03, June 2015: It’s a new dawn, a new day and a new life for intrepid Helen O’Flaherty, Client Delivery Manager for Leamington based Notion Business Coaching, as she heads off to China to establish Notion’s new office in Shanghai!
“In 2013 we established our Global HQ in Leamington Spa, and since then our feet haven’t really touched the ground”, explains Dominic Ashley-Timms, Managing Director of Notion. “We’ve more than doubled our team to service the increase in demand for our services - changing the culture within organisations and teaching leaders and managers how to adapt their management at a fast pace to be able to operate within the global economy. Nowhere is this more relevant than in SE Asia, where we’ve already worked in 5 countries, so when Helen said she was up for the challenge to help us build our office in Shanghai, we were delighted!”
As for Helen herself, she’s been actively preparing for her move to China - “I’m really looking forward to working in a new culture and supporting some of our international clients locally”, said Helen, although she also admitted that, despite the move, some things won’t change… “I’m a massive rugby fan and support the Wasps so I’ve already managed to build a connection with the Shanghai Rugby Club…” she explained, “…and I’ve also been stockpiling Maltesers and Marmite which you can’t seem to get out there!”
We wish Notion, and Helen in particular, all the best in her new adventure.
