Helen Butler Coaching

Your most valuable asset is your people, so it’s a no-brainer that you need every single one to be operating at their best and achieving their full potential.

I work with the whole spectrum of job roles within agencies because I believe passionately that coaching is not just for senior leadership roles, it can have a dramatic effect on bottom lines at all levels and in all functions, helping to foster a dynamic and collaborative working culture.

“Naked Ideas is a small, but fast growing creative agency with a smart and highly focussed workforce. Niki joined us in 2015 to fulfil a full spectrum of HR and people-related functions. Her experience has proved invaluable. She has implemented a wide variety of schemes for us to better streamline and improve our hiring processes, looking at staff attraction and retention initiatives as well as encouraging learning and fostering the skills and interests of our existing staff base. She’s very driven and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
