Our team

Helen Andrews - SynNovator

Helen’s career began at Synectics where she was a junior facilitator, developing the creative edge for clients in sessions to stimulate new thinking.  She worked on various projects in the UK, Europe, USA and China. Her main focus was on new product development as a part of a team that helped clients to uncover new consumer insights and to develop new services and products off the back of those insights. She used her illustration skills to visualise product ideas and business concepts as they emerged in the sessions.

Facilitation and Innovation work

Helen now works with SynNovation, where she facilitates sessions to take clients on a creative journey from problem or task through to fresh, new solutions and action plans. Helen is passionate about the SynNovation way and the energy that collaboration and teamwork generates. She is also responsible for maintaining the website, branding and social media presence of the company.
