Here are just a few of the testimonials we are very pleased to have received from our participants:

‘I asked Fiona to help us develop our Communications Strategy and improve our overall style and approach as an organisation.  Fiona has delivered and has helped us to significantly ‘up our game’ with customers and stakeholders alike.  Her refreshing approach to simplicity has enabled us to cut through the jargon and put across our key messages in a straight forward and no nonsense way.  Fiona brings unswerving enthusiasm and boundless energy, which in turn has encouraged us to bring out more of our own personality and sense of humour in what we do.  Above all, my team have really enjoyed working with Fiona and I have no doubt that yours will too’.

“Fiona carried out a Reputation MOT  for us with a view to sharpening our internal and external communications. As part of the review she interviewed Councillors, managers and staff as well as doing a document review. Her approach was engaging and effective and she came up with really useful recommendations to help us improve our communication and image. Her ability to get quickly to the key issues and her involving style meant she got buy in and helped us get a handle on the things that make a difference to how our staff and communities see us. And by no means least it helped us prioritise our time and spend too”.

“Fiona Narburgh facilitated a team away day for the Borough of Poole council’s corporate communications team. In planning the day I worked with her really well and found that she was flexible and intuitive to my objectives and team’s needs. Fiona’s presentations on the day were extremely inspiring, motivating and relevant. She managed to provide an essential stepping stone at the team’s pace to move the them to where they needed to be with an experienced hand. Members of the team that were in a negative state of mind before the day changed to advocates of the themes and are still referring to the content of the presentations a month on. My objectives were definitely met and exceeded my expectations resulting in a very enjoyable and engaging day”.
