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.

Helen provided a professional and efficient service, both in instructional design as well in the development of the course itself. Her work was of excellent quality and our end client was really happy with the final product! Helen maintained regular communication throughout the project, and I always found her to be upbeat and solution-oriented.
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!
