  1. 1. Helen Lambell wears a no- nonsense PR hat to help companies in the property and construction industries She has selflessly spent more than 30 years in journalism, PR and scriptwriting so she can share your news with the people you want to read it.

  2. 2. “Helen is that brilliant mix – fun AND clever.” (PS This is not Helen. In fact, it isn’t even her dog. She spotted it in Delft but it refused to go home with her).

  11. 11. Ten facts about Helen Lambell # Nine She claims to be descended from the alleged lesbian lover of Marie Antoinette. She knows this almost certainly isn’t true – but it makes a good story.

  12. 12. Ten facts about Helen Lambell # Ten Oh yes, a work fact now. She loves getting her teeth into complex property and construction related issues, swilling them round in her mouth and then regurgitating a beautiful piece of prose in which her client is presented as some sort of guru, thus making his or her product or service irresistible to potential customers
