Fiona Davis, Educational Consultant for the People Development Command section of Victoria Police in Melbourne, Australia was recently chosen to be featured in the Top 50 Fearless Leaders Publication by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP).

While being selected to be published in IAOTP’s Top 50 Fearless Leaders Publication, is an honor in itself, only 50 of the world’s most brilliant, courageous, inspirational professionals are selected for this distinction.

These special honorees are hand selected to share their stories of perseverance, resilience, passion and strength. They have made outstanding contributions to society; they have impacted their industries and are respected in their trades. A chapter will be dedicated to each honoree and the book is anticipated to be released in the 4th quarter of 2021.

Fiona was recently honored as International Educational Hero of 2020, Educational Consultant of the Decade for 2020, she was inducted into IAOTP’s Hall of Fame and was honored for her selection as Empowered Woman of the Year for 2019 at IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala which was held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Fiona also presented a gift to the President of IAOTP at the gala honoring her experience in the Army.

Fiona joined Victoria Police in 2010. Her key responsibilities involve analyzing, designing and developing training programs for police recruits, detectives, crime scene officers and prosecutors. In 2019 she was working with the Police Air Wing on developing a training program for their Aircrewmen. She ensures that all training programs are compliant with national standards as Victoria Police is a Registered Training Organisation which means they can deliver nationally endorsed qualifications. She conducts continuous improvement audits, provides compliance advice to internal and external stakeholders, and develops educational processes and standardized document templates for all courses at the Police Academy to use. She also assists people in external units to People Development Command to write their courses.

Last year saw Fiona assist in preparing Victoria Police for an audit of their national qualifications which they passed. She was working particularly with prosecutors and crime scene officers to ensure their courses and record keeping was audit ready. This year all courses have resumed and it has been business as usual but very busy catching up on work that was postponed. A highlight for this year was being chosen as part of a small team to be a Master of Ceremony at the graduation parade for police recruits at the Police Academy.

First starting out as a primary school teacher for children for 10 years, Ms. Davis found a passion for education very quickly.  She joined the Australian Army and was involved in education and training development for 20 years.  A highlight of her Army career was to be deployed to East Timor for 9 months where, as part of her duties, she led and managed a small team of military and civilian educators to teach English to members of the East Timorese Army.

In 2020 when Fiona’s home state of Victoria went into lockdown in March due to the rising numbers of COVID infections, she still went to work each day at the Police Academy. She was able to do this even with all the Chief Health Officer’s restrictions as she was part of emergency services. As the lockdown progressed and police courses were cancelled, Fiona offered her services to the Army and returned to active service to assist her state during the crisis. When interviewed for our Tip Radio, Fiona said it was different being deployed to provide assistance in your own state. It was an honour and privilege to serve again. She did this from mid-Aug to end Nov, then returned to work with Victoria Police but worked from home as the situation had still not improved enough for people to return to the office. This year she has negotiated to work from home two days a week and in the office for three days as a flexible working arrangement as part of her transition to retirement plan.

Ms. Davis maintains her connection to the Army by being an Army Reserve Officer and currently serves with the Australian Army History Unit as a Museum Manager. Her unit was impacted by COVID 19 during 2020 by having to close for 9 months. During that time Fiona, as the manager, was the only person who was able to go and check on the museum building and contents. During that time, Fiona conducted regular Zoom meetings with her staff to keep in contact with them all. Once again in 2021 it has been closed twice due to lockdowns. She also worked for the Directorate of Operations and Training Area Management by writing a training package for their Range Control Officers Course (these people manage Defence’s firing ranges Australia wide). She now conducts the end of course evaluations.

Fiona is dedicated to continuing her education.  She currently holds a Master of Professional Studies in Instructional Design, a Master of Professional Studies in Teaching ESL, a Bachelor of Education and diplomas in management and project management. She completed her studies for two further diplomas in 2017: one in Training Design and Development and the other in Vocational Education and Training.

Ms. Davis has belonged to professional organizations throughout her career, and has been recognized globally for her hard work and accomplishments.  She is a member with the Australian Institute of Training and Development and Returned Servicemen’s League of Australia.  She was the recipient of the Australian Army Active Service Medal and the Australian Army Long Service Medal.  She was named Top VIP Member of Worldwide Branding in 2013 & 2014, selected as Top Female Professional for 2015 and featured in Pro-Files Magazine. She was also selected for the Worldwide Lifetime Achievement Award, featured in a chapter for the Top 101 Industry Expert publication, and has been named “Top Educational Consultant of the Year” by the International Association of Top Professionals for 2016.  For 2017 she was selected for the Top Female Executive Award by IAOTP and for 2018 graced the front cover of TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine.  For 2019 she was selected not only for the Empowered Woman of the Year Award but also for the Humanitarian of the Year Award. She was featured in Times Square on the famous Reuters building for her IAOTP recognition.

When not working, Fiona enjoys physical activity for her body and mind. She plays field hockey for a Melbourne club as well as master’s hockey, regularly runs, and walks their dog with her husband. Fiona makes jewelry and has an extensive collection of beads. She also enjoys reading crime and adventure novels. Her favorite authors are Agatha Christie, Clive Cussler, Peter Temple and Dick Francis.

In late Dec 2019 she and her husband adopted a new dog from a pet rescue society. It’s a black and tan kelpie named Billy who’s now about 3 years old. He loves running and playing chasings. During Melbourne’s lockdown when she and Dave were working from home, Billy adopted their bed as his favourite spot – and still does.

A highlight of 2019 was playing in her age group for Victoria in the Australian Women’s Masters Hockey Championship in October where the team won the silver medal. She was also runner up in her hockey clubs best and fairest award. Fiona has returned to hockey this year and is enjoying playing again. She is umpiring both adult and junior games on the weekends as well as school hockey during the week.
