Fiona’s zest for life, enthusiasm and understanding of my own particular needs was truly inspiring. Our work together got me through a tough speaking challenge and specifically ‘key’ was how she helped me with pace and timing.

About Fiona Whytehead
Fiona has been working as a coach and trainer since 2005, helping people to speak well, relate to and manage others positively, and find the best direction in their own life and work.
She brings to this experience and skills from her previous professions as an actor and a fundraiser. As a performer she acted on film and on stage. She has played in theatres up and down the country including London’s West End. As a fundraiser she both produced shows in venues of all sizes – from private houses to the Royal Festival Hall. She led three successful multi-million fundraising appeals for two different charities and was Director of Fundraising at Refuge (domestic violence). In these worlds, she learnt and practised the art of speaking, exerting influence, and how to find motivation. Having been a manager and raising significant funds, Fiona also understands the importance of a clear vision and the practical know-how required to reach challenging goals.
Now as a performance development coach and speaking skills trainer, she works cross sectors with clients in business, local government, schools, third sector and private individuals with their personal or work related aims; including young people. She has helped individuals to speak and be heard at big occasions with large audiences, intimate receptions and pitches, and one to one meetings; organisations to manage their staff effectively; businesses to expand.
Clients tell her that they admire her high energy, expertise and focus. They appreciate her ability to make them feel comfortable with being challenged in order to move forward and achieve; and also the fact that she listens intently taking her cue from her the client.
