Keynote Speaking | Book Fiona to speak at your event or participate in a panel discussion
When I speak I draw on my multi-disciplinary background and a deep love for narrative and story. I speak on topics as diverse as purpose, leadership, authenticity, expression and spirituality; what they share is the exploration of who we are & how we want to show up in the world. Central to all my speaking work is a desire to inspire people to live a life which truly expresses all of who they are; through their business, work, relationships, the areas of life they are passionate about. This is how meaningful work and lives are created and how we all can show up in a way which offers leadership and makes a difference in our world.

The 3 Things That Matter in Purpose and Leadership – Purpose and Leadership have become buzzwords in the business community. So much so, we have allowed conversations on purpose and leadership to lack any depth. The truth is we are confused about leadership in today’s world. We think to lead we must have power. What many global leaders have shown us is that you can have power and never lead.
Leadership is about impact. How can you use the resources available to you to have a greater impact on yourself, others and society. This is where purpose and leadership intersect. There is no doubt Purpose as a concept is currently for sale. Yet companies continue to struggle with the execution of that purpose because it takes personal leadership to really define and execute purpose with integrity.The biggest mistake people make is they have forgotten that leadership and purpose are inherently human. Leadership and purpose are about you, the leader, not your business or work. They cannot be outsourced to your business.
True purpose and leadership can only come from within. In this keynote, I speak to the three questions everyone should be able to answer if purpose and leadership are to be truly evident in their business and life.
Expressing Your Whole Self - The key purpose to each life is to fully express all of who you are and can be. What you do, how you live, your relationships and your legacy will all flow naturally from a commitment to allow all parts of yourself to be seen and expressed in the world. The business you run, the work you do or the life you live simply provide the vehicles through which you express your whole self.
Purpose-led leaders and individuals universally desire a more equitable world. To create a better world, we must first commit to evolving ourselves. To really lead a purpose-driven organisation or develop a purpose-filled life requires commitment to the inner journey. Any life or business can only develop at the pace of your evolution. Authenticity is not a tagline; it’s a lifelong process and is not without its challenges. You take a risk every time you reveal your true self externally. Expressing your whole self is about investing in all parts of who you are. About deciding what ‘success’ means in your life. To be bigger than your work or business. Identifying and cultivating all parts of ‘Self’ allows you to become a more self-actualised version of yourself in the world. This version is what the world needs and allows you to live and lead with greater depth of authenticity.
By becoming the fullest version of who we can be, we maximise our impact in the world. Each of us has the power to make a difference.
