Our guests were truly inspired, and motivated to achieve, when they heard Helen Walbey speak at the Warwickshire, Coventry & Solihull Woman Who…Awards in May
Helen inspired our audience as she shared her business journey, including her personal highs and lows. Helen, is the founder and MD of Recycle Scooters, the FSB Health & Diversity Chair the Chair of the FSB’s national Women in Enterprise Taskforce.
I have always worked in typically male dominated industries, and I love being able to promote a positive and successful female image to my work colleagues. Previously I worked in Continuous Improvement in a large multi national building company. Now I own and run Recycle Scooters Ltd and I am the only woman in Wales to own a motorcycle salvage company.
