Fiona English Keynote Speaker | Coach | Thought Leader
With a background in global investment and expertise in purpose, leadership, authenticity and self-actualisation, Fiona helps audiences and clients gain clarity on making purpose real in life and business and living the life they desire so they can amplify their impact in the world.
I speak on topics as diverse as purpose, leadership, self-actualisation, authenticity, citizenship, self-expression & spirituality; what they share is the exploration of who we are & how we want to show up in the world.
I specialise in supporting purpose-led business owners, leaders and individuals seeking to express more of who they can be and maximise their impact in life and work. Utilising my multi-disciplinary expertise, I provide you with the space to explore and challenge your ideas, values and strategic direction.
On my Substack, I write about topics such as purpose, leadership, citizenship, self-actualisation, spirituality, authenticity & my personal journey to express my whole self.

Programme Director - Education Sector
"Fiona just 'gets it'. She has worked at a level in international business that allows her to appreciate the context of whatever I bring to sessions; dealing with sophisticated and competing stakeholders, complex issues and the conflicting demands that come with running a business. Our coaching sessions have helped me navigate the demands of the business with fresh thinking bringing a sense of ease which has benefited my wider life. Incredibly insightful & hugely supportive, our sessions have become an important part of my month"
"Starting and attempting to scale your own business at times feels like a lonely high-wire act – Fiona understands that intrinsically and combines the compassion and challenge of an insightful coach, with the wise counsel of a strategic advisor. Fiona asks such incisive questions and has helped me to tease out my overall strategic direction; products; services – challenging me to remain faithful to my vision and in alignment with my true passions. For me that’s gold-dust and I can’t recommend Fiona highly-enough!"

"Fiona has been an enormous source of support in both my work and life. She has helped me navigate the times in life when I found it difficult to tap into my own inner compass. Fiona approaches every conversation with curiosity, wisdom and empathy. As a coach, her approach is multi-dimensional but the output is consistent, I generally come away from our discussions with a renewed sense of courage, faith, strength and purpose”
Head of Institutional Business Development - Asset Management
“I started working with Fiona at a time when I was unsure which direction to take my professional career. I was inspired by her courage in making changes happen several years before in her own career. In the exchanges we had Fiona struck me as very wise yet approachable. She was able to ask questions that brought me right back to my own approach and answers, when I was perhaps mistakenly looking for external answers. Our coaching sessions have left me feeling both supported and empowered, at peace with the big change that I was going through“

The Unalome symbol represents the path to enlightenment in Eastern traditions. The spirals symbolise the twists and challenges in life while the lotus flower represents reaching enlightenment through embracing this growth process. The Unalome always resonated with me, so much so I have a tattoo of one! The reality is life can be difficult and our challenge is to navigate opportunity and uncertainty in a way that helps us become the person we are destined to be and promotes our ambitions and dreams in life and work.
