What some of the region’s business leaders say about us…


Peter Aarosin – Director, Danbrit Holdings

I have worked with Helen Gowland right from the start of BusinessWorks magazine. Helen has made a difference in the Humber business community and her magazine is now read and seen in many businesses around the Humber.

I have very much enjoyed working with Helen and her staff, and we look forward to continuing this in future years.

Marketing Humber (The Bondholders)

BW magazine, a publication largely supporting the SME business voice in the Humber, has grown in footprint and impact significantly over the past year, always publishing to the highest standard.

The team has worked closely with Marketing Humber to deliver a number of projects, most recently The Waterline campaign, which brings together academia and industry to tackle the challenges of climate change and promote the opportunities arising from our regional transition to a net zero carbon economy.

The BW team are attentive and responsive, always delivering on brand, engaging a great number of our stakeholders and sharing the investment news of our expansive portfolio of projects we have here in the Humber.

Many thanks, Helen, for all the time and effort you and your team continue to put in, we very much appreciate you working alongside us to help us engage with the Humber and beyond.

Jo Fleming – Entrepreneur and founder of Yorkshire Staffing Services, GT IT Recruitment and the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards

Helen is a diligent, authentic businesswoman who works tirelessly ensuring that companies receive great coverage in BW.

BW is quickly becoming one of Hull’s most popular business publications, and is displayed at some of the area’s most successful establishments.

Having not only been featured in BW but also advertising within it too, Helen has been an absolute delight to work with and is someone I now consider a friend.

Jan Brumby, chief executive, For Entrepreneurs Only

I’ve been really impressed by Helen, Sam and the team at BusinessWorks.

It’s a quality business-led magazine that celebrates entrepreneurship and the people who are making a difference in the local area, and I hope that it can continue to inform and inspire businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire in 2020.


Jamie Dempster, director, Composites Construction UK (CCUK)

It is a pleasure working with BusinessWorks and we are impressed by how great Helen and her team are in terms of communication and ensuring that we get the highest possible coverage in the region! We hugely appreciate their creative approach, flexibility, attention to detail and responsiveness. Following brilliant features in the magazine and online we have already felt the effects of the ongoing campaign; our primary goal is to raise the profile of CCUK as a local, specialist repair company serving the Humber estuary industry and M62 energy corridor, and in just a few short weeks we have had some fantastic new inquiries.
