Fiona’s keynote at our annual conference was engaging, meaningful and fun for our delegates. They had a laugh and a chance to reflect on the culture they’re building at the same time. Just what we’d hoped for.

It was great to see Fiona’s keynote at the annual conference. She got the whole room singing and laughing as well as giving us some really valuable insights into how culture works and how we can change it. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a speaker who can deliver a combination of meaning and fun.

Fiona is an experienced and effective management consultant. She truly understands people, their behaviour and the drivers that enable cultural change. Fiona has successfully delivered purpose driven strategies that have shaped organisational culture. I have witnessed first-hand Fiona’s passion and drive when engaging with a large audience to spark intrigue and excitement. Her ability to influence senior executives to lead and demonstrate the required behaviours for cultural change has resulted in the successful implementation of sustained changed behaviours and practices.
