Following a 30+ year career that combined practical leadership with learning and development in a variety of public and private organisations, Fiona made the transition into the world of consulting in 2013. She provides pragmatic leadership development solutions, drawing on her own experience of having led diverse teams in some really challenging situations – and applying her passion for coaching and people development. Her leadership L&D solutions are commercially focused, engaging, insightful and fun.
Fiona started her career in Recruitment, quickly progressing into HR and Training. She discovered she had a natural talent for working with – and helping to develop – people.
Her passion for people led her to a career in the Police, where she spent 15 years as an operational officer, with her specialism being Police Training. She qualified to the rank of Inspector – so whilst honing her own leadership skills, also had the privilege of training and developing other like-minded colleagues. During this time, she learnt a lot about herself, as well as what makes other people tick.
In 2008 she decided to make Learning & Development her full-time career and so she left the Police and returned to the Corporate world.
Now Managing Director of Developing Leaders Ltd, Fiona has finally found her niche! She is an excellent communicator and a dedicated Coach. She knows how to make hard decisions and how to prioritise; she leads by example and takes great pleasure in helping people to realise their potential, improve performance and add value to their organisation.
