Meet the Team

Elizabeth Laidler

Managing Director

Elizabeth established Encore Communications in 2009

A classical musician by training, she made the move into marketing communications following postgraduate studies at Trinity College of Music, London, where an inspirational ‘Business For Musicians’ course proved more interesting than her daily diet of musicology, theory and historical performance practice!

Since entering the profession in 2002 as press and marketing assistant for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Elizabeth has worked in both in-house and agency environments; creating and managing successful regional, national and international campaigns for clients across a variety of sectors including professional services, education, the arts, lobbying, engineering, leisure and retail.

Elizabeth is responsible for the day-to-day running of the business. She oversees all Encore Communications’ activity and remains ‘hands on’ with several accounts, delivering integrated media relations, social media, digital marketing, crisis communications and marketing strategy work for clients.

Nominated for the CIPR’s Outstanding Young Communicator (UK) award in 2006, Elizabeth is a graduate of Common Purpose’s Meridian course for senior leaders, a CIM-qualified marketer and member of the Public Relations Consultancy Association.
