Hello, I’m Diane Foy, and I help musicians, actors, and dancers cultivate authentic connections with audiences and industry gatekeepers so that they can build a thriving career in the arts, without feeling overwhelmed or doubting themselves. If you want to stop letting fear and a lack of knowledge hold you back, I can empower you with confidence and profile building strategies to propel you to the next level.
In my 15 years’ in public relations, I have secured international media coverage for hundreds of artists and performers. Although I have represented celebrities, I feel the most accomplished helping independent artists on their journey. After seeing many of my PR clients struggle to build a career in the arts, I was inspired to become a certified coach.
As creative artists, you have the power to change lives with your talent, my purpose is to educate, motivate and empower you to thrive in order to ensure that the world gets to experience that power.
Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive! is a blog and podcast for musicians, actors and dancers by entertainment publicist and creativity coach Diane Foy.
