About – The Managers Helpful Hub

Hi, I am Irene Conlin, the founder of The Managers Helpful Hub. 

We go about providing a cost effect, practical and somewhat unique service that helps small business owner managers with the "people manager" part of their role.   

Why Create The Managers Helpful Hub?

Small business owner managers who employ people are brave souls!  It's not easy and I wanted them to easily access useful resources, as well as private coaching to help them be the best employer they can be for themselves, their staff and their business.  All for a reasonable fee and with a timeframe that fits in with a busy life.  

Here are some results achieved by people I have worked with:

  • Improved confidence and skills to recruit, manage and develop people in their team. 
  • Have team identify and deliver business improvement projects generating c£250K of savings.
  • X7 times return on investment of fees achieved within weeks.
  • Built a team that became local and national business award winners.
  • Increased employee satisfaction rates within businesses - up 24%.
  • Developed boring jobs into ones team members are happy to get out of bed for. 
  • Have regular family time rather than putting in extra hours at work.

Sponsored Memberships Available

For every 10 memberships sold, 1 is donated to a manager working within a not for personal profit/ third sector organisation for whom, paying the commercial rate is not an option.  


Email: support@themanagershelpfulhub.co.uk with a little about yourself and the work you do to register for the next available sponsored membership.


We look forward to helping you and your organisation out.
