Mustard Adviser, Helen Philips, is delighted to be named "Go To Business Adviser" in the 2021 Zokit Go To Business Awards.
The judges in the 2021 Zokit Go To Business Awards were looking for evidence that Helen demonstrates excellence in her field, backed up by some great client testimonials, and engagement with the wider business community.
From the start of the pandemic, Helen could see that her clients would need help to steer them through uncharted waters. She gave generously of her time and helped her clients to pivot their businesses.
Helen’s clients were able to achieve significant growth last year, in spite of the challenging business conditions.
“As soon as the depth of the Covid pandemic was realised on my industry I took stock of all recurring costs, subscriptions were paused, accounting was brought back in house and a new financial forecast was drawn up. Helen and the Mustard services were not one of the elements to be cut. I quickly realised that while her insights pre Covid had been valuable, her contribution during a potentially rocky period has been invaluable”
Under normal circumstances, Mustard Advisers work with businesses who are already established, and want to take their business to the next level.
But these were not normal circumstances.
Help for smaller businesses
Helen could see businesses who were not ready to become Mustard clients, but still needed help to deal with the challenges they were facing. Above all, they needed a sounding board. She offered free workshops to businesses affected by the pandemic, and is proud to have helped businesses thrive and even to create new jobs.
