Diana Williams's Biography

Founder of Fernwood Women’s Health Clubs, Diana Williams is a highly engaging and motivational business speaker. Sharing her passion for business and promoting good health along the way, Diana shares her secrets to following your dreams.


Diana Williams established the first Fernwood Women’s Health Club in Bendigo, Victoria in 1989. Recognising the need for women to have their own special space, Diana’s plan was to create a sanctuary for women to enjoy regular exercise to reach their health, fitness and wellbeing goals.

The first Fernwood franchise opened in 1994, extending today to over 85 clubs throughout Australia, making it the largest organisation of it’s kind in the country with more than 80,000 members, 2,275 employees and an annual turnover in excess of $75 million.

In recognition of the success of Fernwood Women’s Health Clubs, Diana was inducted into the Australian Women’s Hall of Fame in 1999. In 2000, she published her first book titled ‘The Women’s Club’ and in 2001, was honoured by the Department of Industry, Science and Resources for her contribution to Australian business and commerce.

Diana’s accolades continued when she won the Telstra Australian Business Woman of the Year Award in 2005 after previously winning both the Westpac Business owner Award and the overall state award for Victoria , and the coveted BRW Most Successful Private Business Award in 2008.

As a strong advocate for women in business, Diana regularly speaks at various forums, sharing her success story with other women, which she hopes will inspire them to realise their own potential and follow their dreams. As a dedicated promoter that ‘fit, healthy women shine’, Diana attends the club on a regular basis, firmly believing that staying fit and healthy is paramount for every busy person to maintain the energy needed to perform well and lead a balanced life.
