Welcome to Mel Kettle Consulting
In 2006 I quit my job to become a marketing communication consultant, and I haven’t looked back. My first client is still a client, as they, like all my clients, seek to create a positive difference to people’s lives.
The most important factor that comes into play when I take on a new client is that we share common values – gratitude, integrity, honesty, a sense of social justice and a willingness to work hard for a successful outcome.

I am particularly determined to encourage my clients to embrace social media as it is a great tool to increase awareness of your brand, your product, your expertise, and, when done well, it enhances the service you provide to your stakeholders.

“If you don’t make some major lifestyle changes, you will probably have a stroke before you turn 30.” Not the words you want to hear from your GP when you’re 29 years old. It was the wake up call I needed. Extreme stress had been quietly eroding my quality of life for some time, however…
