About Helen

I’ve spent ten years working in various of in-house and agency internal communication and project management roles before setting up HD Comms in 2016. Most recently working in-house at Grant Thornton, I’ve also delivered projects for Royal Mail Group, 3i, Tesco, ScottishPower, Barclays, Pinsent Masons, Oxford University Press, The World Gold Council, The Guardian, Skills for Health, SR Technics, Sainsbury’s, TMF Group, Jems Recruitment, Elmbridge Borough Council, Creative People and Places, Alive with ideas and All Things IC. 

I share my insights on internal communications in my blog and on Twitter at @helendeverell. My work has been featured in publications and websites including allthingsic.com, CIPR Inside, Creativity in internal communications report, alivewithideas.com and Ragan.com. 

I’m a committee member of CIPR Inside and in 2017 was involved in conducting research into how CEOs value internal communication. I also help organise the Institute of Internal Communication’s (IoIC) annual conference and judge awards for the IoIC and the European Association of Internal Communication (FEIEA).

I have spoken at various events including:

  • the CIPR Inside annual conference – presenting Making it Count research
  • the IoIC summer party 2017 – diversity of thought in organisations
  • the IoIC annual conference 2014, a panel discussion about introverts and extroverts in internal communication
  • Ask the guru event run by CIPR inside – implementing enterprise social networks.

In 2012, I was listed as one of the Institute of Internal Communication’s (IoIC) top 30 under 30 internal communicators and have also received The Kathie Jones Rising Star Award of Excellence.
