What I Like to talk About

Clarity of Course®: Grow Your Business Without Selling
You can’t sell anything to anyone – so stop trying! Sales isn’t about selling; it’s about discovery, connecting, and solutions. Let’s explore some hard truths about sales, the value of knowing your ideal client, why process and monitoring matter.

Clarity of Course®: Make An Impact in 30 Second
Abandon the ‘pitch’ and the ‘commercial.’ Your 30 seconds is the opportunity to start a conversation, not to sell something. Unfortunately, most 30 second commercials go unheard – even yours! It doesn’t have to be that way, so let’s explore a better way to use your 30 seconds.

Clarity of Course®: Effective Business Planning (Roadmapping for Success)
The best way to reach your business goals is not only knowing what they are; i’s having a plan to achieve them. We’ll explore vision, action steps and tracking + communication strategies.

Clarity of Course®: Leadership That Gets Results
Leadership isn’t management. It isn’t micro, or hands-off. It IS about respect,
expectations, consequences, and communication. Know where you’re going and how others can help you get there. Then tell them, support them, and let them get to it.

Clarity of Course®: It’s The Experience That Matters
‘Customer service’ is misleading. What really matters is the experience customers have with your organization. From first contact to last, how do prospects, customers, employees, and colleagues feel about your company? Understand why it matters and create a strategy to ensure every experience is a good one.

Clarity of Course®: Networking That Drives Business
Networking is connecting, not selling. The best networkers do more listening than
speaking. 30 seconds starts a conversation – and it’s really 30 seconds or less! Let’s talk about how to really use networking for business growth.

Clarity of Course®: The Power of You
Owning the value you bring to your product or service and market your differentiators. The idea is to identify what it is about YOU that makes the difference.

“We were very fortunate to have Diane present her "Lemonade Stand Sales Strategies" to a packed house at our AultCare Quick Connect Luncheon series. In a single word, Diane was SUPERFANTASTIC! She presented common-sense, useful and informative business sales growth tips in a humorous and insightful manner. I have received glowing compliments on her presentation from many of my guests. Well done, Diane!”


"I had the pleasure of attending Diane Helbig's Keynote speaking engagement at the EmpowHER Conference. Diane's presentation was titled 'What if you fly?' and right from the beginning, she had the audience of 200 ladies mesmerized. Her discussion of 'taking that leap' was presented in such a way, that I think if there was a cliff in front of us, we ALL would have jumped! She was motivating, uplifting, and gave us all the power to feel as though we could do anything--as long as we were thoughtful and had a plan. I could have listened to her for hours as she invoked humor and real life experience into her talk as well. Diane's presentation pertained to every woman in the whole room--I am sure at some time or another, we all have wondered about making a change in our lives, no matter what size. I am sincerely happy I attended the empowHER event and Diane Helbig was the Keynote 'Kick-Off' Speaker!"



“Diane provided the keynote for our annual sales meeting and knocked it out of the park. She provided our team with an energetic and action oriented look at sales in the 21st century. She reinforced the idea of solution based sales, something we expect of our team. Everyone enjoyed Diane’s outlook and presentation style.”
