Riverstone Language & Communications was the brainchild of co-founders Robert Dennis and Helen Fish. Our aim was to create a highly-flexible, boutique training, communications and events consultancy based here in Milan. During an intense period of activity in 2012 we established the organisation and quickly attracted a loyal following of new and potential clients as well as friends and supporters, many of whom attend our highly popular business English and networking aperitivos.
As a serial entrepreneur who has a track record of growing successful b2b service companies in the UK, Helen’s main strength is on the startup phase – generating interest and solving the practical problems faced by a new organisation. Having worked closely with me to get Riverstone off the ground, Helen has now gone on to set up her own business which proudly bears the name Helen Fish English (HFE).
HFE is a small, hard-working careers service company based in Milan and growing throughout Italy. Established in 2013, they have hit the ground running with practical advice for finding success in the English speaking job world. HFE offers skills workshops, tailored one-to-one sessions, professional HR services and in-company courses. The firm aims to offer clients a full package of carefully-designed services.
Helen has established her new business with another Milan-based entrepreneur, Paula Michelle O’Connor of the Irish School of English. With many years experience of running ISEnglish and collaborations with larger schools in Italy, Paula has built a solid skills base both in terms of teaching ability and running a business. Helen and Paula’s new venture will combine the strengths of both these highly-motivated and very capable entrepreneuses
Riverstone wishes Helen and Paula all the best with HFE and we look forward to meeting both of you again soon during the series of exciting business English events we have planned for the coming months.
