"When you look out on an audience and see everyone’s attention is focused on the speaker and not on their smartphones, you know you are witnessing something special."

- Robert Demarzo, Senior VP Event Content & Strategy, The Channel Company

High energy, high engagement - that’s what you get with each one of my talks and workshops. Whether it’s a 45-minute keynote or a full-day workshop, your audience will be fully engaged from start to finish. When people leave my workshops, they take their next step, find their own voice, and rock their brand - personally and professionally.

Choose one of the following & my lovely booking manager, Michelle, will make sure we have all the details to customize the length to fit your audience and budget.

ROCK YOUR BRAND: Business is Human to Human
The internet is a truly wonderful place with everything we need at our fingertips. And it’s ruining our ability to truly connect with each other because it has made businesses lazy. Yes, we’re all looking for a way to make money in our sleep. And I say all because even those who aren’t looking for it are still hoping to find a way to not work so dang hard. Sure, you thought if you had more email addresses you’d have more chances to get new clients. "It’s a numbers game.”

Can we start over?

Hi. I’m Melanie. I’m a human. I’m not your “target audience.” I’m not a consumer or a user or another email address. I’m not a number. I’m your biggest brand ambassador. I’m your marketing department. I’m your sales team. I’m part of a collective of humans who will build your business for you.

Instead of building your business on B2B or B2C, it's time to build our businesses on H2H. Human-to-human. Let's build your brand and find your best clients and employees.

In your talk or workshop, we’ll work on:

  • Understanding your brand’s impact internally & externally
  • Bringing in only your perfect clients
  • Attracting and keeping your best employees
  • Making sure your ambassadors have a way to talk about you

Find out what you're getting yourself into: Want more business? Stop selling. Build a club.

ROCK YOUR LIFE: From Miserable to Beautiful
Look around - is everything beige? When did your Crayola box of colors disappear and your idea of adulting become so boring? What happened to that amped-up kid - the one who was happy to jump on her bike and ride as fast as she could to the lake near her house and play all day with her friends? Badasses don't wear beige.

When you walk into a room, do you make it brighter or darker? Many of us live beautiful lives, yet are miserable. But the opposite is also quite true. Those who live in the most miserable conditions tend to be the most beautiful human beings. It's time to take a deep look at ourselves and see the purpose we were given to live out in this lifetime.

Everyone has a purpose, but few actually use them. When we are living on purpose, we spread light. When we share our light with others, we are able to change the world. Let's find your thing, create a plan, and start making the impact you were put here to make. But let me warn you, you may need to clear out some stuff in your life to make that happen - job, friends, family, to-do lists, priorities. Are you truly ready to live a beautiful life of color?

Together, we’ll work on:
  • Telling your story
  • Understanding your own personal brand
  • Finding your purpose
  • Putting together a plan for taking the next step

ROCK YOUR PITCH: Storytelling with Numbers
You have to pitch for money for your business or project.
You have to tell your boss you deserve a raise.
You have to explain why your project is going to be successful.

You have numbers to support your reasons for getting what you want and you understand that numbers matter. But it's up to you to convince them - using data AND story - that you truly deserve this thing you want. In order to get to X (numbers), you've got to explain Y (why).

This talk speaks to the humans who believe numbers tell the story AND to the humans who believe stories tell the numbers. Looking at both sides to ensure everyone gets the information they need, you'll be able to craft a presentation from the story the numbers tell in a succinct, simple, and manageable way. You'll walk away with things you can change immediately in your current presentation or just what you needed to create the one that's in your head. You've got to make your pitch by making an impact.

In this 1-hour keynote or 3-hour workshop, you'll start:

  • Finding out how the numbers can tell a story
  • Getting tips on how to tell the story without boring people
  • Seeing why it matters that you make your audience feel something
  • Seeing how the story AND the numbers make the impact

It's up to YOU to rock your pitch!
