Prior to her current role, Helen worked with business units for the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. Helen led a global team and engaged with business partners to drive strategic direction, facilitate cultural change, and enhance skills to deliver on organisational priorities for the UK Government. In addition, Helen was the lead coach and facilitator for the development of senior Diplomats; one aspect of her role was to prepare UK Ambassadors to lead a diverse workforce at British Embassies and Consulates overseas.
