“I loved Melanie’s session at Social Media Marketing World 2019! She shared smart, useful, actionable tips for content creators. I can’t wait to use her structure for more productive brainstorming and content creating sessions. She’s also just a really awesome speaker — knowledgeable and genuine, with the perfect dash of humor. Would definitely recommend her as a speaker or catching her at any event if she’s presenting!”

“90 minutes before our event was to begin, our emcee bailed. I was at a loss, and needed a replacement. Within 30 minutes, Melanie was there and preparing to fill in. She was able to adapt the script, build rapport with our judges and teams for the pitch competition, and gather some great tidbits to share on stage. Melanie was an incredible emcee, period. The fact that she stepped into the role with no warning or preparation — and was still amazing — leaves me at a loss for words. I would not hesitate to recommend her skill and professionalism as a speaker.  If you have the opportunity to work with Melanie, you should take it!”

“Melanie possesses such an inspirational blend of passion, knowledge, and pure creative energy. I have never before left a workshop with so many new ideas - and not just her ideas, but my own new ideas that she inspired by exposing so much of her creative process and structural foundation. You can tell how much she loves what she does, and it's contagious.”

“It felt like her presentation spoke directly to me. She delivered a thought provoking message about how we could attack content marketing writing in similar ways to the award winning pieces she had written in the past. I thought her panel was not just the most engaging, but left me with the most actionable items to take back to improve my writing. I really can’t recommend Melanie enough. Her presentation was clear and commanding, and she has so much great knowledge and experience to share with us all. If she is presenting at an event, you need to make sure you see her!”

“Melanie offered excellent insights into the intersection of human storytelling and branded content... Not only was the information valuable, but Melanie delivered it in a concise and compelling way, always a welcome ability in a conference speaker. I'm very glad that I chose to attend Melanie's session and will be watching for her name at future events.“

“Unlike many of the other presenters who simple said “You should X, Y, Z”, she went one step further to tie all of her recommendations together with examples of her work that illustrated what it looks like to follow these recommendations. Seeing is believing, but it was also very inspiring and helped give me ideas on how to make native advertising work for my clients.

Melanie is a true star! She not only spellbound the audience of three workshops on native advertising – she was also the main speaker at our B2B event. She is a fundamentally smart, articulate, experienced and wonderfully funny speaker… In the evaluations she was rated extremely high, and everyone seemed to have truly enjoyed her keynote.”
