Organiser Be Heard Public Speaking

Organiser of Public Speaking: 6-week Course

An award winning speaker, with First Class Honours degrees in languages and business, I teach public speaking in workshops and one-to-one.  I have a Certificate in Interpersonal Communications from UCC and am currently training to be a Certified Focusing Professional (which is a therapeutic modality to help people ease their anxiety). I specialise in helping people with extreme speaking anxiety.


Without a doubt, Fiona's course has been the most rewarding & fun course I have ever attended. The supportive environment she creates has really helped us all develop & start to feel much more of a buzz rather than just a feeling of dread when we speak in front of others.

Martin Redmond, Financial Services.

Have to do a monthly presentation to CEO & CFO in Aer Lingus, I'm only doing a portion of it but if someone told me 12 months ago I'd be doing it, I'd have said no chance...thought of you after the presentation and so a BIG thank you!

Eddie Murphy, Head of Fleet Assets, Aer LIngus.

You are a natural teacher Fiona - encouraging, supportive, insightful and gently challenging. I was impressed by your lovely personal style and tone as well as your highly professional delivery. Your feedback was constructive, useful and empowering.

Leonie Kelly, Strategy Analyst, Tourism Ireland.

I was terrified coming into the class but Fiona put us at our ease straight away. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is nervous about presenting. I've learned so many helpful techniques. It was such a positive atmosphere - all down to Fiona! 

Alma Hanvey, Pharmacist.
