What Clients Say

I’ve worked with Groundswell for over a decade. From our first show together, Di and her team became part of our conference family. Groundswell has been an invaluable part of our show’s success as we’ve grown from 200 to 2,000 attendees.
Holly Ross, Executive Director at NTEN
Diana assisted me with Apple’s WWDC conference. She was always on top of her assignments, creative in her solutions and always a pleasure and a comfort to have on my team. I highly recommend Diana for any event project!
Neil Kent, Apple Computer
If you’re launching or reinvigorating the marketing programs for your company, one of the first calls you should make is to Diana and team at Groundswell. Diana and team not only did a superb job creating our corporate identity from the ground up, but they did it exceptionally fast, and more or less exactly right the first time. Remarkably talented and knowledgeable team, and they’ll ask the questions you didn’t think to ask but should.
Jeremy Stieglitz, VP Marketing, Redwood Systems
Diana is one of the most creative and strategic marketers I have had the pleasure to work with. Her unique experience and level of unstoppability produces integrated results that always meet or exceed expectations. On projects large and small, she and her team of experts always deliver outstanding results. Do yourself a favor – hire Groundswell Marketing for your next marketing project.
Ernest Berghof, Customer Experience, Yahoo!
As a green business owner who also works in the marketing field I was very impressed by Diana’s efficiency and expertise. She helped a local nonprofit go from little league to major league in just a few short months. If you need help with a marketing campaign you owe it to yourself to talk with Diana!
Alex Kahl, Owner, Kahl Consultants
What I’m looking for is chemistry. I want great marketing AND I want a team that’s creative and can have fun at the same time. Groundswell is that team.
Andrew Blaisdell, Strategic Marketing Director, Settlenet Inc.
So How Much Did Drupalcon San Francisco Rock? A LOT! #3 Groundswell Marketing. Head over heels this conference rocked because they hired a first class event management marketing firm help us through all the nuances. While many of us participate in conferences all year round, none of us are experts, and the people at Groundswell did an AWESOME job supporting us the whole way.
