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 now use my media experience to help others get into the media. I work with c-suite executives, entrepreneurs, academics, authors and other public figures helping them develop media-worthy ideas and become a revered commentator in their industry.

You can hear media pitching advice from my Media Insider Podcast.

Media Training & PR Training

I’m a 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.

Speaking

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? I’ve also done plenty of inspirational talks about transcending from glam city girl to tough outdoorsy triathlete (thanks to my latest book!). 

But more recently I’ve been using my media expertise to talk give talks about pitching to the media, PR strategy and thought leadership.
