Welcome and Opening Keynote: Bring Your A-Game to Your End Game

Diane Allen was a well sought-after violin teacher for 28 years and was the Concertmaster of the Central Oregon Symphony for 15 years. Diane is the author of Sixteen Music Workbooks and had numerous successes in the performing arts which requires nerves of steel. Anyone that has ever made it to her level can tell you, it’s no walk in the park. A sensitive artist, the stiff competition was quite the blow to Diane’s morale and something that she struggled with for Ten Years. The determination, consistency, and perseverance it takes to overcome and win, is where Diane discovered her true passion and purpose for helping others to overcome their own obstacles.

In 2019 TEDxNaperville chose Diane to deliver a talk where she shared her proprietary process making it possible for people to personally and professionally perform at their best, anytime, anyplace, no matter how high the pressure. Because her topic is fitting during the most challenging of times, her talk has since been elevated to the main TED platform. Diane works with thousands of people around the world to break through their performance gaps and unleash their potential. Through poignant storytelling, music, imagery, neuroscience, and specific steps, this experiential multi-sensory talk leaves people knowing how to access a powerful thought process that increases learning speed, creativity, and makes outstanding performance readily available.

Diane shares her simple three-step system for people to first access their flow state and then apply it to unleash their potential.
