PUBLICITY EVENT MANAGEMENT MEDIA RELATIONS
Drysdale Communications was a boutique communications agency that operated for 16 years until 2017.
Drysdale Communications embraced the notion of providing clients with individual service
across a number of fields: brand strategy & positioning, public & media relations and event management.
In 2017 after life took a different turn, Elisabeth Drysdale decided to close her business and use her experience to create meaning and give back in the NFP Space. Elisabeth worked as a Marketing & Event Manager in the homeless sector for the Exodus Foundation and then for Neuroblastoma Australia in Business Development and Events. Elisabeth currently works in the education sector.
Elisabeth started Drysdale Communications in 2001 when she won the prestigious role as Director of the Champagne Bureau, representing the Comité Champagne (CIVC) in Champagne.
Prior to this Elisabeth worked as a Public Relations and Marketing Executive for De Beers Diamonds within advertising agency J.Walter Thompson.
Elisabeth has over 18 years experience across food, drink, luxury, lifestyle & NFP categories.
In 2011, Elisabeth was presented with the St Vincent’s Award presented by the Comité Champagne for her service to the Champagne region and in 2014 she was inducted as Dame Chevalier of the l’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne.
Elisabeth holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Marketing from UTS, a Degree in Communications from UWS, a certificate from Columbia University (Emeritus) in Digital Marketing: Customer Engagement, Social Media, Planning & Analytics and a Marketing Certificate from the Centre of Marketing Excellence (CeMe), Lausanne, Switzerland.

“Growing a brand, a vision and media career through public relations and communications with John and Elisabeth was all of awesome! We thought the same; worked well together and achieved an incredible amount in a short period which has cemented my creative credibility in the food and media industry. Elisabeth and John are highly regarded within the media industry. I have loved and love every minute of working with Drysdale Communications on my Rowie’s Cakes mission!”
