Helen Smith


I am a Chartered Geologist and have recently retired. My career has mostly been in the field of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. I co-founded LEAP Environmental Ltd, a specialist engineering consultancy. Throughout my professional career I have fought to secure equal opportunities for women in science and engineering and have taken a particular interest in professional development of graduate scientists. I have held various committee positions at trade association and specialist technical level.

I am foremost a scientist but have 25yrs+ of running two SMEs at Board level and with that comes direct experience in many fields of business.
My son was also a student at Collyer’s.
