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 work with my clients to help them build strong relationships that will create communities. This is done using a range of communication strategies and tactics. 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.

Often with an incorrectly placed apostrophe, just to make things worse... What season? Summer? Nah. Too many of the cards had snow depicted on them. And not all…

I've been a little quite on the old blogging front of late, as I have been working on a new project - a podcast! I'm really proud to announce that it - The Activity Pod - has now been launched. You can find us on iTunes, and soon, hopefully, we will also be on Stitcher Radio…
