Bio

Monique Elwell is a pattern-finder, truth-speaker and promise-keeper. She helps businesses and brands navigate the ever shifting landscape of the consumer web.

She started her career during the ‘90s dotcom boom on Wall Street. Working for investment banks such as Smith Barney, Union Bank of Switzerland, Merrill Lynch and Wit Capital, she researched, wrote and published equity research reports on the nascent internet industry, providing her with unprecedented access to the movers and shakers, from the Silicon Corridor to Silicon Alley to Silicon Valley. As a result, Monique quickly sifts through “cool fluff” and targets tools, campaigns and business models that make sense from a business standpoint. Later, she moved 180 degrees from the quantitative to the qualitative perspective, leading the travel and leisure practice at Iconoculture, a consumer insight and trends company. Recently, she founded and ran Conversify, a social media agency located in the U.S. and U.K.

She covers the gamut from business and marketing strategy to consumer insights with special attention to how consumers engage in technology and create communities. Over the years, her clients and coverage have ranged from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Excite, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Yahoo!, Harrah’s Resorts and Casinos, to Lycos, and Vail Resorts International. She speaks on social media at conferences and teaches her social media methodology in agencies, corporations and universities.
