Grow Your Brand, Influence, and Impact Through Thought Leadership

Thought leadership is not just for the CEO. Positioning yourself as a thought leader in your field, industry, or area of expertise can help you define a clearer message that resonates with more people and creates more momentum for your cause, your work, and your brand. Learn how being seen as a thought leader and leveraging the right tools to get your thought leadership message in front of your audience can help you uplevel your career or business, grow your influence, and create a bigger impact.


Diane Diaz is a Speaking Coach and Personal Brand Strategist with Speaking Your Brand®, whose mission is to help more women develop the communication skills, platform, and confidence to step into thought leadership, influence, and power, on stages, in the media, in business, on boards, and in politics because it's through women’s stories, voices, and visibility, that we challenge the status quo and change existing systems, to benefit more people.


Diane regularly speaks on thought leadership, personal branding, LinkedIn strategy, and women's empowerment. She also currently teaches branding and marketing classes at Full Sail University, holds a Master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida, and has many years of experience in branding, marketing, public speaking, and education. 





Women's Executive Council Sisters

As the world has been impacted by COVID-19 and our normal monthly luncheons have been replaced with online meetings, the need in our community for scholarships still remains strong.  Central to the core mission of the Women's Executive Council, we believe in education, and every year since 1987 we have provided scholarships to women in our community.  This year is no exception.  Now more than ever, WEC is committed to continuing to help those in need. 

One way that we can do that is to donate the amount of money you would normally spend on our luncheons directly to our scholarship fund.  Please do this by clicking the DONATE NOW button.  Thank you.
