Meet the Tribe Boss 

Helen created The Tipsy Filly in 2017 after she converted her horsebox trailer to create a mobile bar. The Tipsy Filly specialises in gin cocktails at weddings, food events and festivals. Helen joined forces with a local bookshop to create The Tipsy Filly Book Club where an author chats about their latest publication and Helen sets up her gin bar to do demos. She also offers The Tipsy Filly Takes Over, which are events in a coffee shop or village hall to run a gin pop up bar alongside cocktail making master classes.

She works in collaboration with lots of different charities and businesses and offers corporate drinks too.

"I love how empowering meeting other women is and how we can all help each other through challenges. Each meetup has been so helpful and interesting." - Gaelle De Vriendt

"I didn’t grow up in the town in which I work so I felt I really needed to find a way of getting into the community and meeting like minded women and the meet ups provided just that for me. I know feel part of the community and have made some really great friends." - Nina Lord

"Networking events that I’ve attended in the past have opened up so many new doors and opportunities through the people I’ve met, so I always remind my guests that and to make new connections on the night. " - Rachel Chan

Don't forget about the highlight of our year when all our clubs, tribes and guests come together from far and wide for one whole day to our Women's Business Conference every December. Find out more at
