We are deeply passionate about aspiration and the instinct to be more. Through our lived experience we want to ask the difficult questions of both people and organisations that realise better outcomes. Are you performing in the way you want to and is the organisation supporting your career and continued personal & professional development? Are you an organisation that values people and meaningful conversations about what matters most? If so, we want to be a part of your story and impact on your high-level goals and your people in an increasingly complex world, that needs every authentic leader it can get.

Helen Hourican

Helen founded H-Training in 1989 and was a pioneer of learning and development in Ireland at the time, leading the the business in a very interesting time as Ireland modernised and became a hotbed of foreign direct investment. Helen grew her team significantly and opened offices in Cork City and later Glanmire. Her clients were extensive and she serviced major contracts for various government departments along with mentoring senior leaders around strategic initiatives. 

She oversaw a series of bold changes in her time as Managing Director of H-Training and moved to a remote working arrangement in 2006, which was, like so much of what she did, well ahead of the curve. Helen has impacted the lives of thousands of clients at all levels and is well regarded across a very eclectic mix of both workplaces and society. Her humorous and direct approach was revered by many and the H-Training team is proud to shepherd her legacy into the digital age and beyond. Helen retired in 2020 due to ill health, but continues to inspire us all, with how gracefully she has continued on.
