Play Hard…

Work Hard…

Over the past 24 years, I have earned a reputation as a creative and straight-talking digital sales & marketing consultant with a track record of delivering results (ROI). My wealth of experience in both the corporate and digital world makes me well-placed to provide big-picture consultancy, Search Engine Optimisation, Web Design and Digital Marketing.

I am a co-owner of Urban Element and spent 15 years as a Managing Director, where I was responsible for the marketing, sales, and key account management. Prior to this, I ran my own direct marketing company – Ellard Marketing Ltd, and previously spent 4 years as Marketing Manager for a Management Consultancy in Gloucestershire.

My wealth of experience has allowed him to build a strong industry knowledge and gain a reputation for identifying and solving businesses’ digital marketing issues and delivering real results.


I am an Ambassador for Oxfordshire based charity SpecialEffect, a role I enjoy and take great pride in. I love coaching the under 9's mixed football team for the Hook Norton Hammerheads. When I am not being a Dad to two boys (8 and 6) I like to play poker, watch live rugby and have a pint or two.
