FIS Communications Training

FIS has partnered with communications coach Malcolm Love to offer communications training, allowing delegates to gain the skills, and confidence, to deliver powerful presentations.


Malcolm has spent his career working in some form of public communication or another, and over the last 21 years he has actively helped people to be better public communicators. During his work in radio journalism and later as a senior programme maker for the BBC, Malcolm learned the nuts and bolts of connecting with an audience. Now, as a coach, he spends his time figuring out what works for people, and why, as they attempt to communicate their ideas with more effectiveness.

Reviews and endorsements

‘Malcolm has a wealth of knowledge on communicating and presentations. His tricks and tips of the trade give you the self-confidence to get your message across, whether in front of 350  members at the President’s Lunch or at a pre tender meeting selling my company.  With Malcolm’s input and advice you will get the confidence as well as the knowledge. Priceless.’
Steve Coley, managing director, Lakeside Ceilings and Partitions Ltd

‘I went through a session with Malcolm Love prior to my first big speech as President of the AIS (now FIS).  He helped me improve my delivery, control my nerves, relax and deliver the speech.  I took this self-confidence and improved presentation skills back into my day job and this has without doubt helped my career.  I cannot recommend Malcolm’s training sessions highly enough.’
Jonathan Cherry, Global Marketing Manager – Saint Gobain Gyproc
