Paul Featherstone, Product Owner at HMRC
I worked with Helen on a challenging public sector programme where she formed an integral part of the design team which successfully took our product through GDS assessment. Even though Helen had almost lost her voice, she still made a significant contribution - this demonstrates Helen's determined and positive attitude, she won't let her team down. Helen is a highly creative individual and a great person to work with. She's highly collaborative, creative and has a flexible 'can-do' attitude. I'd highly recommend Helen on a personal and professional level.

Working with Helen was a delight. After setting the parameters of the design project, Helen provided a clear outline of what I could expect, which meant I could be confident enough to leave Helen to progress things with little further input from me. Helen initially carried out the instructional design for a specific course for me and I was extremely pleased with the results. Because the original scope was so clear, there were no surprises upon completion and the content needed no revisions. Following this success, I asked Helen to do the build of the e-learning. Again, the outputs were fantastic with Helen achieving a good grasp of our design style and approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen and her work and look forward to working with her again in the future.
I had the pleasure of working with Helen at HMRC.
She always kept an overall perspective of the user needs and the client requirements, an understanding of their wider implications in the project, was able to design content to meet user needs and make complex language easy to understand.
She was also able to communicate clearly to the team who our users were and what their needs were based on evidence. On top of that, she has great interpersonal skills, a fantastic smile and was extremely comfortable with Git, CSS and HTML5. Impressive!
I would love to work with Helen again.
