I have known Helen for over 5 years and worked with her on a number of internal programmes. Helen is the consummate professional, balancing expertise, knowledge and experience with a practical approach that truly brings her training to life and making the skills shared easy to implement within the workplace. Helen’s approach is to work closely with an organisation to ensure that the true needs are understood and met. A clear approach, balanced with thought challenging questions! Helen’s enthusiasm for her work is highly infectious! Helen has worked with many of our Senior Managers and helped them develop their coaching and communication skills. Helen has also worked closely with our commercial team to support our customer develop as well. A real joy to work with!
I have attended many of Helen’s learning and development programs over the years and have found Helen to be a genuinely inspiring and impactful facilitator who is clearly experienced and passionate about her work - I have personally benefited from, and enjoyed, the learning content and know of many others who would share this view.
Helen has a personable, accessible style that is backed by expert knowledge. She creates an environment where real change can occur and individuals can make the best of themselves. Positive in personality and sensitive to the needs of others, Helen has helped me and my team to significant performance improvements and better team working in recent months through great coaching and facilitation.
Helen facilitated sessions for the Corporate Management Team at Rushcliffe Borough Council whilst I was employed there. The sessions Helen led were always innovative, engaging and designed to get the best out of people. Helen has a natural ability and flair to engage with teams and individuals and get the best out of them, a real pleasure to work wit.
I have worked with Helen on a number of projects at BP. She has the ability to engage at all levels of organisations and is adept at managing the pace and content of her coaching activities in a manner wholly appropriate to the audience she is working with. Helen has an infectious and engaging personality and is also remarkably perceptive and intuitive - rare gifts. Helen represents her industry in an exemplary fashion and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to any company looking for breakthroughs at individual, group and organisational levels. You will not be disappointed.
I have attended a number of training courses designed and led by Helen and have found her to be an excellent facilitator and coach. She brings humour, insight and a real personal touch to everything she does along with deep knowledge and professionalism. I was fortunate to attend a 6 month development course run by Helen. In these sessions she created a safe and nurturing environment that enabled all participants to get the most from the materials and the time invested. On a 1-2-1 basis she is an intuitive and perceptive coach who has helped me to achieve more than I believed I could. I highly recommend Helen as both a coach and facilitator and hope to work with her again soon.
I had the good fortune of being tutored by Helen on a recent Coaching and Mentoring course. Over the full term of the studying, Helen demonstrated a professional approach to the teaching, clearly articulating key messages, developing rapport with the students, whilst adapting her teaching techniques to cater for all members of the study group, albeit without losing emphasis of the point; a terrific skill! Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Helen to an individual, or organisation, wanting to develop themselves or their teams through a 'Coaching and Mentoring' style of approach.
I have had the pleasure of working with Helen over the last two years, Helen has supported Attains people development programme leading sessions across all levels of our business during this period. As Attain are a people focused developmental organisation, Helen has been a perfect fit and an important part of our journey helping us create the strong team ethic across our ambitious and high performing teams. Helen is a great facilitator and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from a variety of sectors to inform any situation. I look forward to continuing to work with Helen in the future.
I had great pleasure of working with Helen over the last two years. She is knowledgeable, patient, able to tailor the material, approach and the tone to the audience and has a great sense of humour. I always enjoyed our sessions and I found them both useful and interesting and I really appreciated the mix of immediately applicable tools and the deeper underlying theory. I look forward to working with Helen in the future.
We have been working with Helen for just over 12 months now. Helen is friendly, professional and really knows her subject matter. She is current in her way of thinking and has ensured that she has really got to know and understand our people and our business well. This has meant that each session undertaken becomes even more useful and meaningful. People are comfortable with Helen and are happy to be open about difficult and sensitive subjects on occasion. I would not hesitate to recommend Helen and Orange Pip courses.
Helen is put simply, a brilliant teacher. Her ability to shape sessions tailored to specific business requirements is excellent, but in my view, her ability to encourage attendees to view challenges objectively and positively is inspiring. I would recommend anyone to seize the opportunity to attend one of her workshops.
Helen is a fantastic coach, engaging and very insightful. Our sessions have always been interesting and thought provoking which has been invaluable at an important time. She seems to have an uncanny knack of picking the right direction to take my thought processes and as such opens up an new perspective. This has allowed me to learn more about myself , identify things that have held me back and work out the way forward.
