“Fiona has been providing PR and communications consultancy advice to the International Dragon Association (IDA) for more than 14 years. She has edited the IDA’s annual Yearbook since 2008 , working with the designer to give it a professional look and feel, while always keeping it fresh. As the IDA has adopted a more professional approach to regatta management in recent years she has become the ‘go to’ person for running the complex regatta PR office in most of the championship and Grand Prix events in European venues. She understands the skills required to work successfully with an organisation which is run by a volunteer Board, and is always available with timely and well-judged advice.” – Tim Pearson, International Dragon Association
Fiona’s relationship with the International Six Metre Association goes back several years. She has been solely responsible for handling the Association’s public relations at three major championships, and was booked to support the 2020 event which has been postponed to next year. She has also created and set up a new website for the Association which she continues to support and edit.
Fiona has a great ability to produce concise, accurate and readable copy. She has shown she can think on her feet. She has a flexible approach to work schedules, and she has the organisational ability to provide support at events which can involve setting up a work-station almost anywhere and working unusual hours. In a more structured environment, she has shown a conscientious approach to keeping our website up to date and relevant.
I look forward to continuing our association. – Tim Russell, International Six Metre Association
