The Team Helen Batchelor

Senior Consultant

Helen was Chair of Governors for Headington School Oxford from 2008 – 2016, during which time she appointed new Heads of the Senior and Preparatory schools. She played a critical role in setting the culture of the Governing body and building a cohesive and effective team, who with the Head and senior leadership team set a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school.

She brings to RSAcademics a deep understanding of best practice and experience in managing change and communications from senior business positions across a variety of sectors.

Helen worked at Rothschild for 15 years, as Head of Leadership & Organisation Development and latterly, Head of Strategic Marketing for the Wealth Management & Trust business. Her earlier career was as a consultant and executive coach specialising in change management and communications, working in private and public sector organisations including Shell, Exxon, Unilever, S G Warburg and the NHS to deliver significant improvement in business and personal performance.

Helen has a degree from the University of Surrey and is a qualified MBTI and FIRO B practitioner. Married with two grown up children, she enjoys travelling and skiing, and is an enthusiastic chef.

“The expertise demonstrated by RSAcademics throughout this ambitious project proved to be the key to a highly successful outcome.”
