Nowadays personal identities are challenged by international change both economic and financial, so people and communities have to adapt themselves. A driving aim for us all is to retain cultural identity while adopting globalisation.

Diane seeks to help you to manage this change by understanding your community needs as well as recognising sensitivities and interpreting controversial issues.

Ideas are translated into practical reality by managing the process of change. This requires collaboration, sharing knowledge and working with governments and communities to steer their appropriate paths.
