“Helen is a highly experienced and competent broadcast journalist with an extensive track record in reporting international affairs. Her language skills have been frequently put to good use both in the newsroom and out in the field. She is extremely hard-working, knows her way around a story and you can throw her into any breaking news situation and she’ll know exactly what to do and, thanks to an enviable contacts book, who to call. She can be relied upon to deliver always to deadline. In the years I’ve worked with her at the BBC, I can say that she is a great asset to any newsroom as well as being a very personable and effective member of the news team.”
Rob Cole, News Intake Editor, BBC News.
