I’ve been very fortunate to work with many, many committed, hard-working and inspirational people. Here’s what a few of them say about me:
I hired Diana Wolfe to assist with publicity for an album launch for my string trio Bowlines. She gave clear, timely, professional advice on publicity strategy, media release, reviews and social media. Recently as a board member for The Boite, I saw the impressive work she did in promoting the large Millennium Chorus event, at The Plenary, including interviews on ABC Radio National (The Drawing Room with Patricia Karvelas) and ABC 774 Melbourne with Clare Bowditch and 40 members of the Millennium Chorus in the studio.
“Excellent to work with and great results, highly recommend.”—Jessie Lloyd, musician, performer, producer & creative entrepreneur
“An absolute pleasure to work with Diana on The Usefulness of Art—she took time to get to know the project and helped represent it exactly as I imagined. And she got results!”—Adam Simmons, musician, teacher, composer, creative director
“Diana and I collaborated on many media and communications projects during our time together working in the homelessness and housing sector, most notably the Call This A Home? Campaign for safe rooming houses, which succeeded with Premier Brumby announcing a comprehensive reform plan for the Victorian rooming house sector.
“Diana is one of the hardest working and most passionate and creative communications people I know. She understands what journalists need and want from a story and has a way of delivering it in a way that serves her client’s objectives equally.
“The other noteworthy quality in Diana’s approach is the strong role that values, ethics and integrity take. She would never compromise the safety or wellbeing of ‘talent’ just to get the story. She ensures preparation and support to those doing media work and this results in empowering experiences and great stories, which in our line of work is the goal.”—Daniel Scoullar, former Communications Manager, HomeGround Services (now Launch Housing) and director, Social Change Projects
“Diana Wolfe completed an extensive campaign for our BBQ to Broken Hill Music and Documentary Tour and the Pozible campaign to help get us there. She secured interviews and articles from Melbourne to Broken Hill with coverage on radio, in print / online and on TV, including live-to-air studio interviews on ABC Radio 774 Melbourne, ABC Goulburn Murray and ABC Radio Broken Hill and regional newspapers including the Barrier Daily Truth, Broken Hill, which ran two stories including photos. With nine live-to-air interviews, her support was also instrumental in reaching our Pozible campaign target which was integral to the success of the whole tour. More than this Diana provided personal support and advice throughout the tour and in the lead up, on how best to target social media and maximise on PR opportunities and media relationships. With constant communication and encouragement and a real personal touch, I feel Diana went over and above the call of duty and would not hesitate to recommend Wolfe Words for any media campaign.”—Marisa Quigley, singer/songwriter
“Diana is a joy to work with: professional, dependable, trustworthy, personable, goes the extra mile and obtains incredible results! As my publicist for the Australian performances of my show, she produced wonderful press releases and media backgrounders, and landed 5 live to air radio interviews for me on prominent and important shows, plus newspaper coverage ! She gave very generously of her time and expertise – assisting me as an international visiting artist. She was 100 % reliable and an absolute Gift to me. She carries my highest recommendation.”—Rita Costanzi, International Harp Soloist and Actor, one-woman show, A Score To Settle
“As producers for The Songs They Sang we would like to highly recommend Diana Wolfe. We found Diana to be highly professional, incredibly enthusiastic, personable and very thorough in her work.”—Anna Monea & Amadeo Marquez-Perez, Producers
“I had the pleasure of working with Diana in 2012 on a couple of key communication projects for Hanover. Her tenacity and determination to get a great outcome ensured our 2012 Annual Report is something we’re very proud of. Her writing skills are second to none and she is skilled at managing a myriad of stakeholders to meet very tight timeframes. I truly appreciated her genuine compassion for people experiencing homelessness, her supportive working style and the wealth of knowledge and experience she brought to our work. She’s a skilled operator and I’d work with her again in a heartbeat!”—Fin Bird, former Communications and Fundraising Manager, Hanover Welfare Services (now Launch Housing)
“Diana has assisted StreetSmart in a pro-bono capacity, bringing her expert knowledge of PR and communications to help us build our community campaign. Diana was generous with her time, skills and advice and gained some excellent media coverage for our work and events.”—Adam Robinson, CEO, StreetSmart Australia
