Marketing Director | Schoonenberg HoorSupport

Diana is a genuine communications professional. Her strength lies in the combination of analytical skills and an almost perfect intuition for in- and external sensitivities. She creatively finds solutions for complex matters and won’t give up easily (read: hardly ever). It is a joy to work together with Diana!

Senior Developer | Eneco Energie

Diana heeft in korte tijd en onder hoge tijdsdruk een aantal communicatie activiteiten opgepakt voor de bio-energiecentrale Eneco BEC Groene Weide. Diana houdt van snel doorpakken en is goed in organiseren. Daarbij krijgt zij veel dingen voor elkaar. Vanaf het begin heeft ze mij ontzorgd en was ze in control van de operatie. Ze zoekt actief de samenwerking met anderen op en zorgt voor teamgevoel waar nodig. Ik ben blij dat we haar hebben aangetrokken voor deze klus en vond het ook prettig om met haar samen te werken.

Chairman Board of Directors | Woonstad Rotterdam

Diana always starts working with a smile, even in situations that are not easy. She is professional, decisive, sensitive and analytical. She took care of the internal communications around the accomplishment of our new organisation strategy. In this process she made sure our people were involved in the several milestones and the new strategy. The internal communications in general has improved to a great deal because of her approach.
In addition Diana analysed the current state of our organisation culture. We now have a good basis to continue to work towards the desired culture.

Director Individual Clients | Rabobank Amerstreek

Diana is a very motivated professional. In a difficult situation she swiftly set the direction and got her team members involved. She sets clear goals and has a clear vision on how to embed the marketing and communications profession in the organisation in the best way. I have come to know Diana as an open and pleasant colleague.

Chairman Board of Directors Rabobank | West-Brabant Noord

Diana is an excellent manager for teams that are going trough changes. She is an active and independent interim manager. To me active means ‘considering, thinking, daring and taking action’ and Diana shows a good balance in these four characteristics.

Diana has a clear vision about the Marketing and Communications profession, she enables these disciplines in the organisation, she monitors the necessary quality and ensures the individual roles of the people are in line with what is needed. Her level of quality is high, she expects that of her team members and shows the right model behaviour.

Her management style is open and transparent. She does not avoid an argument and at the same time respects possible accompanying issues. She can pretty easily change her style as necessary. In addition she has shown a good sensitivity concerning the consequences of her actions towards co-managers and members of the Board of Directors.

The commitment and flexibility that Diana showed during her one full year assignment were extensive. Consequently, I am extremely satisfied with the way she has fulfilled this assignment.

Senior businessconsultant | Rabobank Nederland

Ik heb Diana leren kennen als een zeer gedreven professional. Empatisch en sensitief maar als het moet ook hard op de inhoud.

Samen met Diana en het lokale projectteam heb ik een verbeterprogramma bij een grote lokale bank doorgevoerd waarbij Diana als geen ander de verbinding wist te leggen tussen de commerciële directoraten en de stafentiteit waar Diana interim-manager van was. Hierdoor is de bank in staat gesteld:

  • om meer langs gestandaardiseerde processen te gaan werken en verspillingen te reduceren.
  • de dynamiek in haar markt bewuster in te schatten.
  • zich bewust geworden dat er ook binnen een stafeenheid nog veel te winnen is in termen van efficiënt werken en een duidelijker taakafbakening.
  • Lean Six Sigma voor de gehele organisatie toepasbaar is.

 

Het enthousiasme waarmee Diana de theorie van Lean Six Sigma heeft doorvertaald naar haar eigen eenheid heeft mij en de projectmedewerkers veel positieve energie gebracht en heeft de bank geholpen bij het bereiken van een bovengemiddeld goed resultaat.

We have come to know Diana as a very involved, committed and enthusiastic colleague. Characteristic is her way of working with other people, and her positive, professional, service minded and practical attitude. With her enthusiasm she always creates a positive and nice environment. In addition, I always valued her effectiveness and decisiveness very much: whenever she is committed to a task, she makes sure it gets done.

IT Services Manager Business Analysis | Ernst & Young AG

Diana and me were managing the implementation of an internal communication site (based on a content management system) for some 20.000 employees in 20 countries. I liked her passion and dedication which led us into some interesting and challenging discussions, which always were productive and focussed on improving the outcome.

I think without her constant inspiration for getting yet a better solution we would have not archived the high quality system we got in the end. Working with Diana was always pleasing, even when we disagreed on details we always were good spirited, the team was in harmony and the project really progressed based on this. I really miss her and would love to work with her again.
