What I’ve heard
“As the Head of Strategy at Studio Round, I had the pleasure of working alongside and mentoring Eli for approximately 15 months.

During Eli’s time with us, he was quick to grasp our strategic frameworks, adapt to new ways of working and embrace new challenges. Eli was willing to put in the hard work and grew into a highly capable strategist with a particular focus on creating powerful narratives to stimulate conversations, change behaviours and create impact.

Eli thinks deeply. And he is highly creative. He has the courage to come up with original, thought-provoking ideas that are fit-for-purpose to differentiate brands.

Eli proved to be an avid researcher. Tasked with interrogating data and exploring the cultural trends impacting our client’s categories, he was able to find relevant sources, synthesise extensive research with clarity, and uncover clear and actionable insights.

Eli is an incredibly articulate and competent writer. He can define complex strategic ideas with simplicity. But he is also highly effective at crafting emotive stories to change internal audience behaviours and positively influence customer perception and preferences.

I rate Eli very highly and have no hesitation in recommending him to future employers.”

“Since first joining our team Eli has proven to be an exceptionally talented writer and creative strategist.

As the Director of Sea Salt Marketing I have worked directly with Eli and can say his writing and brand storytelling is truly transcendent. His natural talent and fresh thinking was a key contributor to our agency’s expansion into brand strategy and elevated the quality of work we delivered - which was loved by the team and clients!

Eli’s easygoing and collaborative nature makes him a great leader who is open and eager to take on strategic challenges, always with our clients’ brands at the forefront.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Eli and am excited about the ongoing success and growth he'll no doubt achieve.”
