Diane F. Wyzga, RN, JD

Storyteller

“Tell me a fact and I'll remember for a moment. Tell me a story and I'll remember for a lifetime."


Who Am I:

If you could find a way to be of use in the world, would you tell stories? Of course you would; it’s how we are wired to relate to each other. I am a storyteller - although lawyers call me a trial consultant and leaders call me a communications expert and just about everyone else calls me a professional speaker. As a storyteller I help lawyers win, help leaders lead, and help all the rest of us succeed by applying storytelling techniques and principles to enhance professional creativity, hone critical listening skills, and influence listeners far beyond the reach of any PowerPoint presentation.

Bio:

Imagine this: a former United States Navy nurse, business woman, and litigator goes back to her roots and learns the value of stories and storytelling to persuade, guide and inspire. Today she takes those skills on the road as Lightning Rod Communications to train lawyers and corporate leaders and management staff to identify, shape and effectively deliver their stories using language with power, passion and precision. Her clients effectively incorporate storytelling techniques and principles in their professional and personal communication by learning to translate compelling images into desired action.


What they say about Diane:

Diane, I attended your opening session at the AALNC conference. The presentation was excellent!!!! Very upbeat and motivating. Quite often you go to a conference and the first speakers in the morning do not have the power to open your eyes, keep you focused, and bring you beyond the need for the first, second, and third cups of coffee. You have a gift that can capture someone's attention and keep it throughout the entire presentation.
Attendee - American Association Legal Nurse Consultants Annual Conference

Hi Diane! I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your presentation last night. You did a wonderful job and I liked seeing our group so engaged with your program. As a professional facilitator for corporate and public training programs- my mind was really spinning as to how your techniques might improve my presentations. Let’s meet downstream and talk further.”
Director of Client Relations, San Diego-based Corporate Training

Diane - I have received many, many e-mails today saying what a wonderful time they had at the Holiday Event and enjoyed your presentation immensely! Several of us walked out and stayed in the parking lot talking, just reflecting on your message. You reached many hearts and minds and made people think. The exercises brought in the human element. It was really good!
