Helen Roberts is many things – she is an inspirational speaker at live events, an action-oriented coach, and a generous mentor – but above all, she is someone who believes in each person’s potential to change their life, and be the best they can be. Whether you are a start up business with just an idea, an already established company that needs help, or a company looking to take that next step, Helen will take you by the hand, give you guidance and the right tools to help you grow.
From early on, Helen’s father taught her that it was up to her to take control of her life, and build a life that she was not only proud of, but that inspired and delighted her. At 25, Helen took up the challenge, and started her own business in Ireland. Helen will be the first person to tell you that setting up a business is not easy, and that you need both passion and a big why to help you overcome the obstacles in your way.
Her philosophy is simple – she always encourages her clients to Find and Do something that they love. She encourages people to strive to be the best that they can be, and achieve far greater success doing something that they love as opposed to working, doing something they hate, for a pay cheque.
Helen has built her business on this basis. In just over twelve months after starting her business, she had made one million, and then went on to grow from strength to strength. Helen learned first-hand that with a combination of focus, discipline, grit and stamina anything is possible!
Over the past fifteen years, Helen has built up a track record of success as a Career Development expert, Career Coach & Business Coach, Mentor and Entrepreneur. She has assisted many of the world’s leading investment banks, and other Fortune 500 companies, and has coached, mentored, trained and supported thousands of people in SME’s across the globe.
What is Helen’s secret?
Helen will tell you that she isn’t hugely smarter, or more gifted than anyone else. She will say that from her early twenties, she developed tools for her own self development, which supported her vision to help her excel. What tools you may ask? Not only did she invest in her own learning, but she also studied with some of the most successful people on the planet. Everything she did was aimed to make her own thoughts, habits and learning better. Helen discovered that small daily improvements when done consistently over time lead to awe inspiring results.
This is what makes Helen uniquely qualified to show you how to unleash your personal greatness on the world. Success means different things to different people, and that is why Helen will first help you to uncover your own true meaning of success, and then she will be your success partner. Helen’s mission is to inspire, encourage, coach and support you through your journey, whether that be getting that next job, starting your own businesses, or expanding your business and taking it to the next level.
There’s a great story of how in 1995, Helen, was headhunted to build the Temp & Contract business and establish a Permanent desk in a small staffing & consulting services group in the city in London. She totally transformed the business and turned it in to a multiple million pound company. She restructured the business entirely, implemented systems and procedures and hired a team of talented recruiters. Helen catapulted sales to a whole new level; increased it by 1000%. She built the temp desk from 37 to over 650 temps per week and established a permanent desk which smashed all targets in its first year. She drove the company results to an all time record high, positioning it ripe for takeover, which it was.
In the past few years, Helen has turned her focus more towards working with people who are starting their own businesses and helping SME’s to grow. She has collaborated with the likes of Start Up Britain, Enterprise Nation, Women In Business Network, Chamber of Commerce, London & Partners as well as her local MP’s, Zack Goldsmith and Mary Macleod, to help provide a platform for Start Ups and SMEs to grow.
