Whether a non-profit, a start-up or a company,
your organization is changing the world.

From health to technology, energy to education, you see ahead to the challenges of the future— and you're working to solve them. 

The problem?

You're making a difference... but your communications aren't.

We're going to change that.

Creating brands and messages that drive change


Brand &

Making an impact means changing minds and behaviors, internally and externally. From developing your vision, mission and values, to driving cultural change, to refining your value proposition, I help your organization craft an engaging narrative that builds your brand.


Whether you're selling, fundraising, advocating, or driving change, effective communications reach the right audience with the right message. I work with you to assess your organization's needs and develop a complete communications strategy that helps you reach your goals.

Copywriting & Speechwriting

Compelling, clear and consistent content helps garner interest and trust. As a certified copywriter and experienced speechwriter, I develop messaging that draws your audience in and makes them want to know more . Together, we’ll create copy that inspires action.

Training & Workshops

Making a difference starts with doing things differently. I create and facilitate tailored workshops on storytelling, brand strategy and change communications that provide a dedicated space to develop skills and apply the theory to real-life campaigns.

“The workshop was very helpful for using storytelling as a strategic tool and finding new and impactful ways to engage with our staff. The team appreciated the different case studies, as well as applying the storytelling framework to one of our current projects. We were all extremely happy with the workshop and left with a renewed sense of motivation.”
— Eros Bosisio, Head of Internal Communication, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)

About Elissa


Elissa Bertot is a communications and branding strategist who helps organizations tell stories that inspire action— and who also hates writing about herself in the 3rd person. 

I have more than 12 years of experience in communications, copywriting, PR and marketing in Fortune 50 corporations and agencies.

Since 2016, I've consulted for international organizations, non-profits, companies and startups, developing recognizable brands and compelling communications that help them make an impact. With a team of trusted designers, writers and web developers, I provide a full-service agency experience with a personal, human touch.

I also lead tailored communications workshops, teaching storytelling, brand strategy and change communications to business-owners and communications teams.

When I'm not doing all that, I'm travelling, eating and drinking wine— and running, mountain biking and rock-climbing to work it off!
