Finding Your Voice

Finding your Voice is the creation of two Derby business women, Debbie Leafe and Fiona Porter, who have recognised that people achieve so much more, both professionally and personally, when coached. The aim of Finding Your Voice workshops is to provide small groups of women with the time and space to explore what they are passionate about, and to provide the tools and techniques to enable change and move forward.
