The Communications team keeps members informed on all NHPC, government, and industry initiatives, and supports all other departments in any written and publicly presented communications. It manages the NHPC brand, graphic design, participation in tradeshows and health-related events, media relations, publications, the NHPC website, and electronic communications, including social media.
Elaine brings over 30 years of experience in executive level communications, mergers/acquisitions, marketing, advertising, brand, and electronic communications.
She considers herself fortunate to have been involved in major initiatives through positions in corporate, government, various utilities, benefits, and health and wellness. She has owned and operated her own communications consulting business, providing strategic planning and executive coaching services.
Elaine is an accredited member of the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS). Over the years, she participated as a CPRS board member, accreditation judge and awards judge for both CPRS and IABC. She was awarded two CPRS National Awards of Excellence and a number of other CPRS and IABC awards.
She is a certified trainer of trainers in change management and has had the opportunity to train in many specific communications disciplines in Canada and the US.
Elaine has worked in the UK and travelled extensively, and she still wouldn't choose to live anywhere else in the world. She is a life-long learner, having taken training in culinary arts, interior decoration, and landscape design — just for fun. She can almost always be found with her nose in a book.
