About Nellie PR & Communications

Helping hidden gems just like you

If your business is often described as a ‘hidden gem’ or a ‘best-kept secret’, you’re in the right place. We love working with businesses and organisations that are brilliant at what they do, but not so good at telling the world about it.

We work with organisations in many sectors and industries, including family businesses, UK manufacturers, data and good tech firms, and financial organisations. We also provide online courses, trusted advice, consultancy, training, and mentoring to business owners, MDs, and CEOs, as well as PR and marketing practitioners.

Our approach: PR that PAYS

We have developed a proven PR that PAYS™ approach to address the specific needs of your business, to create opportunities, build recognition and deliver tangible, profitable results.

Ellen - Nellie PR Founder

I founded Nellie PR in 2007, naming the business after the best storyteller I know – my mum.

I’m no ordinary consultant – I’m a strategic PR, communication and marketing consultant, mentor and trainer.
