Since 2017 I have been involved in a variety of projects for the CIPD. CIPD engaged me to redesign one of their management development programme offerings. I enjoyed working as part of a small team of facilitators to review current content and redesign elements for a new ‘people development’ programme. I will facilitate the workshops as part of the pilot.

I am also the Expert Speaker on one of the L&D Level 5 qualifications offered by AVADO for CIPD. I present and discuss with the students the Social and Collaborative Learning Module online live class.

I have an Associate contract with CIPD to support and facilitate a variety of workshops within the management and leadership portfolio of courses.

In a voluntary capacity, I was the Vice Chair of the Central London Branch. Volunteering in the role since June 2016 – June 2019, it is great to give back to my professional network and colleagues.

I have seen Fiona display her exceptional skills as facilitator when delivering CIPD courses and other events such as ‘unconferences’. Fiona is very knowledgeable and can share that knowledge in helpful and supporting ways while using her facilitation skills to draw out the knowledge in a room. Fiona is also a great online facilitator able to engage people and maintain their interest and attention in virtual classrooms and webinars. Fiona is very principled, honest, reliable and a pleasure to work with and I personally look forward to working with her again soon – Giorgia Gamba Quilliam, CIPD Digital Learning Portfolio Manager
