Corinne Wilkins – Partnerships Director, News UK

“I have worked with Bec Development over a number of years; from team away-days, workshops to personal coaching. An understanding of the industry combined with a passion for learning and development have always ensured they remain front of mind. Personally, Helen has always offered sound guidance and advice throughout my career, bringing sensitivity, great listening as well as infectious energy and enthusiasm. An experienced and trusted partner who I would have no hesitation in recommending.”

Rebecca Ikin – Marketing Director, Penguin Random House

“I’ve returned to Bec Development many times during my publishing career. They are passionate about learning and development and they combine that brilliantly with years of understanding of publishing and media, and the needs and pressures within the industry. I like their approach – forward thinking, generous, smart and always engaging.”

Zoe Watkins – Group Account Director, Ambition Communications

“After attending the last two breakfast sessions, I’m itching to sign up for one of their coaching courses. I can imagine just how useful a few days spent in the company of Bec Development would be, both for me and the wider agency. It’s good to come up for air from the day job at times, and actually realise that no matter what level you are at, there is always more to learn.”

Amanda Davie – Digital Marketing and Management Consultant, Founder of Reform and Mentoring Digital Minds

“Bec Development provided me with a fantastic toolbox of interpersonal and professional skills which have been invaluable as I have made the transition into management and business leadership – from employee to employer. They really have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to identifying – and helping to tackle – some of the challenges that employers face with nurturing and retaining digital talent.”

Adam Humphrey – Marketing Communications Director, Harper Collins

“Helen Tiffany is inspirational, positive, and a fantastic communicator. Her insights, coaching and tools markedly helped my own development, as well as my colleagues across at Random House. I would love to work with her again in the future.”

Chris Cooke – Publishing Director, St John Patrick Publishers

“Helen has been a mentor to me throughout my career in media and her guidance and advice has been invaluable to me on my journey from sales executive to publisher and business owner. I can’t recommend Helen highly enough. Her energy, enthusiasm and expertise are inspiring.”

Sam Woodley – Learning and Development, JCDecaux

“I couldn’t have asked for a better person to support our business than Helen Tiffany at Bec Development – she has a unique skill for building trust and rapport quickly. Helen’s personal touch was very much needed and her experience along with expertise was instantly recognised.”

Emma Roach – Managing Director, Gramophone

“I got so much out of Helen’s workshops. She really understands the editorial process and the kinds of personalities that go into making up a magazine. She didn’t allow us to fox her either; she’s seriously sharp and was always one step ahead.”

Emma Johnson – Head of T&D, Mediacom

“Helen is universally liked and trusted by all levels of our business, from senior management to up and coming managers. This is in part down to her sense of fun, her no nonsense hands on approach and her realistic solutions to everyday issues. Helen is exceedingly generous with her time, will always go the extra mile and comes up with unique propositions that fit the individual business and its need.”

Karin Seymour – Sales Director, News UK

“I have worked with Bec Development and Helen Tiffany particularly, for many years. When seeking a provider for my management or leadership development courses, they’re always my first choice. Their ability to build a rapport with people, understand their needs and so to enable them quickly to grow make Dec Development courses excellent investment in both time and money.”

Andy Whitaker – Finance & Operations Director, ITV Breakfast

“I found Helen a positive and supportive coach who helped me improve my management skills for my benefit and that of the business. I learnt a number of new techniques which I continue to successfully apply on an on-going basis even though our coaching sessions have now ended.”

Rudi Symons – Talent Manager, Zenithoptimedia

“Bec Development ran six courses for us covering both appraisal fundamentals and motivational appraisals. Both courses received fantastic feedback. Since this training, we’ve noticed that more appraisals have taken place than ever before and our managers now seem so much clearer on how to follow best practice when conducting such an important meeting.”
