I'm an experienced sales and marketing professional with a broad portfolio of clients and a great track record of proven success. The businesses I work with ask me to help them drive commercial results from tactical sales and marketing activity. Also, founder of Find a Creative Pro Ltd .
The businesses I work with are usually established and time-starved businesses who are seeking growth. I work with people to understand where the business is now, where it wants to be and what steps are needed to get there. Together we create strategies to increase sales to existing customers, increase the price at which they sell and to attract and retain new audiences.
"Helen has really helped us to put some science to our flamboyant marketing and help connect it to the sales process." Hamish Smith, Creative Director www.artisansofdevizes.com
Helen has really helped us to put some science to our flamboyant marketing and help connect it to the sales process.
My work is always driven by clear objectives for short, mid and long-term growth - this is how return on investment (ROI) is achieved.
Clients who work with me are very varied and include local start-ups through to international household brands. I've got a great portfolio with lots of experience and have a talent for looking at the current revenue performance of a business and then spotting where and how it can be increased.
"Helen was invaluable to Super 8 Media, as we were taking our first tentative steps in the world of publishing. Her experience and calming influence helped us to plan our magazine strategy with the minimum of fuss, setting us a path that enabled us to double our portfolio in the first year of business. We now have a range of printed and digital magazines covering the area of Wells, Glastonbury and Street with a monthly combined print-run of 11,000 copies."
Dean Mortlock, Owner of Super 8 Media
"Helen is one of those rare people who absolutely delivers. I approached Helen to offer advice, guidance and training when I took over The Bath & Wiltshire Parent magazine, with a particular focus on her helping me to hone my sales skills. The training was quite simply superb with Helen using her experience and skills to understand my specific challenges and helping me to deal with them. What I particularly liked was Helen's ability to tailor her training to my needs and not simply reel out some production line advice. Best of all, the advice worked - really well."
Ian Waller, Owner Bath and Wiltshire Parent Magazine
"Helen is not only a great leader but she also has that very rare and desirable talent for innovation. She has implemented many sales initiatives and sales drives which have yielded extra revenue and motivation for her team(s). Always positive and always a problem solver, great to work with and really good at finding ways of getting her team to go the extra mile. Someone I would always work with and recommend to anyone else"

2016See moreFind a Creative Pro: as busy freelancers ourselves, we felt it’s hard to prospect for new business whilst managing existing clients professionally. We also felt there must be a better way than the current batch of bidding style platforms which disregard expertise in favour of rate, so the recruiting business loses out good quality talent.So we launched something to fix that.
