Cork-based PowerPoint specialist Fiona Walsh has achieved thought leader accreditation from the All-Ireland Business Foundation.
Fiona is the founder of Empower Presentations, a company that offers a new and dynamic approach to PowerPoint Training and Design.
As an informed opinion leader, Fiona has established herself as a go-to person in her field of coaching and she has been acknowledged for her conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance and customer-centricity.
Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Reacting to the announcement, Owner of Imagine Coaching Fiona Walsh said:
“It’s a huge honour for me personally to achieve the Business All-Star accreditation In Thought Leadership. My company, Empower Presentations, offers a new and dynamic approach to personalised PowerPoint Training and Design service. This accreditation from AIBF and the opportunity to interact and work with its many Tribe members offer a new network for Imagine Coaching to fulfil its potential and goals. I would finally like to thank the foundation for the accreditation and my many valued clients for their support so far.”
Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “ Fiona is an informed opinion leader and the go-to person in her field of PowerPoint training and design. Fiona provides PowerPoint training and design services for entrepreneurs and corporate professionals. She is a trusted source who moves and inspires people with innovative ideas, she turns ideas into reality and knows and shows how to replicate her success.”
Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.
He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”
The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.
The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer-dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
