Diana (Di – pronounced “Dee” in Spanish) has spent the last decade working with businesses of various sizes in the UK and internationally. As account manager and events coordinator for a wealth management fund in Panama, Di travelled extensively organising events and conferences all around Europe and South America before making Glasgow her home in 2008.

After five years at Scotland’s leading restaurant booking site 5pm.co.uk, Di joined a local Chamber of Commerce in Scotland. As front-of-house and relationship manager, she worked for a number of blue-chip clients such as Nespresso, Vodafone, Ladbrokes Coral and Scottish Ballet, and a number of international organisations including the St Andrews Society of New York, the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK and Chambers of Commerce from Pentincton to Miami Beach.

In 2019 Di founded DP Global Ltd, a business development consultancy with international reach, based in Glasgow, Scotland. Di has recently joined the Projects team at Scottish Chambers of Commerce, managing relationships with a number of companies in Scotland and abroad.

Originally from Colombia, Di is passionate about coffee and will surprise us soon with a coffee project she’s currently working on. She is a strong advocate of female empowerment and entrepreneurship and believes anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.

An International Business graduate from Glasgow Caledonian University, Diana is now an ambassador for the university and supports the Alumni team through public speaking and other activities.

Outside of work Di is an avid socialiser and world-traveller and is currently learning Italian for no reason other than her love of fine food and drink. She is also the co-founder of the Glasgow Food Collective, a project connecting Food & Drink lovers in the city (instagram @glasgowfoodcollective).
