Director of New Business
Elly looks after business development across the group for EMEA. Prior to this role she was MD of our ghg Australia office for five years from 2009. During this time Elly and her team diversified the client base and created an extremely well-regarded health-specialist offering that supported both Rx and consumer health brands. ghg Australia has maintained a 75% pitch win rate year on year.
Elly is passionate about science information – over the past 20 (and some!) years she has experienced almost all channels of the health communication industry and is happy to lead as well as contribute to team efforts to bring her experience to benefit the ghg team and clients’ needs.
Elly regularly contributes opinion pieces to industry journalists and provides senior counsel to clients during planning and/or crisis management. She thrives on deadlines and has developed a number of trusted processes over the years. She also enjoys training junior colleagues to help them optimise their performance.
With a degree in Microbiology, Elly classes herself as a science nerd – very happy to sit and read (and get excited) over a clinical paper or two. Her nomad tendencies have led her to live and work throughout Europe, Africa and in the US.
Elly enjoys line drawing, ‘experiencing’ Australian wines and bushwalking –although the latter is now less accessible near the Thames!
