Dian Griesel

I’m Dian Griesel also known as @SilverDisobedience to millions. I wear a lot of hats and wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m a perception analyst, best-selling author, creative influencer, founder & president of Dian Griesel Int'l. (DGI) and Silver Disobedience Inc. I’m also represented by Wilhelmina Models New York (Direct) and Wilhelmina Model Miami (Icons), and have appeared in worldwide campaigns for major brands as both a model and a creative. For 25 years and counting, my company DGI has advised C-suite management on maximum impact messaging and content within FDA, FTC, SEC, DoD and other regulated environments. Named a Top Influencer of the 50+ demographic by AARP, companies also rely on me and my sister company Silver Disobedience for sharing intuitive perceptions regarding pending campaigns and also for my insights into the wants, needs, likes and dislikes of the Gen X, Boomer & Greatest populations. A certified clinical hypnotherapist (Union 472), member of the American Counseling Association and lifetime member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapists, I’ve honed a keen understanding of how written, verbal, visual and body language communication trigger opinions, actions and response. I’m known for offering thoughtful insights; listening closely and imparting candid advice regarding difficult topics and challenging situations; as well as for my willingness to create connections to my broad, well-established network of friends and business relationships. As a passionate writer, my daily blog engages with millions of people every week via the SilverDisobedience.Rocks website and branded social media pages. My books include The Silver Disobedience Playbook: 365 Inspirations for Living and Loving Agelessly; ENGAGE: Smart Ideas to Get More Media Coverage, Build Your Influence and Grow Your Business; FUNDaMentals: The Corporate Guide to Cultivating Mindshare; Uncapped: A Critically Important Workbook for Officers of Public Companies; as well as the TurboCharged® Peak Performance health book series of books, which I co-wrote with my brother.
