Helen Barclay
Helen BarclayManaging Director
Helen has over twenty-five years’ experience in financial services, in roles from Branch Management to Project and Programme management. She has specialised in managing strategic change, delivery of strategic programmes and projects, establishing programme offices and has operated as Resource Manager for a large PPPM community, with responsibility for resource allocation, recruitment and career development for project professionals.

In 2006, Helen set up Tower Consulting Europe Ltd and has worked with blue chip organisations across all sectors ever since, including Airbus, National Trust, Rolls Royce, Shell, Bombardier Transportation and RBS. Until March 2017 she was an Associate Director for Human Systems International and is currently an Associate for ThinkingitBetter and The Project Leaders Network.

Although a PPPM and Change generalist, her specialisms revolve around the ‘People’ aspects of the profession, including capability assessment, improvement & recruitment of people, teams and sponsors, Masterclasses, events and bespoke assignments.

She is a skilled facilitator and a strong communicator, and has significant experience of leading teams across multiple assignments in EMEA countries.

During her 11 years with Human Systems Europe, Helen and I worked together on many assignments. As a result, I can vouch for her professional approach, her excellent relationship-building skills with clients, her talents as a facilitator and consultant and her breadth and depth of knowledge about project, programme and portfolio management. She is especially knowledgeable about all aspects of Talent Management and HR in a project-based organisational setting.

On top of all this, I found Helen to be a delightful colleague to work with, who always delivered excellent value for money to clients.

Helen was involved right from the very start of the development of project management within the National Trust, providing best practice process and benchmarking through assignments, support and advice plus shared learning opportunities through her links to other organisations and individuals. Helen has a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience from her many years in project management and continues to be a “critical friend” and sounding board for me as our approach to project management evolves and matures within the Trust.

Helen Wilderspin’s support, her wealth of knowledge and experience of Project Management good practice, has helped our organisation make positive steps on our improvement journey. She is a passionate advocate of improving project and programme management performance and an excellent coach.

Simon Mann • RNLI

I have worked closely with Helen since 2009 on a variety of complex topics. During this time our working relationship has spanned different industries and organizational contexts, but Helen has always been able to bring highly relevant and insightful experience, knowledge and learning to each situation.

Helen’s ability to design, develop and deliver tailored masterclasses and workshops to suit my needs across a wide range of themes has consistently delivered added value and learning that can be directly applied in the real world. To cite just a few examples of topics we have worked on together: Project & Programme Sponsorship, Benchmarking P&PM good practice, Learning from Experience, P&PM Competence Management.

I would not hesitate to recommend Helen and TCEL as a highly effective business partner!
