We have an impact in every piece of work we undertake, large or small, long or short. Our aim is to provide a significant and lasting impression:
Rowan Gormley – Majestic Wine, CEO and Nakedwines.com, Founder
If you want to get an honest insight into how the human mind works, and specifically how YOUR mind works, and how other people understand that then I recommend Fiona. And I recommend her new book.
She manages to get to the bottom of complex issues, and communicate them in a way you can action. And she is nice enough to tell you some home truths in the nicest possible way.
David Parkin – Director, Network Strategy National Grid
I have worked with Fiona for two years in a professional coaching capacity. Over this period she has strengthened my self-awareness through a mixture of psychological insight and practical ‘go and try’ advice. She has helped me develop a far greater understanding of the personal dynamics at play in large corporate entities, and, throughout, she has proved an excellent sounding board for career development options. Her ability to combine an academic approach with real world practicality gained from working with a range of board level executives makes her an excellent coach.
Clive Bairsto – Director at Government Olympic Executive, within Department of Culture Media & Sport
Fiona is an extremely insightful person, with a great manner and personable disposition. She is highly thorough, creative, thoughtful and thought-provoking – and brings a great blend of confidence and self-deprecation to the situations where I have sought her guidance. She follows up well – and from my perspective – is very highly recommended in her specialisms and more broadly as psychologist, observer and coach.
Graham White – Deputy Chairman Lloyd’s of London, Chairmain Argenta plc
Fiona exudes energy, but with a sense of calm and measured thought. She is cool under fire, and can restore order and harmony to most situations, whilst delivering the hard messages as necessary. It seems to me that this is because she is not only professionally trained, unlike a number of charlatans who peddle these sort of wares, but also because, as a person, if you snapped her in half, like a stick of Brighton rock, the word “integrity” would come shining through. Her values are the right ones. She prepares meticulously, is a delight to work with, and I would have no hesitation in commending her to anyone.
Rod Finch – Strategy Director, Lloyd’s Banking Group
Over a period of 18 months, I have come to know Fiona as a very thorough and engaging coach. She establishes trust and rapport quickly through a combination of honesty and highly attuned insight with thoughtful but challenging feedback. I would highly recommend her.
Martin Sawkins, Group HR Director, Rentokil-Initial
Fiona provides assessment and development support for our top 100 global leaders. Her assessments and insight are an integral part of our selection process for all at this level and she has become a highly valued adviser to all members of the Executive Committee.
Lynne Graham, Group HR Director, WSH Ltd
Fiona is an extremely experienced occupational psychologist who brings her technical expertise but also her deep understanding of how organisations work to any assignment. I first met her when I undertook a 4 hour personal development interview and was impressed not only with the feedback (which was precise and incisive) but also with the warm and engaging way in which she conducted the assessment. I have now worked with Fiona for the past year on a number of assignments all of which have been delivered to an extremely high standard and on time. As importantly Fiona is so respected and trusted by our leadership team that she is seen as “one of us”.
Campbell Fitch, Global HR Director, Ipsos Mori
I will have no hesitation to work with Fiona again where I have a need for executive career coaching for C suite colleagues. I can highly recommend her approach, her personality and overall professionalism.
Howie Silver, Regional Technology Director, Asia Pacific, BP
I came to know Fiona on a career direction & development interview session organised by my employer. The session was detailed and incisive, and drew on Fiona’s experiences both in Occupational Psychology, and knowledge of what made great companies ‘tick’. Fiona’s coaching style is personable and instantly engaging and the output was insightful, pragmatic and actionable, great qualities in an occupational psychology professional.
As an output, the resultant developmental plan highlighted transition areas for focus in sufficient detail to allow targeted development planning. The interview was incredibly useful from a personal and professional sense, and I would certainly return to Fiona to explore further development areas in the future.
Daragh Fagan, General Council, Europe & Asia, Thomson Reuters
I met Fiona as part of the recruiting process that led to my current role at Rentokil Initial. Fiona was highly professional as well as personable and I was quickly made to feel at ease while undergoing a rigorous and thorough assessment. I was impressed with the depth and nuanced insight of the report that she produced on me, and she was also able to give me strong insights into the culture of the company I have since joined and the personalities of key members of the executive team.
