What you say and, more importantly, how you say it is key to people’s perception of your business and of you as a leader. As a passionate communications coach Fiona will challenge and encourage you to deliver a performance you didn’t know you had in you.

Fiona, an award winning media professional, began her coaching career after many years as a producer and manager at the BBC and in the independent sector. She’s since found herself training people in an amazing mix of locations – from the back of speed boats to a shoot with the Sugarbabes – and in a range of situations – from helping authors handle a political media storm to preparing CEOs and board directors to deliver/deliver high profile strategy speeches with confidence and conviction.

Equally at home in business, politics and sport, Fiona is an innovative trainer, working with many top executives and businesses, transforming the way they communicate both internally and externally. She is a passionate believer in presenting with authenticity, authority and energy and that the credibility and impact of your message is as much about how you communicate, as it is about the power of your content.

When not coaching our current and future leaders, Fiona can usually be found on a boat, a volleyball court or half way up Everest.


“Fiona provided valuable insight into ways we could tell our story more effectively in words and pictures, as well as helping those of us who were facilitating discussion sessions. I have given thousands of speeches over the years, and Fiona provided real guidance on how we could be more effective.
The training was definitely value-added.”
Ed Nusbaum, Global CEO, Grant Thornton International
“Fiona uses her wealth of experience to put you at ease in front of a camera, which is crucial for anyone venturing into the world of live TV interviews. She manages to make learning the ropes a fun experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fiona to anyone who wants to feel confident in the
environment of a TV or radio studio.”
Gordon Rayner, Telegraph Media Group
“I think, more than just the presenting, it gave me an insight into leadership
and where I need to grow and how I need to hold myself. Invaluable.”
