DIANA YK CHAN: Taking Confidence and Career to the Next Level
Diana YK Chan, more known in career and talent development as Diana, is a former top recruiter turned career coach, speaker, and trainer. She is the host of two amazing conversations online: the Dare to Differentiate series and the Amplifying Asian Voices Series.
As a Chinese-Canadian, Diana was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada when she was five years old. She takes pride in being bicultural and often talks about it to empower other people to own their greatness with confidence.
Growing up, she was often told not to rock the boat, stand out, and speak up. She was raised to be humble and told to never speak up as it was considered disrespectful to elders. This led to Diana suppressing her voice and opinions.
However, as someone who aspired to be a speaker and motivate other people, Diana knew she had to make a change. So she started working on projecting her voice, speaking with assertiveness, becoming a better storyteller, and not worrying about what others think.
Now, she is a LinkedIn Top Voice, global speaker, an executive career and confidence coach, and an expert in pivoting, personal branding, networking, and public speaking. With her intensive background and vast experiences, she earnestly spends her time helping individuals make the pivot or achieve advancement in their careers.
Diana is known to many as a passionate, strategic, and energetic individual whose mission is to empower people to shine with confidence and make remarkable impacts. Working with over a thousand clients globally across multiple industries, her proven methodologies have aided individuals to navigate through their careers, accelerate success, and differentiate themselves as top talents.
If she’s not busy hosting live streams or doing one-on-one coaching, you can see her watching the latest Buzz Lightyear movie and eating out with her lovely kids, Aiden and Brendan. She also works closely with her Ripple Virtual Assistant, Jan, in all her endeavors and has been very grateful for her virtual assistant’s contributions.
With a decade of proven track record and successful coaching experience, Diana has received countless positive feedback from her clients, such as “Diana has supported me every step of the way in multiple career transitions. She’s worth every penny and I can’t recommend her enough” and “Diana helped me gain clarity on my strengths and unique value proposition which helped increase my marketability and confidence”.
Indeed, a thousand individuals would agree when you say Diana has taken confidence and career to the next level.
