Leadership & Communication Specialist



"We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses. Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people." - - Carl Jung

    The common thread that I pull through each of my services is the art and science of influencing others from first understanding self. Specifically, the auto-pilot strategies of self that contribute to the negative outcomes being experienced, regardless of position and numbers. When we expand our awareness and take on new concepts and skills, we begin the growth (change) process. 

    The foundation of effective, ethical and empowering influence is understanding the needs of self and those we lead and/or serve and how to manage them in a way

that creates cohesion, collaboration and ongoing development. By learning how to acknowledge and understand all needs, whilst influencing those needs that keep your team small (such as un-resourceful validation or control...), you start the process of evolving your leadership and empowering your culture whilst improving results. You and your team are then primed to deliver optimal customer outcomes, through consistent quality experiences.

    People require psychological safety in the workplace in order to produce their best results. The leader (and the leadership team) is responsible for creating and maintaining this. The best news is... there is methodology and process to it.

Client Feedback

I respect that many clients prefer anonimity

I was fortunate to be coached and mentored by Helen over a period of 18 months.  


Helen is truly a motivating and inspirational person. For me, the coaching experience was incredibly beneficial and professionally and personally life changing. Helen was able to heighten my sense of leadership awareness; not just my leadership, but the potential of others.


Over a relatively short period, I was able to extend myself beyond preconceived boundaries. I gained a new perspective on what leadership really was and every day now, I draw upon my coaching experience. Helen provided me with ‘matter of fact’ guidance and simple insights to seemly complex matters. She consistently challenged me to always look at situations from an alternate perspective in order to work towards positive “win- win –win” solutions.


I was able to work with Helen “one on one”, but feel her real strength to add immense value and deliver fundamental change would be working with leadership groups to deliver a common understanding of human potential within their organisation.

I've wanted to learn public speaking skills for a long time.


I knew there was a craft, a method and for some time I checked out various options, yet none of them hit the mark for me with what I wanted to help me with the learning and growth I needed.


I am so excited I did my training with Helen Treloar. Wow! The content and the delivery was exceptional.

Evolved Steps Coaching

Helen has helped me to achieve significant professional growth in the year that I have

been working with her.


From our first meeting onwards, she has challenged my thinking and default behaviours, through adept questioning and an ability to help me see things from many different perspectives; this has helped me to unlock new potential and achieve outcomes that would not have otherwise been possible.

Her approach to coaching has been instrumental in effecting change in how I engage with those I work with to achieve the best outcomes, how I lead to realise the fullest potential of my team and how I approach problem solving and the challenges that arise in the day to day corporate environment.

Thank you Helen.

Helen Treloar is a master of what she does.

I engaged Helen as my coach, and was continually motivated and enlightened by her ability to cut through to my self-limiting mindsets, and shift them for the better. She is real and willing to share as much as you, in navigating the best way through the many triumphs and trials of being a small business owner, manager and entrepreneur.

I really valued Helen’s ability to work in an agile and responsive fashion, to reach clear goals in every session and give me some tools to walk away with every time. My business sales grew by 30% in the first year of working with Helen, which are conducted predominantly through “1 hour of power” via Skype.

If you are looking to excel in a professional capacity, I can recommend Helen Treloar as a valuable investment. I have also had the pleasure of witnessing Helen lead small group NLP workshops and be a fabulously engaging Master of Ceremonies for a business women’s seminar, which she handled with a mixture of professionalism and authentic warmth.


Amber Daines

Bespoke Communication Expert 

Helen helped me transform my leadership at a time where there was enormous market and internal pressures.


Focusing on people and my ability to lead them through the challenges we were facing, I used simple techniques Helen had taught me to both deliver business outcomes but more importantly support and enable those around me.


I'm enormously grateful for Helen's kind and considered approach and feel I'm better at work and at home having worked with Helen!


Sarah Flemmings

Business Manager AGL 

Helen is perceptive, down-to-earth, and realistic.

Helen cuts through crap like a hot knife through butter. I could not think of a more trustworthy business partner than Helen, and I thoroughly recommend her professional capability.

I would be happy and honoured to accept personal contact as her referee.

All the best, Helen.


Rob Heselev

Executive Partner Gartner

Helen is an experienced and professional Executive Coach.

She is commercially savvy and also a caring and understanding person.

My time with Helen as a leadership coach is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career.


I would highly recommend Helen’s services to people who want to challenge themselves and take their career to the next level.


