Fiona’s whole working life has been dedicated to either being a performer or to enabling others to improve their performance and communication skills. She holds a strong belief in your inherent right to be noticed and listened to, as she understands the challenges and limitations that arise when you aren’t listened to, either at work or in life.
Since 2005, she has worked as a qualified executive and performance coach, as well as a speaking skills trainer, working with young people and adults. Her expertise is enriched by her previous career paths.
As a trained actor, she honed her skills in confident performance, voice production, breath work and understanding motivation and interpreting text. This experience taught her the power of owning the stage and captivating an audience.
As a professional fundraiser, she learnt how to effectively pitch ideas and influence individuals, enabling her to raise substantial funds and support for important causes. Now as a confidence and speaking skills expert, she helps the young by running workshops and competitions in public speaking and debating so that they can go out into the world able to speak confidently in public. This is a skill not currently prioritised in schools and holds students back from achieving their potential.
