Hi, I’m Fiona, and I’m so happy to see you here!
My Background + Experience
Having lived, studied and worked in both the UK and France, I am fully bilingual, with experience of both French and British cultures.
I have a rich and varied employment record, having worked in various fields such as the wedding industry, recruitment, legal, sales, and real estate.
I became a self employed events florist in 2015, leaving my legal career in order to have a better work / life blend around my young family. Whilst I no longer work as a florist, I have become passionate about working with fellow entrepreneurs.
A Virtual Business
I am based in Western France, right in between Poitiers and Angoulême, where my husband and I bought an old French farmhouse in 2018. I run my businesses from here : Fiona Lafon Business, Emerald and Jade Loves and Emerald and Jade Gites. My husband also runs his own business : Le Jardin Contemporain.
The beauty of running a virtual business, is that whilst I live here in rural France, I can nevertheless help you wherever you are based, whether you are down the road or further afield.
