About Helen

In a 15 year career as an author, journalist and broadcaster, I wrote 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 occasional journalist, I put my media experience to more use in helping others get into the media. I work with CEOs, entrepreneurs, academics, business coaches, authors and other public figures helping them develop media-worthy ideas and become a revered commentator in their industry.

You can hear some media pitching advice in my Media Insider Podcast.

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? 


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.
