Dianah is a registered Psychologist and Talent specialist with a passion for merging psychology with compelling and impactful employee experiences. This passion has led Dianah to pursue a unique career in learning and talent. 

Having previously worked with companies across a broad range of people strategy and solutions, she found most missed the mark in achieving meaningful behavioural change and outcomes. 

Dianah finally found her calling when she joined a Learning & Digital Engagement Centre of Excellence at EY in London, UK. Here she worked with companies around the world to embed new learning strategies, programs and technology that transformed traditional ways of learning. Dianah now works as the Global Head of Leadership, Learning & Development  for Canva establishing Canva’s first ever learning & development function, Canva University.
