About Helen

I’ve had a 15 year career as an author, journalist and broadcaster. I’ve written for every major UK newspaper and appeared as a commentator on news programmes such as Sky News, Five Live, Good Morning Britain, BBC News Channel and more.

As an author I’ve written three books, one of which was a WHSmith best-seller and one which was long-listed for William Hill Sports Book of the Year.

While still an active journalist, I use my media experience to help others get into the media. I work with c-suite executives, entrepreneurs, academics, authors and other public figures.

I develop strategies for clients to become thought-leaders in their profession. Typically that includes placing opinion pieces in prestigious publications, securing keynote or panel talks,  developing book ideas, promoting a thesis or white paper and building a social media presence.

I work closely with clients to develop media-worthy ideas and allign their online persona so they can be seen as  a go-to commentator in their industry.

Five Live: Having children is an environment issue

Five Live: Having children is an environment issue

When female racing car driver Leilana Munter said people should consider not having children for environmental reasons there was uproar. Why do people get so het up when a woman announces she doesn't want children? 

Media Training & PR Training

I’m a founding partner of  Nine Media Training. We’re a small team of experts working in journalism, broadcasting and comms so we specialise in giving the inside track on how the media works to PR, media relations and comms teams. We run public training courses and bespoke in-house training. 

We also deliver practical media training to senior spokespeople at businesses, charities and universities. Whether it’s preparing for a crisis or learning how to steer an interview to deliver the messages you want to convey we can help.

All our training is 100% bespoke for every client.


The perk of being an author is that I am often asked to deliver informative and inspirational talks and take part in debates.

I’ve done lots on the changing trends of modern relationships (because of my first two books!) – well who doesn’t love to ponder about love? More recently though I’ve been giving inspirational talks about transcending from glam city girl to tough triathlete (thanks to my latest book!). And informative workshops on pitching to the press.

Credits include Institute of Arts and Ideas, Intelligence Squared, Stylist Live and the WI. If you’d like to get in touch about delivering a talk or chairing a debate, feel free to contact me.
