Helen is an experienced fundraising and marketing professional with over twelve years’ experience working within the not for profit sector both in the UK and the Netherlands. Driven and self-motivated, she sets out to achieve the best in anything she undertakes.
Over the last twelve years Helen has worked for a number of not-for-profit organisations in the UK and the Netherlands.
During seven years working for Challenges (Un)Limited Helen helped to build the Charity Challenge brand from inception. During this time Charity Challenge helped to change the face of UK fundraising by opening up sponsored overseas expeditions to charities of all sizes and individuals alike. Through Charity Challenge Helen worked with hundreds of UK charities and senior fundraisers, helping them to raise millions of pounds for their causes.
After re-locating to the Netherlands almost four years ago, Helen continued to work in the not-for-profit sector engaging in marketing, business development and corporate liaison roles. By continuing her work in the Netherlands with not for profit organisations, Helen now has first-hand knowledge of the requirements in the Dutch market and is enthusiastic about the potential for this sector.
Helen’s focus now is to help Dutch charities to move forward and develop strategies and campaigns aimed at the modern donator, maximising return on investment and improving retention of supporters
