Helen is an Organisation Design and Development (OD) Consultant. She has over 20 years’ experience working in and with a range of global and UK based organisations, both big and small, and from various sectors. She enjoys the stimulation and stretch that this variety provides.
Helen’s strength is in getting to the heart of what’s going on – bringing to the surface what needs to be named – so that subsequent interventions have the best chance of making a real and sustainable difference. She finds huge fulfilment in partnering clients as they navigate the highs, lows and ‘mess’ of change together.
Prior to working as a Consultant, Helen worked for the John Lewis Partnership and the Woolworths Group, where she had operational and commercial experience in addition to positions in Organisation Effectiveness, Talent Development and Change.
As a consultant Helen has worked independently, as well as within a consulting firm where she held a leadership role. Her consulting experience ranges from OD, Team Development, and Change. She also enjoys building internal Change and OD capability within client organisations. She has shaped, led, and delivered projects with clients across the UK and beyond, including a 9-month stint out in Chicago partnering a Retail firm on their transformation journey.
Helen is passionate about her own development. She holds PGDip in Management Studies from the University of Oxford, the ILM level 7 Diploma in Leadership Coaching and Mentoring, and a Certificate in Agile Project Management. Additionally, she is a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) and an internationally approved trainer and supervisor (PTSTA) in the Organisational field of application. She enjoys learning with and from her colleagues and clients.
As a member of the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA), Helen works within their code of ethics, values, and principles, which includes participating in professional supervision.
Helen lives in St Alban’s with her partner and son. She is a keen runner, theatre lover and has more recently developed a passion for gardening.
