Elouise Smith
Elouise is an Associate Director of MES and heads up the Research and Community team, after originally joining the company in 2009. A long-time member of MES, Elouise has been fundamental to the growth and evolution of the company. She leads on the learning and development of staff, ensuring that MES is a truly great place to work.

As a Market Research Society member Elouise can frequently be found on the road, running qualitative research projects and leading support at consultation events. Her understanding of how to break down often complex health messages as part of an inclusive public consultation is invaluable to her clients. Renowned for her practical insight and know-how, she’s always refining her approach to patient engagement and community outreach. In the past 9 years, she has designed and delivered campaigns that have seen MES recruit 250,000 members on behalf of our NHS provider and commissioner clients. She has been involved in multiple community outreach projects covering topics such as service reconfiguration, extended GP access & social prescribing.

Outside the health sector Elouise has applied her skills and experience in community outreach to the housing sector managing research projects around regeneration on behalf of Circle Housing Merton Priory in 2015 and, more recently, designing and delivering a roadshow of 33 events on behalf of Thames Water.

At home Elouise enjoys time with her young family restoring their home and garden. She finds peace in her regular yoga practice.
