In an emotional farewell, we had to say goodbye to one of our most dedicated employees last week as Helena (below right) will be leaving the UK shortly to spend more time with her family back in Slovakia. Her dedication and length of service sets an example to us all – such loyalty is rare. Chairwoman Shohreh Fleming (below left) said “Helena’s friendly and pleasant personality will be greatly missed by all of us.”
She started with us here at Prestige Network in early 2007 and has seen changes in staff, customers, interpreters and even a major office move this spring. A hit with customers and interpreters alike, Helena could be relied upon to solve problems of all shapes and sizes – her ability to persuade interpreters and liaise with clients has fulfilled many a booking. She trained new staff in the Interpreting team, where her deep operational understanding meant she was perfect for the job, and also advised our IT team on process optimisation of our internal CRM systems.
