About Helen Twose

Freelance Business Journalist

Helen Twose is a journalist and communications specialist, currently working as a Communications Manager for AUT’s Business and Law schools. Her contact details at AUT are here: www.news.aut.ac.nz/for-journalists

Prior to joining AUT, Helen worked as a freelance journalist for six years and has been writing about business for more than a decade. Her KiwiSaver Q&A column and profiles of business stars featured in the NZ Herald business section from 2012 until 2017.

Helen has also regularly written about up-and-coming businesses, award-winning entrepreneurs and industry issues affecting companies across New Zealand. As a staff reporter she covered the telecommunications sector for the Herald during the tumultuous break-up of Telecom and the arrival of a new mobile player 2degrees.

Helen loved taking the complex industry machinations, geeky technology talk, and making them relevant to everyday Herald readers.

For her efforts she was awarded the Telecommunications Users Association of New Zealand journalist of the year in 2011, with judges saying "Helen demonstrates knowledge of the industry, the personalities of major players, plus the ability to convey this to the readers."

She runs to relax, consistently placing in the bottom quarter of every event she’s entered. Helen crossed the full marathon off her bucket list in 2015 when she ran the New York City Marathon, finishing behind three quarters of the field. Her lifelong running goal is to crack two hours for a half marathon.
