovate decade after decade to stay relevant to the next generation?

Diana has spent her career challenging assumptions and asking thought-provoking questions. A serial entrepreneur who entered the United States as a refugee at the age of 8, she has launched and sold millions of dollars worth of products and services.

After detailing her biggest lessons learned in her first book, All In Startup, Diana started receiving requests from organizations to help their employees think more like entrepreneurs.

While working with her clients, Diana’s personal curiosity about process and culture within large companies inspired her to develop the approach outlined in her second book. The Curiosity Muscle demonstrates how a loss of curiosity hurts companies and how it can be repaired using Diana’s prescription for reconnecting with customers.

Diana has truly cracked the code on how Curiosity can serve as the catalyst for exponential growth and she thrives on helping organizations understand that they can always get better results if they learn how to ask better questions.

DIANA KANDER PROGRAMS & TOPICS

How to Compete on Value instead of Price in a Commodity Business

Are you competing on price or value with your customers? If your focus is on value (which it should be), are you missing some key blindspots in your product or service? Are you measuring true data about the health of your project or just relying on vanity metrics that are concealing what’s really going on? This presentation teaches a methodology used by both entrepreneurs and established organizations to continuously create new value for their customers. You will learn the key questions you must ask in order to uncover value-creating opportunities, as well as precisely how to ask them to effectively yield useful insights.

ROI & Key Outcomes:

  • Change the way you solicit feedback from customers to make it more actionable
  • Learn the key customer questions that will uncover value-creating opportunities.
  • Shift the way you compete for business

Increasing the Speed of Innovation

The pace of change in today’s economy requires innovative, value-adding ideas to come from all parts of your organization – whether they are internal improvements or new sources of revenue. The way managers were traditionally trained stifles innovation and forces out-of-the-box thinkers out of the company. This interactive presentation outlines the must-have skill sets to effectively lead your employees. Diana will provide the framework for how your organization – and the people within it – can flourish in this hyper-competitive world.

ROI & Key Outcomes:

  • Learn new skill sets required of the innovative leader
  • Avoid common pitfalls of innovative leadership
  • Create an internal culture of innovation so that every employee is a resource to the effort

How to Significantly Increase User Adoption of New Initiatives Inside Your Organization

Have you had trouble getting everyone in the organization on board with new programs and initiatives? Maybe it’s time to try the methodology entrepreneurs use to virally spread new ideas and achieve exponential adoption. You see, everyone in your organization is not created equal; there are four distinct types of users and each group needs to be communicated with in a unique way. This session will give you both the methodology and tools to increase adoption of every new program you roll out as well as underperforming existing programs.

ROI & Key Outcomes:

  • Understand why your current program or initiative isn’t sticking
  • Learn how to launch new programs the same way successful entrepreneurs launch new products
  • Understand the four distinct types of “users” of programs in your organization and why their differences impact program adoption.

Why Curiosity Is the Ultimate Competitive Advantage

This keynote explains exactly why most companies reaching the peak of their potential lose their curiosity and crash into irrelevance. From how we develop blind spots about our business, to the pitfalls of feeling like an expert, this thought-provoking, engaging program reveals the smokescreens obscuring imminent threats to long-term viability and walks you through specific ways to boost innovation, uncover customer needs, solve problems, create new value for customers, and increase employee engagement. Most importantly, Diana demonstrates why curiosity is your greatest asset to drive constant innovation and help your company thrive and compete on more than price alone – ultimately, future-proofing your business.

ROI & Key Outcomes:

  • How you can institutionalize curiosity and ask better questions to stay competitive and relevant to your customers and drive growth
  • How you can dramatically reduce the risk of new ideas and create a more innovative culture that leads to results
  • How to determine pitfalls within your organization and avoid falling into the “expert trap”
