“If you don’t communicate confidently, why should anyone have confidence in you?”


G’day, I’m Mel. I’m on a mission to help ambitious entrepreneurs and business professionals to take centre stage, embrace the spotlight and present with more confidence, credibility and conviction.

During my 25 years working in business in various capacities, I’ve noticed so many business people doing themselves a disservice through ineffective pitches and presentations (or avoiding public speaking completely!) So I’ve developed a unique set of programmes for organisations and individuals to share with them confidence and communication tips I have learned over a lifetime of being on stage.

Through my interactive keynotes, masterclasses and one to one sessions, you will learn tools and techniques to:

  • create a powerful pitch or presentation
  • build confidence and self-belief
  • connect with and engage an audience
  • use your body, voice and mind to enhance your communication
  • engage your heart and express yourself authentically
  • make an impact and ensure your message is memorable
  • avoid killing your credibility!


As an event organiser, you know how crucial it is to get the right speaker for your event. A speaker who engages, inspires and entertains while providing valuable takeaways for your audience. 


My Taking Centre Stage programmes are all designed to help entrepreneurs and business professionals to present with more confidence, credibility and conviction.


Working one to one with me offers you an opportunity to explore communications challenges in a safe and supportive environment. One to one sessions are a powerful way to get lasting results fast.
