Tara takes her work seriously, but doesn't take herself too seriously. This means her presentation style and messages are motivating yet in a laid back, true Australian style.



Tara Diversi delivered twelve monthly workshops to our employees, which were well attended by staff. The firm received significant positive feedback from sessions, with the majority of staff members reporting permanent changes in many aspects of their lives brought on by their new found knowledge of nutrition, fitness and self awareness.
- Michael Keogh, Partner, Miller Harris Lawyers.

Tara custom-made her program to suit our business needs and the typical scenarios that our field workers face. The feedback from the session was very positive. Tara spoke very well and responded to a wide range of questions from the audience. Many of the staff commented at the end of the day that they gained plenty of useful information from her session. I have no hesitation in recommending Tara.
- Jamie Hogan, Workplace Trainer, Roadtek Asset Service North

Excellent presentation - your expertise is evident and you had a nice balance between formality and informality. One improvement would be for the conference organisers to put you down for two consecutive sessions.
- Irene Burow, Burow & Associates, Road to Success Conference

Tara's presentation on recession proofing your HR strategies - rewarding and recruiting staff - gave us all food for thought at the DAA NSW Branch Sydney Conference. Her session was well received with over 90% rating the presentation and content of her presentation as very good or excellent.
- Lisa Yates, DAA NSW Branch CE Subcommittee.

Tara's topic "If only fish had knees - nutrition and inflammation' was very informative, concise and kept everyone's attention. The medical delegates certainly managed to generate plenty of discussion in question time and you successfully managed these questions and answered them all. All feedback regarding your session that the association has received has been very positive and we look forward to further talks by you in the future.
- Dr Jan Kencian, Far North Queensland Lady Doctors Association.
