Hi, I’m Fidelma and my purpose is helping female leaders and entrepreneurs to bring their vision and dreams to life. I also offer consulting to a limited number of purpose driven leaders on change and transformation projects each year.
My passion for purpose stemmed when I felt called to take the leap from my well-paid corporate job in technology and running my own consulting business since 2004. I am passionate about empowering purpose driven leaders to become focused and confident so they can claim their worth and create more fulfillment and financial freedom doing what they love.
I’m married to my hometown love, Paul and mother to three beautiful girls. Spirituality has been part of my life since my Dad died in 1994 so I learnt to deal with change by being guided by my intuition, surrendering and believing in miracles.
Some pivotal times where I trusted totally include when I became pregnant naturally in 2005 at 40 years of age after I declined the professional advice to undergo IVF, when our twins survived twin-to-twin syndrome laser surgery in 2008 in my womb at week 21 and winning a New Business Award on Conscious Leadership with Network Dublin in 2010.
I often get asked how I do what I do.
It comes naturally and I’ve learned that as a Highly Sensitive Leader to embrace and value my own leadership gifts of empathy, intuition, connection, problem solving, deep thinker and being deeply spiritual by nature.
According to Dr.Elaine Aron, the founding researcher on highly sensitive people, only 20% of the population is born highly sensitive. She states that you are a member of the “royal advisor” clan and are coded for success.
Hence this inspires me every day to help other women in business to show up fully as their true self and make a much bigger impact with their work.
My experience comes with a proven track record of getting results on large international projects with MISYS helping to set up the services centre in India, on projects with Standard Chartered Bank, Zurich and the Bank of England, along with coaching professionals and leaders at all levels.
This is strong evidence of how a Highly Sensitive Leader works as a guide who leads others to success.
I love music, art and the natural beauty of Ireland. You will either find me mentoring leaders on change and transformation projects or women in business across the globe to step up to their next level in their business and life.
