Ellee was press officer for Eastern Region Euro MP Robert Sturdy for almost nine years, raising his profile regionally and nationally, explaining his work in a non-jargon way so it was easily understood by everyone. She promoted an important regional sugar campaign, gaining the support of ACP countries, and persuaded local news TV to film him standing on a pile of sugar beet in Cambridgeshire at 8am!
She also joined Robert, and Agriculture Minister James Paice (he was then Shadow Agriculture Minister) on their visit to 10 Downing Street to hand in a protest letter about pesticide legislation where she recorded a video.
ProActive PR was the project manager behind Robert’s new website which has been highly praised by Conservative colleagues in Brussels, and manages the web content.
Her blog is included in the top 50 political blogs recommended by political pundit Iain Dale in Total Politics.
Ellee was Conservative Eastern Region Press Officer during the 2005 General Election and 2009 Euro Election when she managed the election campaign website, promoted candidates with the regional media, taking campaign photos and recording election campaign videos.
She provides media training and guidance for politicians and candidates, including crisis management on a 24/7 basis whenever she is needed in an emergency. She also worked closely with Conservative candidates for the 2010 General Election. She can also assist with speech writing and presentation.
Ellee Seymour is a remarkable woman. Not just vivacious, wise and creative, she is an expert media adviser.
Ellee has given me media advice over many years and has recently produced two excellent videos. She has the patience and kindness to deal with the most awkward of politicians. Her dedication is tremendous.
