Candidate biographies for 2019 trustees
Barnes has been home for 7 years, and by joining the BCA team of Trustees I hope to have the opportunity to contribute to our local community.
I have a creative background in music and am a keen amateur photographer. My career has gone in the opposite direction and is technology focused. Described as part geek, I enjoy helping people get the best out of technology and am great at figuring things out. I’ve been responsible for implementing new technologies and processes in various roles, and now work in the Global Technology team of a major investment bank.
I love where we live, the high street pet shop is managed by my wife who is loved by Barnes’ four legged furry friends, and I’m keen to spend time away from the city putting my personal and professional skills to good use locally.
In 2001 Barnes Pond disappeared and Helen wrote ‘The Pond’, a children’s book raising £20K. Last year she stood as a councillor and hopes to do so again. Helen is a Governor at Sheen Mount and Trustee at Home-Start. She is a mentor for The Princes Trust and a food waste campaigner for City Harvest. Helen is a Business Development Marketing Director with an MBA specialising in membership, engagement, business partnerships and events. Helen loves family, dogs and walking. Her family are in pubs so she cares about High Street ambience and getting people out enjoying themselves.
