The turnaround for the December event was exceptional. We confirmed attendance for 30 sites for a promotional day with less than 3 weeks to organize. Hels Belles office service got confirmed staff in place within a couple of days, and kept me informed with their level of experience on our brands, and sent through their profile pictures. The invoice was sent through in a timely manner.
When this event was replicated in March, Helena booked as many girls as possible that had worked the event the first time round, so they had more knowledge of the depots upon arriving, this event was manned brilliantly, with the girls enthusiastic to sell.
I am extremely impressed with the knowledge of our products, and the demeanour of every member of Hels Belles staff that I have interacted with. The girls are extremely astute, and understand the objectives of the day. Where there have been questions, the girls have either contacted me via Helena, or called me directly to clarify areas of confusion.
The girls arrive promptly, in the correct attire, and with the right attitude! They are willing to work and always do so with a smile on their faces. I would not look at using another agency as an alternative.
Helena works hard to ensure the brief covers all aspects that her team need to know. The days are executed professionally, and to the same standards as internal staff working on the event. The costs are reasonable, and worth every penny for peace of mind that the brand reputation is in safe hands.

We have just completed a large and prestigious project with Hels Belles which involved engaging with over 200,000 sports fans at Premiership rugby and football grounds. Hels Belles delivered over and above expectation and quite simply blew our previous suppliers away!
We have found that we can rely on Hels Belles to provide models that are appropriate, punctual, well turned out and fully briefed on the day. Hels Belles have demonstrated consistently that they can work to tight deadlines and flexible briefs. The models are stunning and create a real buzz wherever they go; to directly quote an impressed consumer at Twickenham "HELSBELLES". After the event feedback is always reported immediately so that key learning’s can be recorded to enable us to improve the delivery of future activity.
Ogilvy's experience of working with Hels Belles has been rewarding and a proven success for our clients because they have a carefully considered process for bookings which guarantees delivering friendly, reliable and professional staff.

Events International have worked with Hels Belles for over 6 years and our continued working relationship grows from strength to strength.
From the initial request through to quality of staff on events is professional and efficient. I can’t fault the paperwork and contact received with the main office, from enquiry through to confirmation the attention to detail and standard of what’s received is first class.
Staff allocated and booked to us are becoming more regular over the years and HB are so in tune with our needs that only the best are ever booked and recommended. The HB staff do stand out over others that we come across and this is credit to the agency overall.
I would fully recommend Hels Bells to anyone. An efficient, friendly and professional agency that really does know what the client requires
I have worked with the HB team since mid-2009, both for Jygsaw Brands and Shepton Mallet Cider Brands.
Hels Belles have the ability to quickly engage in a piece of activity and whilst we have always strived to ensure a maximum amount of notice is given there have been times when we have needed to react to something quickly and this has always been embraced by the team. We recently needed a last minute execution for our new Premium Cider Brand; the team at Hels Belles executed a VIP customer invitation initiative within a week, which was exactly as required.
Well-disciplined and well briefed teams of staff at all times. Extremely clear on their objectives from HB, who consistently execute our brand objectives and strategies in support of the specific initiative being worked upon. Always extremely smart in appearance, often using branded items again to support the brand. Hels Belles always insist upon using quality and bespoke branded clothing to fully support the brand and present it as we as brand owners would want it to be seen by either the customer or consumer.
Consistency is what you get from the team at Hels Belles and this is apparent across all levels of activity from one off events to larger scale brand consumer trialing initiatives. It is this consistency that sets the team at Hels Belles out from other agencies I have used.
Not frightened to challenge where appropriate, especially if a better way of doing something is apparent to them when developing a brand initiative. This challenge has always been helpful over the years as the specialism is theirs and not ours.
Extremely decent and professional people to deal with at all times, a team who embrace the brands they work upon and strive to champion these brands as efficiently as we would ourselves. A true pleasure to deal with.

Working together since 2010 – various customer tradeshows around the UK
HB provided sample staff for tradeshow events, managed/briefed sample team before event effectively.
Sample teams always delivered and exceeded expectations.
The experience of the girls was brilliant, the majority have already worked in the licensed industry made it easier for them to understand what our objectives were.
Communication prior to event is fantastic; I was also impressed with the service we received after the event…. Pictures/info from the tradeshows was very helpful when we were collating info to put together an evaluation.

Professional Sports Group and Hels Belles have been working together regularly since October 2009.
Helena and her team have a very high level of client servicing, always quick to respond to event briefs
Hels Belles never fail to deliver top quality staff for all of our client events. Whether that is at Twickenham, Wentworth or the Etihad Stadium, rain or shine, the girls always have a smile on their face.
They turn up ahead of time at all events, and always have a thorough understanding of the event briefs. They understand the client’s needs, and go above and beyond to deliver to a premium standard.
Having worked with a number of agencies and suppliers in the sports marketing industry, you would have to go a long way to find an agency more efficient than Helena and her team.
They have a strong network of promotional staff across the country, so are always able to pull together a strong team for us, no matter where our event is.

Hels Belles provide an efficient and friendly service and strive to find the right person to fulfill the brief. I trust Hels Belles to recruit a high calibre of girls on our behalf and trust her judgement on who she recommends
We have worked together on various campaigns over the last few years and I know if there are any issues they will be resolved with the utmost speed and efficiency. I always enjoy receiving the photo report of the girls in action as this provides peace of mind!
Compared with other agencies Hels Belles offer a professional and personalised service and work hard to provide the right girl for the right role! They are passionate about their girls and this shines through.
I have had the pleasure of working with Helena and her highly competent and efficient team for over a decade.
The care and attention to service extends not only to her clients but also to her team as a matter of course. In short, Helena treats and cares for her staff's needs as much as clients which is why she always gets to book the best staff who turn up on time, well informed and ready to work.
No matter how large or small the booking the service is always impeccable, often despite short lead-time.
From a simple brief supplying event hostesses for a meet and greet, providing spotters for charity auctions, Helena’s skill set and personal management skills make the delivery of large scale events requiring hundreds of staff, training and dressing them effortless.
Since the first time I used Helena I have never used another agency.
