I’m Helen, the founder of Brilliant Together. I’m a proud mumpreneur, an expert at solving business problems and a fabulous listener!
At Brilliant Together we are passionate about helping small businesses launch and grow.
I know how it feels to juggle work and family
I know how it feels to have an exciting business idea but no time to make it a reality
I know how it feels to to be overwhelmed by all the blog articles & ‘experts’ out there.
I remember thinking:
“Where do I start? Who can I turn to?”
Sometimes we need a business friend to help us focus, solve problems and make plans.
My career in business strategy – working with both big & small businesses – and my experience of setting up Brilliant Together, mean I know how to help you.
I’m here to listen, advise, plan, do, support & to care. I know you need to surround yourself with genuine, skilled experts to help you get where you want to go, without compromising your small people!
The idea for Brilliant Together came when the corporate company I was working for was relocating from its Hertfordshire office to one in central London. I was surrounded by brilliantly talented parents (predominately Mums) that were all faced with the same decision:
- Do I relocate to London and compromise my family life?
- Do I try to find another corporate part-time role, within easy commute (like there are loads of them, right?!)
- Or do I retrain to do something more in line with school hours (again, unless you want to work in education there aren’t that many options here)
I decided to do something else. I decided to take redundancy and build something that enabled me to do something I do best, without compromising my life with my family. I decided to build my own business. Read more about my story here.

“A thousand thanks to Helen for her brilliant situation assessment.
She really helped me pin down my priorities and gave me the encouragement and clarity I needed to start doing something, rather than just thinking about it. ” – Lindsay Garfoot
Working together shouldn’t feel like hard work, it should feel like working with your friends.
“I would recommend Helen to any business, at any stage in their journey.
Helen has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and I found the business situation discussion, and the beautiful report a very useful stage of starting up my business.” – Kirsty-Louise Greene
In 2017 I was interviewed by the Guardian about my experience of attending the Mums Enterprise Roadshow, read Alison Coleman’s article “Roadshow leaves mums fired up and ready to pursue business dreams”
“A totally amazing & inspirational day – I feel empowered!”
The brain-child of two mums – Lucy & Lindsey – Mums Enterprise holds family-friendly events offering support & know-how for mums wanting to build a business.
I first visited the roadshow as a delegate in 2016, which gave me the courage to build my business. I returned in 2017 as an exhibitor, ready to support mums like you on your exciting journey to building a business you love!
Brilliant Together supports small business and is a proud member of local and national small business groups.
