As an actor, Fiona’s ‘public’ speaking is mostly of other people’s words while pretending to be someone else. However, the basic principles of clear and effective communication are always central to her work.

I sent a staff member on this last year and saw a complete transformation in her afterwards. I finally did the class last week and wish I'd done this sooner. Fiona is absolutely brilliant and armed me with all sorts of tips on getting over the fear I have.
