about us banpas

BANPAS has been operating since 2014 and is run by two ex-portrait photographers, Helen McGlynn and Emma Canham.

Helen McGlynn

I’ve been self employed for 20 years, have ran failing businesses and wildly successful ones. I’ve helped really tiny businesses grow and achieve their goals and I’ve helped national businesses become multinational. There’s not much I haven’t seen or solved when it comes to marketing. And the best bit is, I give freely to our members, I will do as much as I possibly can to give you the tools to solve your issues. I won’t just show you how, I also explain why.

Emma Canham

I’ve been running small business since 2004, always within creative industries. I have seen first hand the issues that small business owners face. A chance meeting with Helen in 2014 set me onto a path of self development which changed my mindset on business completely – I had the same lightbulb moment so many of our members often have after listening to our training. This gives me a unique perspective on business issues as I totally understand how difficult running a business can seem, yet now I create solutions to those problems for other business owners.


Helen writes and presents all of our content as well as answering business questions in our Facebook group


Emma manages all of business administration for BANPAS. She keeps everything working smoothly for members and designs all of our systems.
