Our Tabono Expert team would not be complete without a business strategy and funding professional, and here she is! We are delighted to announce that Helen Steel of Streamlion Consulting has agreed to join our team. So read on, to get to know her better!

Helen Steel

Helen currently runs her own business consultancy – Streamlion Consulting – where she helps businesses grow during their start-up and scale-up phases. She specialises in providing business advice, strategy, funding and planning services.
In addition, she is an Ambassador for Transmit Start-Ups, and has also developed a network of private “Angel” investors. This allows her to support entrepreneurs in securing equity funding for companies embarking on a high growth phase.

Now with over 30 years’ experience in general business advice, Helen owned and managed her first small business at the age of 20. Leaving the corporate world in January 2015, her last role was Global Account Director for HP, where she managed accounts with TCVs in excess of £500M.

Helen lives in Cookham with her partner and 11-year-old son. She has a BSc (Hons) in Microbial Genetics and an MBA, and is a County and National Masters swimmer.

The team at Tabono HQ can also recommend Helen from our own, first-hand experience! We have been lucky enough to work with Helen directly on the growth of our own business since its inception. She supported us in applying for and securing our Start Up Loan, and has been invaluable as a mentor and Adviser ever since.

Helen will be contributing to the second, business-focussed part of the Tabono programme, bringing her expertise to our Business Planning & Strategy module.
