CAREER

CONNECT

Melanie's transition from the traditional television host into an influencer in the digital and social media-scape has been an organic process. By her own admission Melanie only feels comfortable working with a partner if they share a similar outlook on what success looks like. Her outstanding work with partners over recent years has been testament to this philosophy and has seen Melanie create exceptional results for her partners as a brand ambassador.

The key to success for any person or brand is to establish fans or a community and to have them talk about you. Melanie brings these two components into the social media space and assists with the establishment of community and the creation of conversation. She does this through activations, encapsulating the brand's philosophy and her brand presence synthesising with her partner's strategy. In short Melanie specialises in immersing herself in her partner's community.
