Helen joined the marketing team in 2020 as membership coordinator; her role is sponsored by The Rank Foundation, through the Time to Shine internship. Previously she worked in Editorial on academic journals, managing several publications on public health. However, she made the change to Real Ideas and working for a social enterprise, as she is passionate about supporting the community. She hopes to bring her experience in publishing to membership and comms, whilst supporting the creation of a new endeavor for Real Ideas- membership. Her role in membership links across all of Real Ideas and its activities, to allow individuals and businesses to access co-working spaces, studios, workshops, events, advice, support, as well as to become part of a growing community.
