We give new upper bounds for the diameters of finite groups arising as images of certain profinite groups, including p-adic analytic groups and the Nottingham group. Our bounds do not depend on a choice of generating set. Our method exploits the commutator structure of the profinite groups we study, in a manner reminiscent of the Solovay-Kitaev procedure from quantum computation.
