Ellie manages the coaches and consultants networks and keeps Blueprint plugged in to worthwhile relationships to help progress the initiative.

Ellie first contributed to the Blueprint initiative as a volunteer, while she worked at global FMCG Unilever. She was on a small task force which contributed strategic direction to the initiative, advising on communications and constantly challenging its relevance to the business world.

Ellie worked in global communications at Unilever, first in the press office, then as business manager to the global communications function. While in these roles she picked up experience of managing social media, website development, C-suite communications, and leading global projects.

After a break from the working world travelling round Burma and Laos, Ellie joined the Blueprint team in early 2014. Outside of work, Ellie is usually to be found on the rugby pitch playing for Hampstead Ladies.
