Melanie is that rare speaker who is unflappable, professional, whip smart, a quick study, and born ready. She not only delivered, but earned the gratitude and wonder of the team that worked for the previous seven months to prepare for this event. Melanie is a total pro and you will see that onstage and in your behind-the-scenes dealings, as well.”

“Melanie shared information in a way that was easily digestible for the audience and that made her one of the favorites throughout the day. She was relatable, and is truly an expert on strategy and content. I would highly recommend adding her to your speaker lineup.” John Z, Conference Organizer.
