"Thank you for the superb sales training. We were new to the bridal industry and struggling to make sales.

Your training gave us the confidence in selling our beautiful dresses. You highlighted what we needed to be done in order to change appointments into sales.

Your easy approach and non-judgmental way put all of us at ease. Since the training, we have increased our sales hugely and we look forward to having our refresher course in the near future."

"Investing in Sales Training with Helena is by far the best investment we have made.

We recoup the cost of the Course just by having Helena there on the first day of Training when she is observing and guiding the sales process."

"We’ve worked with Helena for many years; she’s fabulous! She has a thorough understanding of our industry, of bridal customers and what our retail team are up against on the shop floor.

Her NLP knowledge and bridal sales experience is second to none, she’s straight talking and really knows her sales stuff which I love."
