Mel Kettle is a communication and social media expert, speaker, author, trainer and mentor.
With over 20 years’ professional experience, Mel has found that one of the biggest challenges businesses face is how to communicate effectively so they attract, retain and engage their customers and clients.
In 2006 Mel established her communications consultancy and has since worked around the world with associations, researchers and academics, CEOs and Executive Management Teams, small business and not-for-profits.
She is particularly obsessed with teaching associations, CEOs, thought leaders and businesses how to communicate authentically, as authentic communication helps build strong relationships. And as people do business with people they know, like and trust, authenticity is essential.
Mel has a Master of Business (Marketing), a Master of Public Health, and she is a past Board member of the International Association of Business Communicators (Qld) and The Queensland Choir.

She not only did her homework to make sure she understood our context, what we wanted and what would work for us, she also brought to the table very simple suggestions that actually work.Fiona Forrest

We really appreciated the Social Media Workshop that Mel delivered, particularly with its focus on using twitter for researchers and academics. The session gave us a great background on the role social media, is playing within universities, and by researchers and students to promote research and connect with others working in similar fields.Clare Murray
