I have worked with Helen on several projects creating and delivering innovative business solutions both in practical hospitality, cleaning, and coaching and mentoring of management talent.
Helen is one of those rare characters who are extremely knowledgeable and practical at the same time.

Because of Helens practical and very professional approach to the task in hand I have no reservation in recommending Helen as a business solution partner.

Helen has been a great asset to our business.
Helen provided coaching and mentoring to a member of my team and has helped them greatly to improve their confidence and develop into becoming an effective sales person.
She used multiple channels and techniques to develop sales and maintain customer relationships.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Helen for her services around coaching, mentoring and support in the sales environment.

I was very happy with the training course delivered by Helen.
I enjoyed the course so much because it was specifically tailored to my own requirements whilst also in line with the business strategy.

Helen is a such a positive person who likes to add extra value through insights of her own professional experience.
During the course I had multiple opportunities to relate the learning to my own experience in customer service and to understand how I can improve my interactions with customers.

I first encountered Helen Smith 20 years ago when I worked as the Engineering Director of the public transport company First in South Yorkshire. We were reviewing the structures and procedures to improve the quality of cleaning within the organisation. We had presentations from a number of external suppliers but Helen's presentation was outstanding.
Regrettably the board decided to keep the cleaning function in house. Two years later when I was promoted to Managing Director for First Bradford, Helen was one of the first people I contacted. She quickly arranged a smooth transition from in house cleaning to her contract company. What impressed me even more than her original presentation was her commitment and dedication to ensure the service was delivered. Her aftercare was as important to her as the original sale, something that in my experience is rarely seen.
A few years later, when I was working as Managing Director Stagecoach Cambridgeshire, I quickly identified a training need for my new management team.

I remembered that Helen had mentioned her training credentials in one of our earlier conversations. Luckily for me when I contacted her she had set up Professional Resources Consultancy which included Bespoke training packages. Once again, she quickly responded to our needs and arranged and delivered exactly what I was looking for.
I have no hesitation in recommending Helen, as like me you will be amazed by her professionalism and dedication to meet your requirements.

motivates me to be the best.
I cannot recommend her enough.

As the CEO at RFM Group, I worked with Helen at senior level as she completed an interim sales management project. Helen is a focused individual who is highly charismatic and people are naturally drawn to her by her warmth and enthusiasm; she is passionate in her approach to sales and her personal drive and her unswerving commitment to the task in-hand are commendable.

Helen’s enthusiasm is infectious and is motivational amongst a team, she is a natural leader and thrives on the development and success of team members. Helen has the ability to engender trust and confidence with clients and employees; she knows what needs to be done and has a no-nonsense approach.

I would work with her again without hesitation and I recommend her to any company who have an interest in improving their sales and business development processes, turnover and margins.

Professional Resources Consultancy have worked with me from a business development perspective, enabling me to grow and develop my security business and I have provided security solutions for their clients and contacts, some of which were extremely challenging projects but Helen always made sure these were delivered on time and within budgets.

I find Helen to be an absolute pleasure to deal with; she is direct, understands the needs and requirements of business and is very effective in getting the best, most cost-effective solution for her clients.  She is honest, hard-working and completely trustworthy; I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Professional Resources Consultancy to you.

I have worked with Helen since 1996 both as colleagues within 3 of the biggest Cleaning & Maintenance contractors within the UK and on a consultancy basis as she founded Professional Resources Consultancy.

We have worked nationally on multi-million-pound cleaning and maintenance contracts in some challenging and ever-changing environments with Blue Chip clients across all sectors of the market.

Helen’s dedication in the preparation of tenders has always been exceptional. Identifying precisely a client’s specific requirements, undertaking site visits and due diligence, through to identifying solutions and writing the bids, her attention to detail is impeccable. She is unique in her abilities to work closely with the operations teams understanding TUPE legislation and working practices. She possesses strong communication skills and is engaging in her presentations.

In all aspects of business, clients have always been very satisfied and complimentary in what Helen prepared and delivered to them.

Following many years of working with Helen, I know without question that she is a person that you can trust implicitly; she is completely reliable to deliver to both the client and the workforce.

I would say without hesitation that she will make the difference in whatever business or project she is involved in.

I first met Helen when she was recruited to our then mutual company. Helen was recruited to develop and grow the sales pipeline and ultimately convert those leads to margin rich sales. Helen achieved and exceeded all targets set for her in her first year at the business. As Sales Director, Helen was diligent, tenacious, honest, extremely hard working and inspirational to work with. Her desire for success was all consuming.

Our paths continued to cross when her then cleaning business was involved in benchmarking exercises for my business and again when Helen provided consultancy services, including conducting independent audit procedures and advice on cleaning projects.

Helen is successful because of her approach. She is a structured thinker; her style is process-driven and logical and she has the rare ability to engage people so that they move forward with her. She is quick to identify the root-cause of problems but wise and experienced enough not to go into solution mode too quickly, rather taking a more reflected, considered manner. Her people skills are well-honed and her experience as a sales trainer allows her to build a successful team quickly.

Helen builds strong and effective relationships with her team and her clients. Her clients will tell you that she is straight-talking, professional, trustworthy and honourable.
Based on my experience of working with Helen, I would have no hesitation in recommending her to assist your businesses in sales and business development, business structure and process evaluation and general margin enrichment programmes.
