Accolades from previous speaking engagements

  • What can I say? By far the best MC I’ve ever worked with.  Di took our conference to the next level!  She was dynamic, articulate and captivated the entire audience with her compassion and professionalism. Di went above and beyond in preparing for our conference and her energetic contribution on site led to its success and we can’t wait to welcome her back for the next one! Di you are incredible!”      

    Jacqueline Murkins. National Events & Partnerships Manager, Palliative Care Australia Limited

  • “Thank you so much for recommending Di Darmody to MC the official WAFES Conference opening. Di was an absolute pleasure to work with – she was professional and friendly and flexible. She was incredibly thorough in her research and this, along with her inimitable style, resulted in really productive sessions (which we expected would be very challenging and fraught with issues). I would not hesitate to book Di again, she was the perfect fit.”

    Lauren Gardiner, Events Coordinator, WAFES.
