Helen Tones

What people have said about me:

Helen has supported my business  …particularly with delivery of  the New Enterprise Allowance programme in Bradford,  … involved with other projects which she has picked up at short notice as the increasing demands of an ever-increasing project workload have necessitated. Always flexible and good-humoured, Helen’s attention to detail is second to none. She is strongly-self managing and has been an excellent asset to be able to draw on to deliver high quality projects to our customers. When considering working with … staff, Helen comes very, very highly recommended indeed

 … holding my hand and taking me through the social media marketing maze I find so impossible. She is very practical, thoughtful, full of suggestions, ideas and enthusiasm, but she is aways happy to work at my pace. With Helen the job is always done excellently and absolutely on time. I can’t recommend her too highly”

“Helen has provided me with advice and direction which has been second to none with setting up my new business. I am really grateful for the connections and information that Helen has provided me. I would not hesitate to recommend Helen to anyone requiring business support services.”

“Helen has a broad skill-set in which her thoroughness and tenacity particularly show through. She possesses a handy combination of keen attention to detail whilst maintaining an imaginative and creative bent, always open to ideas. Above all Helen is a born “completer finisher” and will see a job through

“Having worked with and for a period directly for Helen .., I was always supported and encouraged by her. Helen demanded a first class performance and acknowledged the potential she saw in me. She was always very organised and driven and extremely focused…. someone I can rely on. Oh and Helen has a great sense of humour and always made me laugh!”

Helen is one of the most organised people I have ever worked with, with operational skills way above the norm. Her attention to detail is strong and her communication skills excellent, always managing to hit the required deadlines in spite of difficult conditions. She had ideal skills to mentor/drive Account Management functions and made a great Bid Manager.”

Helen’s various roles within Sales …demonstrated her aptitude to take a client’s needs and consistently deliver against these, often in tight timescales.   She has strong account management skills and a tenacity and perseverance to ensure things get delivered on time and to the level required by clients. She is a complete finisher and her attention to detail ensures that a professional job is always done.”
