Small Business Success Talk with Helen Callier
Helen Callier, with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a Six Sigma Black Belt, began her career in Corporate America working for some of the top Fortune 500 Petrochemical and Industrial companies in the world. While serving as an Executive Staff Technical Manager of a Plastics Division of GE, Helen traveled extensively throughout North America, including Canada, Mexico and Central America and had technical unit responsibilities in South America.
While with GE, she embedded in her DNA to always be marketing and even if you’re an Engineer in front of the customer, be marketing because business – even big business like GE – is about relationships. This business experience combined with growing up in a family business fueled Helen’s energies and shaped not only her marketing skills, but honed Helen’s abilities to nurture customer relationships.
Helen knows first-hand how to steer and sustain a successful small business over the $1 million revenue threshold. From flying high working in GE’s Jack Welch organization to teetering on the brink of failure as a small business owner to now recognized as a small business success story, Helen, with over 10 years in business, 2 offices, and over 30 employees, has touched the lives of thousands of small business owners and helped them on their path of success.
Helen is branded as a “giver” and mentors many small, minority, women and Veteran owned businesses in overcoming challenges and looking at scenarios creatively in order to still march toward their small business goal and make a difference in the marketplace in which they serve. Helen has volunteered for over 7 years for Government Procurement Connections (GPC), a nonprofit organization that helps small, minority, women-owned and Veteran businesses make connections with government agencies.
It's good to talk.