Steven Leong

CFO Equiem 

Helen, I looked for the best and found you.

Working with you has been beyond what I thought I could expect from someone who’s the best, it’s been so much more. It’s not just your experience, approach, and ability to solve problems in a heartbeat that have been most valuable to my business, it’s your passion, insight, and more than anything else, your incredible commitment to me and my organisation, the success we strive for and the difference we are committed to continue making.

The path to the next level of my success is clearer, stronger and more rewarding with you on the team.

I met Helen through YSPN where she was volunteering as a Mentor in Senior Leadership Communications. She mentored me for 8 weeks and at the end of the course I could feel the difference in myself. I had improved my communication skills and I was able to connect with people at a deeper level. It was all possible because of her!

I would say Helen is exceptionally good at mentoring and helping people to identify their limiting beliefs. She is literally amazing, professional and someone you crave to be mentored by.


Ramandeep Singh

Business Analyst

Frankston City Council

In one word, Helen is simply 'amazing'! She has inspired me on so many levels. I am a better speaker and leader today, because of her.

I am also really grateful that she has shared her time and expertise with members of GRiT Leadership, a NFP social enterprise, empowering culturally diverse professionals to lead with impact, through her series of masterclasses on effective communication and the art of story telling. She can connect with literally anyone and make them feel included in all discussions.

I have also used Helen's services to seek clarity and focus when establishing GRiT Leadership (a social enterprise). Helen has an amazing ability to simplify complex ideas and develop strategic plans to grow business.

Helen has a strong combination of commercial acumen and people skills (not forgetting her humour) which makes building high performing teams and managing projects a breeze for her.

I am eternally grateful to have crossed paths with Helen! She is truly an inspiration.


Teeshal Bal FIEAust CPEng


Social Ent. Founder  

We were fortunate to have Helen deliver the keynote address at the Hewlett-Packard South Pacific Finance Career Fair.

Helen is a dynamic and engaging speaker, who captivated the audience and inspired them to think differently about their careers and lives more broadly. She called on the audience to create a clear picture of what they want from their career; to take ownership; prioritise it as a goal and go after it. She encouraged a more proactive approach, rather than simply reacting to the environment they find themselves in. She warned the audience not to be limited by the perceived barriers to success and personal fulfilment.


It was a highly entertaining and interactive session in which she gave tangible examples of the concepts covered and encouraged members of the audience to share their personal experiences and views. We highly recommend Helen as a keynote for your organisation and event.

Struggling to deal with some issues at work, I first met Helen through a recommendation from a CEO of another business. My major issues, that I had been trying to deal with for over ten years, disappeared in one session!

Helen and I then continued to work together on other issues and I loved her services so much, I then personally engaged her to work with me on my business goals. 

Helen is a fabulous listener, asks exactly the right questions and most importantly stays calm, even when you are in a total whirlwind. 

If you are looking for a coach who is down to earth, smart, experienced in business and life and will help you to get results, then I highly recommend Helen.

There comes a time in every business when you can’t see the wood for the trees… Years of being in my business and not enough on my business – or so the saying goes! 

Success had come easy to us in our early years, the market was healthy, we were a small team and energy was high – fast forward to a tough employment market, higher expenses, extra staff and a strategy for growth that wasn’t implemented.

Helen came into my business at a time when the tough decisions needed to be made and a new set of eyes on the business needed to be had. 

Her straight, matter of fact approach assisted us to make the transition from a business that was in slow motion to one that is now fast forward.  Effective coaching and mentoring, Balcony view observation and sound advice from Hel has given us back our MOJO! 

Thanks H, your wise words and support have been invaluable!

I recently had the pleasure to see Helen in action at a Group seminar on Business in the 21st Century.


The attendees were women entrepreneurs, business owners and executives from large corporations. Helen brought humour and a level of authenticity that resounded with all.


Her insights about the power of self, valuing the contributions of family and finding your "ideal average day, consistently" was a very powerful gift to leave with the audience.


Thank you Helen, the time spent with you was truly enlightening and fun.

Lifestyle Communications Specialist

Helen is the ultimate people manager.


As our CEO for 21 years, Helen built a culture here at Spartan that is the envy of so many other large companies.


Tenacious, courageous, caring and highly self-motivated, Helen has amazing human intuition, almost as if she can tell you what side of the bed you will wake up on tomorrow!


Couple that with her strategic business acumen, and you have a remarkable leader that I would highly recommend and have benefitted from working for.

