"I have worked with Fiona as an Executive Coach during a critical transition period in my career. Her difference lies in her listening skills, ability to focus in on and delve into 'what really matters' and challenge one's thinking and perspectives....all the while ensuring the candidate is in control and making well informed personal decisions. I truly believe I have reached answers to key questions I've long had in my mind far more quickly that I would have without Fiona's help."

Procurement Director, Transport

“Fiona hones in on key issues very quickly, and is brilliant at reflecting back what she has observed... her commercial experience meant she was able to offer invaluable inside knowledge and understanding about how to manage and succeed in a career/business, including how processes work such as pay negotiations, that can seem (to someone like me) completely impenetrable.”

Media Executive

“I have been working with Fiona for the last year, during which time I have progressed to a senior managerial role within our firm. Her guidance has been invaluable during this period, basing our coaching on deep self-awareness and self-reflection to help me develop as a leader, and to increase my impact, effectiveness and confidence as a board member.”

Managing Director, Private Equity

“I approached Fiona for career coaching; Having worked in various leadership roles I felt I needed help on how to market myself internally and externally. The exercises that Fiona asked me to do, not only helped me discover my strengths but also the values that are dear to me. This has made me a more assured individual and gave me clarity on what I want in my career and life. The techniques that she used really surprised me as they were very accurate and powerful and made me think deeper about my life goals. Fiona has a very easy style of coaching; I really liked the way she listens and connects the dots. Her coaching has made a difference in my life and I look forward to working with her again.”

Finance Executive, Energy

“Fiona delivered leadership development training to the Accenture Customer Strategy Practice. This was excellently received and provided the team with an objective and practical input into their personal goals. 1-2-1 coaching sessions were provided for the senior team and that was seen as a valuable investment for those concerned. Fiona's style, engagement approach and experience were incredibly helpful for the team.”

Managing Director, Accenture
