About Mel

How do we become more connected in an increasingly disconnected world?

As we spend more time with technology, we often forget it’s the human relationship that is most important. People do business with people they know, like and trust, and the best way to increase trust is to increase connection.

I started working for myself in 2006, after more than 15 years working for other people in the private, government and non-profit sectors.

What I do:

I’m an expert at communication that builds trust. I understand how to create strategies that have immediate, meaningful impact. Like baking a cake, it’s essential to have the right ingredients to communicate with clarity, compassion and consistency.

With more than two decades of experience in strategic communication and leadership and a unique educational combination of a Master of Business (Marketing) and a Master of Public Health, my clients tell me that I’m valuable asset to leaders and teams that want achieve real connection and sustained engagement.

Clients also rave about my sharp insight, ability to simplify the complex and my capacity to mobilise people and ideas so they can increase their visibility and influence.

How I do it:

⭐ Facilitated strategy workshops, training, coaching and mentoring that result in improved relationships, reputations and revenue
⭐ Personal branding and mindset for career and business growth
⭐ Social media skills for leaders and executives
⭐ Increasing influence and building trust for Boards, leaders, teams and organisations
⭐ Speaking at conferences, planning days and other in-house and public events

Who I serve:

Today I work with clients who share my values – connection, learning, integrity, curiosity, kindness, fun and health – this includes CEOs, Boards, senior executives and teams in the finance / superannuation / insurance industries, universities, associations and government

I am a big believer in personal and professional learning and growth, whether it is via formal education or through keeping up to date with the latest industry trends and changes.

In terms of formal education, I have a unique mix of business and health qualifications with a Bachelor of Arts (Tourism Management), a Master of Business (Marketing) and a Master of Public Health.

The social stuff

My other loves in life are cooking (and eating), travel, photography, reading, listening to music, and (of course) my gorgeous partner Shaun.

And yes, I took all the photos on this site. Except for the non-selfie ones of me. Obviously.
