Welcome to my website I hope you find something you are interested in. My name is Ellie Kerr (Ellie is the name everyone calls me but my proper name is Ellen – I answer to both and anything else in between) Ever the optimist … with a realist streak - I have a glass half full disposition, love to have fun and make a difference to whatever situation I find myself in. I like interacting with people and I am a “people magnet”. I love to speak with them, hear how they are, what they are doing.Read More
I have a wide ranging expertise in this area. I am responsible for delivery of some of the highest profile business events in the region such Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) Your Big Year (Merit), Inbound Marketing UK Conference, Merseyside Women of the Year, various women’s workshops and conferences.
This is an area where communication is everything. I have a laser eye for detail as this is where the Devil lies. I keep it simple and work with Teams to enable a clear flow of information.
I listen and watch how the process flows and then recommend solutions that make a difference to the people and the bottom line. It can be from how the company communicates both internally and externally to looking at diversification into new markets.
Motivating Teams and helping them realise how they are can massively influence the business. Helping Teams to find their inter-prenuerial potential is the key and how they fit into the bigger business picture. Good leadership skills at all levels and a collaborative approach drives up production to ultimately sustain profit.
I have been the MC at various events which I have ensured smooth running and keeping on time. By bringing a sense of humour to the proceedings it makes everyone feel welcome from the start. I am often asked to be a Speaker at events on various business topics and have also run workshops covering the various roles I have undertaken in my career.
There has always been a joke whenever I get involved with a company about my red pen and how much it will be missed! My eye for detail enables me to check communications both external and internal and “Ellie-tise” it if needed. I have written various reports, newsletters and information productions where the message needs to be clear, concise and understood.
I bring an exceptional level of skills, reality and contacts to Boards.

“Come to the edge! We might fall. Come to the edge! It's too high! COME TO THE EDGE! And they came He pushed… And they flew.” by Christopher Logue I love this poem as is it resonates with me so much. It makes me think of the times throughout my life when I have been scared to do something different to step out of my safe, comfy cosy place.
