Testimonials

Here’s what people say about FP Training and our design and delivery of bespoke Management and Leadership development programmes.

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity of undertaking training on an ILM Level 3 course that was taught by Fiona. This course lasted for 2 years and I found it extremely beneficial and worthwhile, mainly because Fiona has an excellent ability of understanding how training fits in your own job role. Fiona is extremely supportive and enables learning in a relaxed style yet she manages to provide a wealth of knowledge in each session. She provides a fantastic learning experience and I would highly recommend Fiona to anybody considering coaching services.

I had a training course with Fiona Porter in Dubai in 2016 entitled (Essentials of Leadership), she made our training course, such an interesting and practical one. Fiona demonstrated great presentation skills and deep knowledge on this subject, I can’t thank her enough. I recommend her with confidence for any training or consultation on the Leadership or related fields.

We used Fiona to help us develop our Management team. Our team were initially unreceptive to the idea of management training so Fiona had her work cut out with a negative audience. At the end of the first session Fiona already had buy in from the delegates and our own feedback was very positive.
I would not hesitate to recommend Fiona and her service the results have been excellent and on-going.

Since we partnered together over a year ago I have found Fiona to be extremely supportive, highly flexible as we have had to change many interventions at short notice. Fiona you have been an utter professional and embraced our complex organisation and delivered everything we have asked of you at a very high standard.

I would most certainly recommend Fiona to any organisations. Your approach to relationship building comes across as very genuine and you were always truly interested in understanding my business needs and offering solutions which added value to our employees.

I have been impressed with the tailored service, dedication and pro-activeness that Fiona Porter provides and the feedback from our site managers has been excellent. It warms me to know that we have a training provider who understands our needs and has the flexibility and dedication to tailor a solution to meet these needs. We look on FP Training as a key partner in assisting our ambitious growth plans and helping to maintain the concept that our people are central to the success of our business.

I worked with Fiona for over a year on a management development training programme to up- skill 20 area managers in a variety of sales, customer service and team management skills. She delivered an innovative, challenging and relevant programme which has inspired a number of the managers to greater ambition and performance. Several are now regional directors.

Fiona’s coaching provided an excellent basis from which I have taken some fundamental steps in my personal development. I have radically changed some of my perceptions and outlook, a process that I may not necessarily have undertaken at the rate Fiona delivered. I do not give recommendations lightly, however I fully endorse Fiona to those considering coaching services.

Fiona, is an excellent trainer, I have attended several days of courses with her and each time, I take on board the information and come away feeling like I have learnt something new, I have attended other courses in the past and have felt both underwhelmed with the course content or overwhelmed where the trainer has crammed too much into one day. Fiona has an excellent balance, of interaction, learning, and role-play that truly inspires you to learn.

I hired Fiona whilst working at Kaplan. Fiona delivered a series of ILM Management workshops at levels 3 and 5. The feedback from the students was always extremely positive and they all commented on how effective the learning had been. I was always really impressed with Fiona’s delivery style, how she used a wide range of methods that led to all the students passing the course. I happily recommend Fiona for high level management courses.

Fiona has worked with us in the design of materials, approaches and content for some of our programmes in Qatar. She is incredibly knowledgeable, easy to work with and above all is creative. She builds relationships based on trust and mutual support and is extremely professional in her approach to all that she does.

Having completed the Prince’s Trust enterprise programme, Fiona was allocated as my mentor, and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I am a freelance artist, without any background in business and Fiona helped me to create strategies to turn it into a business. As well as providing expertise, she helped me think creatively around problems and empowered me to make it into something that I can make work as a business in the long term.

YOU DON’T NEED A TITLE TO BE LEADER.

As a Leadership Trainer, I am often asked to address ‘performance problems’ where little analysis of the root cause of the problem has been undertaken …

Leadership and trustworthiness

Why is Engendering Trust so Important as a Leader?

The concept of great leaders has changed since I started developing leaders 20 years ago, then the emphasis was on management development rather than developing leaders.
