About Page Helen Hartley

Helen Hartley has a strong belief in creating frameworks for success. Her consulting skills facilitate pragmatic and practical possibilities that consider the operating environment of the business, including the industrial context. The world of work has become very complex and Helen’s extensive work experience enables her to provide creative solutions to complex HR issues.

To that extent, she has been a confidant, partner and coach to CEO’s, Managing Directors and Senior Managers enabling them to develop professionally and personally which in turn allows them to responsibly drive the results required in a rigorous business enterprise.

Helen understands that making personal and professional change takes an enormous commitment. With a belief that you can only champion growth in others to the extent to which you are prepared to grow yourself, she is a lifelong learner who has amassed an impressive level of knowledge, skill and qualifications. You see, Helen started her working life as a hairdresser, owned two salons, studied at university while working full time in a job that had a very heavy domestic travel load while raising two daughters. She was the first married woman (with children) appointed to a senior management role and transferred halfway across the country.

Literally, having started at the bottom she understands the impact business and HR decisions can have on the frontline staff. As such, she encourages her clients to expand their self-awareness.

Helen has a strong senior generalist HR background, including Strategic Planning, Organisational Development, Managing Performance, Learning and Development, Online-Learning, Reward and Recognition, Change Management, Employee and Industrial Relations.

Her work draws on her extensive domestic and international HR experience and has worked for such notable companies as Schwarzkopf, Levi Strauss, and Duty-Free Stores owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH Group). Helen has worked in the United States, New Zealand, Germany, and India and Asia where she has facilitated or co-facilitated at both the strategic and tactical level.

Helen partners with other suitably qualified and experienced HR professionals within her HR network to achieve your results.

You will find Helen and her associates approach refreshing. It’s about what can be done do as opposed to what can’t!
