Elly Stone


Founder, Pillars & Stone

Executive leadership experience in human resources, coaching, business development and sales, Elly Stone is highly regarded as an influential and supportive mentor. For nearly 20 years she has worked with leading companies in IT&T, banking, education and professional services across global markets in Australia, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and the Americas.

As a mother of two young children, Elly understands the relevance of recognising what is important and how to prioritise while remaining flexible. Like many new mothers, she struggled to make time for herself as she focused her energy on others. Determined to be the best person she could be, she reclaimed her identity and is now passionate about helping others do the same. With depression levels reportedly growing among fathers and mothers, Elly believes attaining harmony is the key to family wellbeing and personal happiness.

Known for her personable nature and positive, action-oriented coaching style, Elly is highly-regarded for her exceptional coaching abilities. She prides herself on challenging her clients in a way that empowers them to create positive life changes.

Elly is passionate about supporting women in business and helping families transition into parenthood. Elly also loves spending time with her children, Tilly and Ayden, and her husband Anthony.
