About Ellen Carroll (Founder and Director)
I founded Nellie PR & Communication in 2007, naming the business after the best storyteller I know – my mum.
I’ve worked in public relations and communications for more than 22 years. During this time, I have managed some of the biggest and brightest agencies, advised and implemented PR and communication strategies for major global and FTSE 100 players, helped small businesses punch massively above their weight, ensured organisations stay relevant, and helped individuals become the go-to experts in their fields.
I don’t shy away from challenges and continually invest in my skills, most recently becoming a Certified Watertight Marketing Practitioner. My own training is accredited by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) and is eligible for continuing professional development (CPD) points via the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). I’m also a PRCA coach and sounding board.
