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, self-actualisation, 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.

#1 Purpose Is A Choice / The Three Things That Matter In Purposeful Leadership
Purpose, at its core, is about choice. Purpose asks us what matters to us – as people, as citizens of our world, as employees and leaders in business. What do you really value? And how does that understanding infuse your decision-making process? Purpose is rooted in who you are. It is real clarity on what matters to you and the choices you will make as a result. In this keynote, I speak to the three questions everyone, regardless of their position, should be able to answer if purpose and purposeful leadership are to be truly evident in their work and life.
Audiences come away feeling more connected to what purpose means to them and compelled to act in a way which makes a bigger impact on our world.
#2 Expression - Moving Beyond Purpose Towards Potential
There is the natural impulse within us all to grow and change. Self actualisation and human potential are not about striving for the simplicity and singularity of purpose but about blooming into the fullest expression of your innate potential.
The problem with our modern definition of purpose is it is singular in its focus. ‘Find Your Purpose’ has framed purpose as simply something we do. Specifically, something we work at or monetise. This is a gross over-simplification of purpose. In any purpose-filled life, ‘success’ will never be linear or one dimensional. To really develop, grow and experience purpose over the course of your lifespan involves accessing your potential and expressing your whole self. 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. Your life, work or relationships simply provide the vehicles through which you express your whole self. Expression is about recognising you, and everyone around you (whether it be your staff, your spouse or society) benefit most not from what you do but from the person you can become.
