Diana Baldi, Innovative Problem-Solver
I help audit program managers develop risk-based auditors and engage leadership through ISO QEHS training and mentoring.
We make ISO standards relevant to your operations with a bit of humor.
Audit program managers struggle to resource and develop risk-based auditors and engage leadership, yet internal auditing is a mandatory requirement for achieving and maintaining your ISO certification.
Your ineffective auditors waste precious resources, disrupt operations, create chaos and undermine overall credibility.
Our auditor training and mentoring services embed a solid understanding of ISO requirements that is tailored to your business needs.
We polish essential skills for effective risk-based audit planning, completion, and writing engaging reports.
You will have a team of respected, skilled internal auditors who produce insightful reports that ignite leadership and inspire meaningful improvements.
When you implement thoughtful, risk-based internal audit programs, the audit results become an essential guide that advances the organization toward excellence, each auditor thrives, and the ISO management system is duly respected.
To Diana, Management Systems are second nature. Like breathing.

“It is rare that you come across a person like Diana that is so knowledgeable, dynamic, high energy, engaging, tenacious and can collaborate at the level that she does while always driving for a win-win outcome.”
A Unique Combination
Diana has a unique combination of direct experience in the ISO 14001 (environmental), ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 45001 (health and safety), ISO/IEC 17025 (testing and calibration laboratories) and the Baldridge Framework for Excellence. She has worked with a wide variety of sectors including manufacturing, service, non-profit, testing laboratories, and government.
Passion and Expertise
Diana's systems journey started when she first saw clean air and water in Kentucky and understood how polluted her Ohio Valley hometown was. That experience sparked a degree in Environmental Science and 14 years of service at the USEPA Region III. Her work led to extensive knowledge of contract management, assessing laboratories and auditing engineering firms.
As an expert voice in her field, Diana is shifting to mentoring individuals. Seeing comprehension bubble up in her student's eyes is addictive to her. Seeing the energy and improvements after candid audit feedback provided massive passion to drive her further in teaching.
