Helen leads Inspire’s Corporate Finance team. Her team supports Inspire’s entrepreneurial clients through fund raising exercises, business disposals, acquisitions and restructuring exercises. Helen also support clients through strategic review processes. 

Helen joined Inspire in May 2013.  Previously she worked for a Top 4 firm of accountants for 10 years and then spent 10 years working in industry in the insurance sector.

Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1995, Helen worked in audit and corporate finance functions whilst in practice. Helen's corporate finance work included supporting clients with due diligence exercises (acquirer and vendor), working capital reviews, listing readiness and management buy outs among others - working with key stakeholders throughout the process.

Whilst working for a large insurer Helen gained valuable experience and broad business knowledge in the development of strategy, marketing, public policy and change management.

Outside of work Helen likes to spend time with her family; her two young daughters keep her busy. As far as she's concerned, there's nothing greater than being outside as much as possible, whether it be hill walking, mountain biking, in the garden or at her family's beach hut.


Firm description

Inspire was formed by Warren Munson in 2004. The intention was to fill a gap in the market and create a unique firm of advisers providing a service for entrepreneurs, owner managers  and their businesses that was focussed on delivering a proactive, relationship-based approach to clients.

Inspire has stayed committed to that ethos and has grown into an independent and innovative, multi-award winning advisory firm which invests time with its clients to establish  strong and lasting relationships and provide a knowledgeable, ‘can do’ attitude. This advisory-led service is supported by a professional and cost-efficient compliance service delivered by a specialist dedicated team, making it a fresh, original and effective solution for all of the needs of its ever growing UK and International client base.

Inspire's office is based in  Poole, Dorset where its Directors and Staff of just over 40 people provide a full range of advisory, taxation, audit, accounting and international consultancy services to entrepreneurs and owner-managed businesses whose needs and requirements are often as diverse as the businesses they are involved in.

The Directors and staff of Inspire come from a variety of backgrounds within the profession, commerce and government service. This gives the firm a breadth and depth of experience that is unrivalled for a firm of its size. The firm has specialist expertise in areas including the Arts and Media, Technology, Food and Beverages, Corporate and Personal International Taxation, Intellectual Property and Technology Taxation, Mergers and Acquisitions, Business Financing and Strategic Planning, Corporate Finance and Employer Solutions.
