About The Hosts


Cath Vincent

Cath spent over 20 years as a business consultant in change management before she emigrated to New Zealand and launched a brand new career as a motivational speaker. In a rapid time, she won the National Speakers Association Brightstar award, was invited to speak on Leadership at Tedx and she even went on to launch her own motivational television show. The Cath Vincent Show, now in its 4th season, airs on Sky TV.

Her latest Big Hairy Audacious Goal was the renovation of a distressed warehouse and former Meth Lab into a motivational hub, Studio 38. The studio is fast becoming Auckland’s Most Inspiring Venue for Creative and Business Endeavour.


Diana Thomson

Diana started off as a nervous public speaker, hands shaking, sweating and losing her place. Wanting to improve her stage presence, she practiced, read books, and learnt  and sought advice from experienced speakers. After taking private coaching from Presentations Limited NZ and NBO Group Singapore, she achieved her Toastmasters International Competent Communicator and Leadership qualification in 2013 and within 12 months of this she landed a job as a workshop presenter.

In guiding others through their journey with public speaking, she helps people discover and develop the speaking skills they already possess through Speech Marks, a programme she developed to mentor business women and entrepreneurs.



"I did not really believe that I would ever be able to do a full presentation without notes, but I now see that with practice and fine tuning it is possible. Now I am feeling comfortable in front of a group with less nerves -  I would have found that very stressful in the past if I had not had the practice with you at She Says So. I wanted to share this with you, to say thank you as I am learning so much from you both and the other women in the group.  I really appreciate your instruction and encouragement."
