where do you want your business to be?
Could you do with a little support to get your creative business to where you'd like it to be? Are you charging enough for your product (or making a loss without realising it?) Do you love what you do but aren't confident about approaching galleries and have no idea where to start with a trade fair? I would love to help!
use my experience to help you
I have over 20 years experience in business and business development and have most probably been worried, or a bit stumped about the same things you are. I offer affordable, bite size business support packages that focus on helping you take logical and sustainable steps forward. I have learnt a lot on my journey and I love nothing more than seeing other people thrive. Talking in depth about your business can be both terrifying and emotionally draining (I get this) and it sometimes feels much easier to stick your head in the sand, but it doesn't have to be like this.
little tweaks = big difference
Little tweaks can make a big difference to your success. I know from experience it's really hard to see these possible 'tweaks' when you are wrapped up in the day to day running of things. Add to that the fact that creative businesses are so personal, (your heart and soul are often part of the business model) and it becomes obvious that it's really hard to look at what you do objectively. I offer a sensitive, affordable and honest approach to evaluating your business and helping you create solutions for moving forward.

I am not the most confident person when talking to new people, never mind discussing something as personal and as invested as my business, but Helen put me at ease from the very first email.
Her straightforward approach and questions, alongside her knowledgeable and honest thoughts, meant I left our meeting feeling she understood me, my business, and I no longer felt lost on how to move forward.Would highly recommend any creative business to invest in Helen's services as the results speak for themselves.

Exceptional consultation experience, rating 5/5 stars
I recently had the pleasure of booking a Trade Business Consultation/appointment with Helen, and I cannot express how valuable and transformative the experience was.
From the moment we began, it was evident that Helen possesses an unmatched depth of knowledge and expertise in her field. Her insights were not just informative but also incredibly enlightening, pointing out new perspectives, directions and possibilities for me.
Helen is an excellent communicator. Her ability to create a comfortable,non-judgemental environment in which she patiently listened to my concerns and questions, was effortless. And her attention to detail exemplary.
What sets Helen apart is her personalised approach. Helen tailored her advice to my specific needs and goals. It was evident that she genuinely cared about helping me succeed and her guidance has been clear actionable advice to follow.
I have already started to implement the strategies and recommendations that Helen made, and I can already see progress and positive results unfolding.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Helen if you are seeking guidance, expertise and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
