Play Hard…

Helen is passionate about people and helping businesses create the right environment for them to flourish. Outside of work she loves spending time walking the dog with her family and catching up with friends over dinner or drinks. When not talking she will found with her head in a book.

Work Hard…

Developing a leadership culture within your business is one of the bravest moves you can make.

Strong managers are the role models that lead, inspire and motivate teams to pave the way to business success. Leaders understand their people and with the right skills, empower them to deliver their full potential.

By enabling your people to take ownership, develop key skills and support each other to achieve their potential, you allow your business to grow beyond your own expectations and limitations. Investment in Management and Leadership Development enhances and nurtures valuable talent, enabling them to thrive in-line with the corporate vision and values.

People Spark supports you to do exactly that by helping your people understand their position in the business and how they can support its growth and we help them to discover strengths and confidence they didn’t know they had. We deliver programmes that engage with your business objectives, set goals that support these objectives and challenge you to develop and master skills that change businesses.
