About UsPreeti Helena & Malcolm Duffield

Malcolm Duffield and Preeti Helena

Helena Consulting Pty Ltd was founded on 30th October 2002 with the vision of promoting the well being of people, groups and businesses holistically.

We work with people who have achieved a certain living and working standard, and are now motivated to improve the quality of their personal as well as professional life. We take 30 plus years of business experience and personal learning and apply them to the place where the majority of adults spend much of their waking time, the work place.

We assist you as an organisation, and as an individual, to:

  • reach your full potential
  • be in charge of your life, instead of life being in charge of you
  • understand and embrace change
  • develop initiatives

Our passion is to contribute to a business world that is more effective, more fun and, above all, more human.

As a result of her rich experience, Preeti Helena’s approach is Straight to the Point. Her philosophy is Essentially Human. Preeti Helena is also a co-developer of the systemic awareness process in a business context, OCEAN.

Swiss born, and a former mountaineer, Preeti Helena has lived in Australia for over 20 years. She is married, has meditation as a core value in her life and loves the great outdoors, bushwalking, skiing and mountain biking. Multilingual, yet predominantly visual, her mind can occasionally get ahead of her tongue – but what follows any such pause is likely to contain true insight. You will find the experience of working with her enriching – and most likely, life changing.
