Fiona is available for public speaking and media engagements.
She is a highly experienced chair-person, workshop facilatator, panelist and debater, having carried out such roles for most of her adult life in many contexts, within Australia and at international conferences and forums.
She has addressed audiences of up to 2,000 in Australia, Japan, Fiji and London on issues relating to gender equity, nuclear disarmement, peace, the environment social justice and education.
In 2012, the City of Ballarat commissioned Fiona to write and perform 'Memories of a Ballarat Childhood' for its May Heritage Weekend, so it is not out of the question for commisions involving comedic reflections or appearances 'in role' geared to the needs of specific organisations, to stimulate reflections and identification through humour, or pathos, via story-telling that relates directly to the experience of the audience.
As an educator, Fiona has spent almost thirty years motivating and challenging both her students and peers and members of the community to excel and develop and refine new and existing skills.
As a role model, she can offer her experience as a feminist, tree changer, survivor of grief and many life challenges, carer of aged parents, establishing a new business, reinventing yourself, or even using radio talk-back programs to advance social campaigns.
