I help engineers become exceptional leaders

I know you are already a renowned specialist in your field. If you are ready to step up and have a greater influence in areas you care about, I will be there to guide you along the way.

I trained as an engineer; now I am a professional mentor.  Why am I doing this?  Because when I was promoted to Underground Mine Manager,  and then to executive level manager, and then started my own business in the agribusiness sector – I didn’t know anyone professionally that I respected and trusted enough to be my mentor; to have  someone to ask all the deep questions I needed answered about myself, about other people,  and about how to get things done – how to positively influence people, organisations and the world.  And do this all while balancing my life; and becoming a mother.  I needed someone independent whom I could trust to be in my court; no-matter what.  

My purpose, and why I am now a professional mentor – is to be that person in your court.  To help you expand your influence and your impact in any area of life you want to. I’ve been there done that so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did!

My passions are my family, helping people, my farm and living in nature.

Keynote speaker

l am a sought after keynote speaker, appealing to professionals who aspire or are already in leadership positions or running businesses. Using my 20+ year professional career as a foundation, and more recently as an agribusiness entrepreneur and professional mentor, my talks connect at a deep, down to earth level with people aspiring to make a difference in the world.

I can craft a keynote based on your requirements, however I’m also able to talk on the following topics:


To inspire others to ensure they are continuously learning in their role and life – essential to having an engaged and productive team.


To inspire people to get curious about how well they are managing energy, rather than time, in their life so that they can be exceptional leaders for their teams.

“I’ve spent the last 6 months working with Mel as part of her Leading for Success Mastermind program, and saying this program was helpful is an understatement.  I learned a lot about improving my leadership skills, dealing with the daily challenges of a managing role, people management, dealing with my managers and so much more…”
