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.

Including more productivity tips and tricks than I ever expected! I spoke with and met some incredible people, and I'm really grateful that they gave…
