Profile

Helen Cooke, OD and Organisational Effectiveness Expert. 

Helen began her career as an HR generalist, leading resourcing, employee relations, business partnering and HR analytics teams.  But she realised that her real interest lay in organisation development, which she describes as “helping organisations be great places to work so that they can deliver outstanding products and services to customers”.
She worked for 20 years in the NHS, during which time she created award winning EAPs, managed complex organisation design and change projects, and led culture and behavioural change programmes.  She then moved to the financial services sector, working with household insurers Domestic and General to create a customer-first culture and build engagement across the UK and international business.  Since leaving D&G, she has worked as a consultant with a particular specialism in culture change.  She has supported membership organisations, fintech companies and tech startups to build organisational effectiveness through their people.
