Here is what some our clients* have to say about their experience with Moving Speaker, business owner Dyane Neiman.

*Due to confidentiality agreements with our coaching clients, some names have been withheld.


Dyane helped us write a true and emotional story, and guided me on how to tell it. Using my voice, my body, my movements, my face, owning the stage, getting the audience to fall in love with our project… Dyane’s coaching sessions were definitely the best decision we ever made. I learned a lot, not only for this particular pitch, but for my job and my life.
— Sofia Nürnberger, GIZ & Winning Pitch at the GIZ Innovation Fund 2018/19 from over 100 applicants; May 2019

I had been always fascinated with storytelling and when I was selected as a finalist for the Berlin Falling Walls Lab 2016, I took this as an outstanding opportunity to explore the field with Dyane.

Dyane is a great professional, but first of all she is an artist! She is creative, passionate, brilliant and very sensitive. Her great communicational skills and her original perspectives on things, made the difference. I am very happy with the work we did together. Thanks Dyane, you rock!"

Antonella Radicchi, speaker at the Falling Walls Lab, November 8, 2016

You're email made my day. It was fun collaborating with you. Without a doubt you helped us all remember that inside our scientific personas there is another persona - us.

Norm M.,  Scientist, Roche Innovation Center Basel, September 20, 2017 

It was great working with you, and all the speeches we heard today were simply wonderful! Great work :)

Christopher C., Researcher, Roche Innovation Center Basel, September 20, 2017 

I am the one to THANK YOU for all the learning and inputs shared with us in the past weeks. It was a lot of fun and overall a very pleasant and enjoyable experience! The "right people" in the end was just the *right thing* to say and this was your great suggestion Dyane! Thank you!

Marina B; award-winning leader; Roche Innovation Center Basel Switzerland, September 20, 2017

Many thanks for your precious feedback and YES, we are going for gold !!! I incorporated most of the changes you proposed. I really would like to thank you very much. Your help in writing the talk was great, it brought a lot of ideas and raised my self-confidence to make it even greater !!! I cross my fingers for next week (award ceremony) and hope I will have the opportunity to work with you in the future.

Christophe G., manager at Roche Innovation Center Basel, Switzerland; June 15, 2106

Thank you for all the support and suggestions you did. I learnt a lot from you and this will help me in the future for other presentations. It was a great experience for me ...

Dr. Stefan S, Clinical Pharmacologist, Roche Innovation Center Basel, Switzerland; September 22, 2017

Dyane's coaching style was warm, encouraging and consistently focused the outcomes that I wanted to achieve. I bounced around on topics a bit and she was able to not only track with me, but find the common threads, which provided me with the opportunity to have some important insights. She also provided me with a tool (a centering exercise) to help me approach a particularly difficult situation with more ease and less defensiveness. Dyane is a generous, insightful and attuned coach who provided me with just the right mix of support, guidance and encouragement.

I want to thank you for your excellent coaching - hands down the best I have received through ReciproCoach! ...

Sharon P., coach, human resources professional, California, USA, Jun 25, 2016

It (the keynote speech) was great!! I received a standing ovation!! Thanks a lot for everything!!
Dr. Andrea H., president of an international health organization, May 10, 2016

Oh my god. I nailed it.
People lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvved me. (Yeah, with that many v's).
All thanks to you. I'd be nothing and crying in a dumpster without you.

It really means a lot, all the help you have done all these days. You're the best coach there is. Side note, I have been invited to speak in another conference in Romania, been offered a business opportunity and I have advised 3 businesses in the last 2 hours after my speech. Apart from me trying to get away from the crowd that kept asking me questions. I know that it was all you, your structures and your coaching ...Hearty smiles.

Ryan Sivan, entrepreuner, business speaker; November 4, 2015

...Thank you for an incredible year! You've taught me that leadership is not about fitting into norms, but about challenging them. You've shown me how much can be achieved through bursts of creativity and lots of pure enthusiasm! It's been a great year. Thank you.

Khushi Pasquale, Award-winning public speaker, Toastmasters Central Berlin founder

Client for International Conference Keynote Speech, Information Technology expert

... Your feedback helped me to:

  • optimize the structure and throw out unnecessary things, as you kept asking: why do you have it here?

  • get more “life” in the talk

  • add some powerful details

  • bring more humor to the talk

  • used some of your previous tips and did voice exercises before the talk

Diana C., coaching client; January 29, 2015

Dyane is a warm, supportive, excellent coach. She is structured and organized while also being extremely skilled at 'dancing' with the client so they can explore topics on their own terms. In each of my coaching sessions with Dyane, I came away with more clarity and direction. I also experience an increase in creativity and momentum after our coaching together. Dyane is a very skillful coach and I highly recommend her!

Thank you so much for everything Dyane!  You have done a brilliant job at Dalia!
— Kostas Christidis, PhD Senior Data Engineer, Dalia Research GmbH; October 2019

The training truly gave me the understanding that there are systematic ways to train the mind to be more comfortable with the idea of talking in front of people. There are methods that work, and given a good instructor (which was the case), I was able to tell a story in public!
— Ahmed T. Abdelfattah, Dalia Research GmbH; October 2019

Dyane’ s training gave me the power to share a personal story I would never have thought of sharing.

In addition, the teaching staff had the opportunity to learn from Dyane’s techniques with the students as well. I only received the most positive feedback from students, their parents and the faculty.
