East Anglian Business Awards judges comment:

“Helen is a dynamic leader and this has allowed her business to be shaped in a specific way which allows flexibility and growth. Helen is thorough and calculates risk extremely well especially when it comes to staffing and tendering for new business – if it is not right for the organisation Helen has a strong will to say no. With high standards of customer service at the forefront of everything Helen does, her business has gone from strength to strength. The positive reputation that her business has secured has been built upon her ethos of creating a team of people that companies can relate to, connect to and value.”
