I’ve been successfully providing public speaking services and leading presentations for over 20 years. From conferences to workshops, specialized training courses, public and private events, and so much more. I truly love connecting with people and leading conversations that can potentially shift the way we think, and change the way we act.
When I’m in my element, my passion and enthusiasm have the power to rally the masses. I bring my signature style, energy and empowerment to every speaking engagement I attend. I can help you boost engagement, create a community of inclusion, bolster social change, and examine and apply the principles of yoga and mindfulness in the way that makes sense for you.

“Dianne’s presence in the room was huge…she was dynamic, engaging with the audience and powerful. She was vulnerable as she shared pieces of herself with us, which helped create connection. Her authentic story telling brought us all in and the activities she had us participate in, brought us all closer together as well”
~ J.Burrell TRIBE Womans Entrepreneur Group
“We were thrilled to get Dianne Bondy as the keynote speaker for the 2015 Race and Yoga Conference. She moved the audience with the story of how she embraced yoga, and came to know herself as a phenomenal woman in the process. What she recounted was specific to her experience, but like every great storyteller, she delivered it in a way that resonated with everyone in attendance.”

Dianne’s understanding of justice, discrimination, and societal norms was inspiring to all of us. Finally, she shared that developing a healthy body image is a process mindfulness and acceptance of self. Dianne was a gift that has moved all of us to explore our own true selves.”

Dianne was an absolute joy to work with. She spoke with passion, power and an authenticity that really moved our audience and left a lasting impression on our staff. Dianne speaks to larger themes of self-acceptance, self-care and healing as well as challenging the status quo, speaking out against systems of oppression and taking risks. Dianne is truly a change-maker and I think everyone who has the chance to hear her speak will be better for it. Do whatever you can do to bring Dianne Bondy to your community!
