WHO IS DIANA?
Hello and welcome! I’m Diana YK Chan, Founder of My Marketability. I love motivational speaking and inspiring people to achieve greatness, fulfillment and success. As a Career Coach and Public Speaker, I help multi-passionate career changers and driven job seekers find a meaningful career and differentiate as top talent to get the job they want faster.
With over a decade of public speaking experience, I’ve delivered hundreds of keynotes, seminars, and workshops to thousands of people from all walks of life: students, business professionals, educators, entrepreneurs – you name it! It doesn’t matter how small the group or how big the crowd is, I speak for their benefit, so I never hold back!
My speaking style is interactive, informative and inspiring. I ask powerful questions, provide relevant trends and stats, use acronyms and frameworks to make learning fun, easy and memorable. I also incorporate simple and meaningful exercises to engage the audience.
WHY HIRE DIANA TO SPEAK?
Having the extensive experience of working in training & marketing at TELUS, consulting at Accenture, and as a Recruiter at Ivey Business School and Google, I use what I learned to create the frameworks, concepts, and tactics I use to teach my audience what it takes to take over the job market.
Unique and Holistic Perspective
I’ve screened thousands of resumes, done thousands of interviews, and worked with job seekers from 20+ different industries and professions with their own unique challenges and situations. I know what employers are always looking for in a candidate, and from there, I know what job seekers need to do to stand out as an ideal candidate.
Offer Proven Strategies and Practical Advice
The job market never stays the same – trends always change, so I make a point to keep myself up to date with the latest job search trends and hiring needs. I make sure my audiences hear relevant advice they can apply almost immediately after my speaking engagements!
High Impact and High Engagement
I aim to inspire greatness and encourage people to take bold actions with their careers. I strive to convey authenticity, passion, and empowerment in myself for my audience to feel it for themselves. I won’t have you just sitting there listening to me, I’ll be pushing you to engage, actively participate, and apply everything you’ll learn in real life!
As a Career Coach, I’ve helped hundreds of people find a meaningful career and get the job they want at top companies in record time. Being part of my audience gives you access to that advantage!

Having heard Diana speak at other events, I hired Diana to speak about Personal Branding as part of the PEO Lake Ontario Chapter Career Development Seminar Series. Diana is an engaging and dynamic speaker, whose wisdom and advice prompted our attendees to more deeply contemplate their own personal brand to find professional satisfaction and personal happiness. The feedback from her seminar was very positive and I am pleased to bring Diana back for another session later this year. I highly recommend Diana and my chapter plans to hire her for other engagements in the future.
Senior Consultant at Deloitte
Incredibly articulate, Diana administered a very successful, encapsulating, and out-of-the box motivational speech, making her a very refreshing speaker. I had the privilege of hearing Diana speak at WIN’s (Women in NAAAP) event on personal branding. Diana’s charisma and discipline was evident throughout her presentation, which provided an inspirational flare for all in attendance. So much so, that the event’s question period was primarily centered on Diana offering the crowd additional insights and suggestions. I would without doubt request Diana to provide her services both as a life coach and as a speaker at future networking events.
Environmental at TD
Diana is a proven world-class connector who has inspired and helped so many young professionals to discover their passions and develop their personal brands. It was our privilege to have Diana to speak with over 150 enthusiastic and young U of T Engineering students at You’re Next Launchpad events. Her personal charisma injected tremendous energy into our audience. She interacted with our students to teach them how to “Brand Your Brain with Confidence” and “Break the Engineer Stereotype” to “Market Yourself from Awkward to Awesome”. Being an event organizer, I must say that Diana is one of the most inspiring and energetic speakers you can ever find in North America. On the other hand, being a student, I benefited greatly from Diana’s strategies in professional development.
Student at University of Toronto
I had the pleasure to work with Diana as a guest speaker at Nspire’s Discovery Series “Network to Get Work-Connecting from Awkward to Awesome” at Western University. Her charisma and insightful presentation educated over 150+ students at the campus on personal branding and networking.
From the primary chats to final logistics, Diana’s professionalism ensured it be a process, a prime contributor to the success of the event. Furthermore, I was able to have many key take-aways from her speech from taking the first steps to following up when networking. A truly inspirational speech!
Diana was also very generous in creating personalized cards and providing complimentary career coaching sessions for raffle winners at the event. Thanks for the support for Nspire!
Student at Western University
As a workshop facilitator, Diana exudes power, presence, and warmth. The consistency of her own brand reinforces her ideas so I could actually see how to apply them in real life. Beyond that, Diana has a knack for making her points come alive through analogies, which made it easy to remember the key message even weeks after the presentation. I would jump at the opportunity to see her speak again! If you want someone who speaks with conviction and sincerity, I highly recommend that you choose Diana.
Student at Western University
When you speak to Diana, you are always left with a feeling that you are bound for better things. I have heard Diana speak on two different occasions for two completely different organizations. What struck me about Diana is how humble she is for someone so accomplished. While her message is always consistent, her delivery is tailored for the audience. In addition to being humble and eloquent, she is very knowledgeable on the topic she presents on and always leaves you inspired after hearing her. I would definitely invite Diana to be involved in other events when the opportunity arises.
Training & Development Associate, George Brown College
Diana is a dynamic, empathetic and informed speaker whose passion for helping others find their own sweet spot is contagious. I have known her for many years and have seen her passion grow during this time. Just recently, she spoke at a networking forum for small-business entrepreneurs that I facilitate. The group not only commended her for her great insights about promoting their businesses online (e.g., on LinkedIn), but they unanimously agreed her presentation was the highlight of the meeting. I would recommend Diana for anyone looking for help promoting their business or promoting themselves in a job search.
