It's essential Hellen's professional turnout makes a impact.
As Vice President Issues for BPW NZ, Hellen advocates for legislative change to parlimentary select committees. Hellen wanted an impressive portfolio to hold policy documents and her iPad, while communicating her position with BPW NZ.
The collaboration started when Hellen and Fiona were presenters at a BPW NZ Leadership Forum. Hellen says, "I was impressed with the craftsmanship of her leatherwork. We immediately started a conversation on how she could custom make me a more personalised portfolio. I attend many meeting for BPW NZ and also as a City Councillor and various other groups I am involved with, so I wanted something different well crafted and unique to me".
Fiona recommended a hand finished, rock embossed, British Tan cover on a natural calf inner with bone handstitching. Hellen asked for the BPW International logo to feature. The pair designed a unique black on brass nameplate displaying BPW's logo above Hellen's name in a complementary font.
Hellen says, "My portfolio has certainly been noticed and I am extremely happy with it. I can certainly recommend the workmanship and professionalism that I have had with dealing with Fiona as well as the updates with regards to where we are in the process.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Fiona to any colleagues and friends of mine if they were wanting something a little different."