GM Spartan P/L

The modern world is a fusion of two environments – cyber and real, which can make for many challenges.

The difference between a person’s on-line and real world persona for example can be stark. Character traits and promises that are espoused online can be found wanting face-to-face. 

To be consistent in one’s person and message regardless of setting is not a difficult task should that person be authentic – the real deal.

One such individual is Helen Treloar.

Helen’s behaviours never deviate in their professional and genuine approach whatever the backdrop, which means you can trust in the suggestion and in turn be sure of the path forward. 

I hope you enjoy exploring the various components of before engaging Helen in the real world, where you will find (as I have), that her highly learned abilities to provide coaching, brainstorming and development experiences are quite simply invaluable.

Helen is one of the most inspirational and talented managers that I have worked with in my career.

The respect and support she gives to her team inspires them to reach their goals and in the process of creating an open environment that nurtures a high performance culture. 

Helen is able to facilitate and foster a culture of creativity and innovation within the company, whilst being aware of the over-arching purpose of the company and its objectives.

Penny Votzourakis (ex TCI)

Helen is an inspiring mentor for the entire team.


During her time she has transformed all aspects of the office and provided a positive environment and culture for the team.


Helen has exceptional communication and interpersonal skills and could quickly identify areas of possible conflict and address these. She showed great honesty and integrity in her position and was trusted by the team as the person in management to talk to about any advice, concerns or issues.


Personally I found having Helen as my Manager gave me a great opportunity for personal growth and development given her experience and positive and supportive manner.


It is my great hope in the future to be able to work with Helen again.

Natasha Ramm (ex Enabling)

You have built the most amazing team at Cranlana.


Thank you for all the efforts you have put into The Cranlana Programme, as well as the guidance, coaching, support and management that has allowed me to grow tremendously in my role.


It's been an absolute pleasure working with you.

Shelly Amir (ex Cranlana)

If you are looking for the most incredible leadership skills, the ability to create a team of self-motivated, eager, happy employees that will go the extra mile to achieve all company goals - you have the person.


Successful teams are what Helen builds, leading by example and years of outstanding growth in a tough industry.


She is the BEST out there!

Marilyn Wallace-Harrison

(ex Spartan P/L)

I had the pleasure of working for Helen (when she was CEO, Spartan) and saw first-hand how it is possible to build an inspiring culture in an organisation.


Whether it is professional advice, strategic business direction or personal improvement, I would highly recommend Helen. She has helped me in all of these areas and to develop my leadership qualities and skills.


I highly value her expertise and our friendship.

Harry Samuels (ex Spartan P/L)

I report directly to Hel Treloar at Cranlana. Hel is strategic, fair, clear and an excellent operations and general manager. She is respected by her team not because of hierarchy but because she welcomes ideas, commends initiative, offers sound, practical and achievable goals, ideas and advice.


I have observed Hel's interaction with clients. She asks the right questions and listens. Hel goes beyond to ensure her team is cared for and aims to create an environment where we thrive as professionals and individuals.


I enjoy working with Hel as she brings a fun and strong leadership style to her team.


There is a lot to learn just by observing her in action.

Caroline Gibson (ex Cranlana)

I have known Helen for nearly 10 years and we have worked together in various projects. Helen was my GM at a Coach Training organisation, where I was a senior sales manager.

Helen is a top class professional in every capacity. She has exceptional personal & professional development skills. Her leadership, relationship & communications skills are second to none.


In addition to general business leadership, she uses her expertise in individual & team development to bring out the best in her people and associated suppliers / contractors. Under Helen's leadership, sales grew, customer satisfaction grew, product quality improved (from the trainers she attracted, due to her good name in the industry) and product support collateral was met with extremely positive feedback from our consumers. The culture she created was high performing & fun to work in.


Helen is a vibrant, energetic, loyal, trustworthy, empathetic leader. A focused, results orientated person who puts in 100 percent every time.

Georgina Turewicz (ex FMCLA)

With an infectiously enthusiastic personality along with excellent communication skills, Helen is an effective & motivating team leader.


She offers structured and logical solutions that integrate the latest technology and strive for results.

Jacqueline Dinan (ex Cranlana)

Helen's dedication, passion, and rigour make her a valuable asset to any team's leadership. An empowering individual, who pushes those under her guidance and direction to step up, succeed, and grow, all while nurturing their development into serious assets.

Helen's approach is guided by an extensive knowledge base of psychological leadership techniques, emotionally intelligent management, and razor-sharp business acumen, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with.
