“I’ve worked with Fiona now for nearly 3 years and over that time she has transformed me from a coaching cynic into a coaching fanatic. Consistently my oasis of calm in a hectic work schedule, she has enabled me to cut through the politics and emotion of many a tricky situation and clearly see the best path forward. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”
