Award winning communication partners ‘Elevate’ the EAA message

Elevate Team

We know trying to ask the general public to talk about uncomfortable topics like eczema can be a challenge – we’ve been at it for more than 20 years!

So if you’ve spotted the EAA or eczema in the news recently or noticed greater discussion online about eczema, that’s thanks to our fabulous communication partner Elevate Communication.

The EAA is proud to partner with this local award-winning agency, with Elevate taking out the Small Consultancy of the Year award at the 2017 Public Relations Institute of Australia Golden Target National Awards earlier this month.

We think it’s a well-deserved accolade.

We’ve been working with the Elevate team since the beginning of the year, and also welcomed Elevate Founder and Managing Director Mel Deacon to our advisory board at the AGM in September. Mel and the Elevate team were instrumental in making this year’s Eczema Awareness Month our most successful ever, positioning the EAA as the leading authority on eczema information and support for sufferers, carers and healthcare professionals.

We reached a national audience of more than 284,000 across Fairfax and ABC radio including a spot on Talking Lifestyle (formerly 2UE), Sydney’s largest radio broadcast station! The EAA and Elevate are also working together to generate greater acceptance of our corporate sponsorship so we can continue to support people with eczema and their families. We’ve produced a professional prospectus to better align our vision with our corporate members, and have built an exclusive and carefully selected group of partners.

Elevate played an integral part in the EAA’s success in 2017. As a small not-for-profit championing a challenging cause, we understand the time it takes to achieve results and the importance of quality over quantity.

We are thrilled to be working with such a great team and are excited to see what EAA’s future looks like with Elevate in our corner.

Keep an eye out for some amazing things to come from EAA. If you are looking for a communications agency, email the team at or call on 07 3180 3666.
