Testimonials from WOVEN programme participants


I appreciate Fiona introducing the strengths stuff. She is a great role model, enthusing, educating and building up direct reports to identify, recognise and develop their own strengths. She inspires people to change and develop new skills.'

Fiona is a pillar of strength, a great sounding board and I trust her implicitly with the support that she provides to me and also the ability to help me see "out of the fog".

- Manager A.


It was wonderful to get together as a wider team and work on our strengths together. Thank you for creating the space to share and support each other. I thoroughly enjoyed the activities, the videos, and coming together to create a team vision as well as really getting clarity on our individual strengths. It was innovative. Practical. Inspirational. Dynamic. Thank you Fee!

- T, Senior Advisor.


I have been working with Fiona (for six months) to support building a higher performing team and break down the silos. Fiona has taken my team on a strength based journey. The journey has been interesting, energising, challenging for individuals and has resulted in significant positive changes across the entire team. As a result, the team cohesion has grown substantially and individuals work well together understanding each other’s strengths and abilities to support, help and advise.

Fiona has been an outstanding facilitator allowing the team to grow together and influence the journey based on the team’s overall needs and existing and emerging relationships.

I will certainly look at using Fiona’s services in the future.

I have been lucky enough to have had the pleasure of working with Fiona Hunter on a team strengthening journey. I found the whole exercise very illuminating and rewarding. During the journey, I had the opportunity to learn about my team members and discover what they enjoyed doing and what they were good at. This enabled me to adjust how I interacted with them and provided me with the opportunity to empower individuals in areas that they had strengths in. The whole experience resulted in a higher performing team who respected and identified how individuals could add value to our team objectives.

Fiona directed the whole team in a very professional manner and provided a great deal of fun along the journey. I would highly recommend utilising Fiona to assist with developing and fostering a positive environment for your employees to thrive in.

After realising that my team was going through significant changes and challenges, and although each person had clear strengths, it was evident and concerning that the team was not benefiting and clearly under a lot of strain. When I read the synopsis of The Woven Programme , it jumped out as the right way to go and exactly addressed the areas we (as a team) were struggling with.

I couldn’t recommend this programme enough, and Fiona’s wise and pragmatic approach to dealing with the multitude of challenges a team can face.

Fiona did strengthening teams work with my leadership team this year. This programme enabled me to work with my team on how we want to operate and I got the opportunity to guide and shape in my own way how the team applied everyday leadership. Fiona’s approach was considered and enthusiastic and not confronting - with positive comments on her approach from the team. The team are now more familiar with each other, particularly each others’ strengths and we have a plan of action based on our team strengths for next year.
