"Diane Howard has insight and wisdom. She uses her years of experience in Performance, Communication, and Media Studies and academic prowess to help us at www.movieguide.org and to help many others to redeem the culture. Of all the students who took the HOW TO SUCCEED IN HOLLYWOOD (WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SOUL) course, Diane has the most incredible ability to grasp and untilize the information to help build a civil society. Diane is a blessing and a friend."
Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher

"Diane has been the consumate professional since starting to work with her this past year. I work not only with talent but also with films and TV shows as well as major Hollywood events and Diane gives her 110% to everything she is committed to. This is rather important in an industry that lacks committment, trust and integrity."
