“It was at the 2012 International Conference of Investigative Associations (ICIA) conference in San Antonio, Texas that I attended the eight hour paid seminar that Ms. Garren taught. This seminar was packed with valuable information that I had never heard before, and I needed to take my business to the next level. It was money well spent! If you ever have the opportunity to attend Ms. Garren’s eight hour seminar, I highly recommend that you do.”

Claude Bookout
Founder/CEO/Chief Investigator
United International Investigations

"Diana Garren spoke at the Texas Association of Licensed Investigator's Annual Conference in 2012, our Spring Conference in 2014, and will be back at our Annual Conference in 2014.  Our members raved about the added value they gained each time.  Diana brings real marketing knowledge and knows the private investigative industry as well as the markets we serve.  Each and every member of your association benefited from her honesty, enthusiasm and knowledge.  I highly recommend Diana Garren as a speaker and her company, True Perceptions, to those wanting to move their businesses to the next level."

    - Carol Tharp, TCI, President-Elect
Texas Association of Licensed Investigators

“Diana’s presentation was enlightening and encouraging...after hearing her speak at a local FALI meeting, we retained her services. Diana has been instrumental in the success of our own business, as our revenues and client list has increased substantially as a direct result of her expertise. This lady knows what she’s doing!”

- Mark Murnan,CLI, CFE / Founder
Complete Legal Investigations, Inc.

 “I met Diana during last year's FALI/FASCO conference in Orlando.  After listening to her presentation which focused on "It’s easier to keep a client, than get one" we hired True Perceptions to conduct a client survey, redesign our logo and branding, website, brochures, etc.  We are now working on the next phase of marketing.  Diana takes a personal interest in her clients.  We have received many compliments on our website and brochures and do not hesitate to recommend True Perceptions.”

Rick Staly, Executive Vice President/MGMR
American Eagle Sentry, LLC


“Diana is a sensational speaker! Her energy and enthusiasm is addictive. No business is too small or too large not to benefit from her practical, yet unique message. Whether the audience is comprised of young and eager entrepreneurs or seasoned business veterans, Diana is able to inspire and motivate. While challenging conventional wisdom and old school dogma, she reveals the essential secrets of developing and growing a thriving business in difficult economic times. I recommend her highly to any organization seeking a speaker that can excite an audience and provide lasting value.”

-Eugene F. Ferraro, CPP, CFE,PCI,CEO/ Founder
Business Controls Inc., Colorado


“Last year I heard the presentation of Diana Garren at the FALI/FASCO conference for the first time.  It was so compelling and educational that I hired her to do the marketing for my new company.  The benefits I have gained from her experience and insight into marketing, websites, and salesmanship of my product have changed everything for the better.  She has the background, expertise, and the patience to work an investigator or new entrepreneur through the procedures necessary for a highly successful and salable business enterprise so that they can avoid the pitfalls of trial and error that so many of us experience along the way.

I chose not to take the time to learn from my own mistakes but to benefit from someone who is already successful in this economy.  To do otherwise is very costly.  I have been more than thrilled by the outstanding results she has brought to my business planning and success."

– Brockman C. Self, MSCJ, CFE, FCI, President
Redline Solution LLC.


“Diana Garren spoke to the National Council of Investigation and Security Services at our Annual Conference in San Diego.  Our members walked away with many new ideas about how to succeed and increase business in the professional investigation field. People were taking notes and asking questions like we seldom see at most seminars. It was perfect for those getting started as well as those in the business for years. Several of us recommended her to the person organizing our state conference in Colorado, and we're pleased she will also speak there.”

- Bob Heales/President
R.A. Heales & Associates, Colorado


 “Diana Garren has truly added a dimension to the private investigation industry.  Her presentation at last year's FALI conference opened the eyes of the FALI members.  In today’s economy, knowing how to market your business and keep ahead of your competition equals moving forward. Diana's proven record of success and keen instincts have become the lifeblood for businesses throughout the country.  Diana's knowledge that each business is unique and her singular focus on your business is what makes her the go to person for business strategy and marketing. I am looking forward to Diana's participation in FALI Conferences for years to come.”

- John Zurenda, President of  FALI, Florida Association of Licensed Investigators
President, Smart Choice Investigations, Florida


“What a marvelous presentation. You helped us elevate the level of our training in a most professional and articulate way. You told us what we needed to know—where we needed to go—and how to get there. I could not have made a better decision than to bring you in for the keynote presentation.”

-Dwight Clinton, President
Clinton Investigations, LLC
2009 Seminar Chair, (IAPI),Indiana


“Diana has the unique ability to get right to the point.  Her presentation allowed me to think of my business from other points-of-view, but just as important, allowed other attendees to open up and provide great feedback of how other private investigators have handled similar situations.  In my business, information sources are critical.  True Perceptions provided a critical component in understanding my business better, and where I needed to improve.”

-Gary S. Brummond, LPI
Rod Blythe Investigations, California


“For those of you attending the NCISS conference next week be sure to check out Diana Garren of True Perceptions presentation on Building a PI business. I have personally been working with her since this past December and highly recommend her. She has been instrumental in assisting me with our business and has helped me make fundamental changes that I truly believe are going to benefit our company. She opened my eyes about the business side of the PI business and has totally transformed the way I operate the business side of our business. She does not use a cookie cutter approach, but instead works along side you in developing your business in the direction you wish to pursue. She is a truly amazing woman and you can most certainly benefit from her presentation.”

- Stacy Flores, B.S., M.S. / Principle
Advantage Investigations, Texas


“As Director of Area 10 of FALI I can testify to the power of Diana Garren’s presentations on the importance of business image having, heard her speak at an area meeting and also as a keynote speaker at our conference last May. Diana has strong connections to the Private Investigations market having acted as a consultant for several investigators. I have no hesitation in recommending Diana and her company True Perceptions to anyone for the future."

- T.E.Walling LPI CPCS,
Area Director Area 10 of
Florida Association of Licensed Investigators


“I had the great opportunity to hear Ms. Garren's presentation at the Florida Association of Licensed Investigators (FALI) in Orlando Florida . The program was well structured and I think hearing it is a must for anyone at any point where your business is taking the next step. She does a fantastic job at getting you to think about the really important stuff.”

-Johnnie Huneycutt CFE, CPP, Sr. Corporate Investigator TECO Energy Inc.
