Dianne Steller Accountant
Dianne Steller is an active accountant in Melbourne, with a passion for the arts. With extensive experience in the artistic sector, she offers a range of services – from helping you get on your feet as a young musician, to taking your business to the next level.
Since being a passionate but untalented cellist in secondary school, Dianne Steller MIPA BComm has had a great love of the arts. This love culminated in being employed at the Victorian Arts Centre as the Deputy Finance Manager, and subsequently as the Finance Manager. Dianne has been a keen audience member of many operas, ballets and musicals, as well as plays and popular music concerts. As an accountant, Dianne is passionate about supporting young musicians in establishing their careers. As an accountant in public practice, she has seen many talented people, who excel in their chosen field whether it be music or another industry, fail to succeed due to their lack of business knowledge – missing the skills to keep their financial records in order, or get paid what they are owed.
Dianne’s goal is to encourage young musicians to put time and effort into establishing good financial habits at the beginning of their career, in order to flourish at what they do best. Currently, Dianne is a Business Services Manager at Colville Williams & Co Pty Ltd, offering tax and accounting services to small businesses and individuals.
