  • Helen’s enthusiasm and spiritual energy, her vision and conceptual thinking combined with her skills as coach and the way she handled the intercultural differences finding flexible solutions for the numerous problems that arise when running a membership based international network such as EUMA’s: all this contributed in a major way to the continuing success of the Association. We congratulate Helen on her leadership and all that she has achieved for EUMA.
