BRAND STRATEGIST

STRATEGY + WORKSHOPS

You decided it’s time to rock your brand. I believe branding starts on the inside. Bring me in and I’ll go deep with your team, figure out what your brand is, then make sure you can shake it all over the place. Workshops, conversations, and lots of note-taking. It’s like therapy, except for the fact that therapy cares how YOU feel. I care how EVERYONE ELSE feels about you.

more about strategy

 

TED-style talks at your office or conference. When branding is on the agenda, I’m in. From storytelling and pitching to marketing and your life, I give talks and workshops on how you can rock your brand. Let’s rock your next get-together and make sure everyone walks away with a to-do list, bold ideas, and the inspiration to go bigger.

NICE THINGS ABOUT ME
Melanie was absolutely fantastic. As soon as she walked in the room you knew her presentation was going to be a breath of fresh air. Her personality filled the room as she greeted each guest with a warm and authentic hug. Melanie presented her information in a way that was relatable, entertaining and unique. The AAF-GF attendees were pumped when they left because they had tools they could take back and implement immediately. I highly recommend Melanie if you're ready to absorb fresh and insightful information.
- Laura Wallace, President, AAF-Greater Frederick
I really enjoyed your talk at the Richmond AMA. I was able to use the brand voice illustration with my team right after the talk. From my perspective, the idea of a spokesperson is powerful. It opens up the creative process in unexpected ways. We often limit our thinking because after all who could afford a spokesperson. Thanks for sharing your brand expertise!
- Joseph Ruiz, Inbound Marketing Consultant
"What a kick you are! Thanks for making me look good as Conference Chair and delivering our keynote. You hit the mark and sent our attendees home with lots of good ideas to rock their business. I couldn't have asked for more professional speaker!!"
- Debbie Gilster, AADMM Conference Chair and Partner, At Home FinanceCare, LLC
If you want a speaker to make your audience walk out on fire, you need Melanie Spring. She ROCKS her content as she teaches you how to rock yours! DC knows her as a branding genius. You should, too. Melanie is young, hip, cool, quirky, fun, and brilliant – all in one package. Passion pours out of her as she speaks, and audiences eat it up. I have recommended her to speak at several events and her evaluations all say she is the MVP of the day. If you are the meeting planner who hires her, she will make you a star!
- Jan Fox, Fox Talks
Melanie's novel approach to synthesizing sales and marketing efforts and her emphasis on branding really resonated with our audience. I and the attendees all learned a lot from her teachings. The Rock Your Sales webinar was one of the most popular ones we've had to boot.
- Brian Pesin, Contactually
I just wanted to write to say say thanks for a great presentation to our members. We had terrific response from everyone I talked to. You delivered a great program with solid content, lots of attendee engagement, plenty of fun and discussion, and many, many take-away gems for everyone. My members loved it! Please make sure you use me as a reference for future clients.
- Mark Levin, Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute
Melanie's impressive background with Sisarina, and the presentation she did at the American Marketing Association National Conference, made her the perfect speaker to be at the largest marketing conference in Scandinavia, Dialog Konferansen!
- Arild Horsberg, Bring Dialog
Melanie Spring is one of the most engaging and dynamic speakers Her Corner's Speaker Series has ever had. She brings together the rare combination of content expert, engaging speaker, and approachable individual whom people feel comfortable engaging with to ask questions. She is the best subject matter experts in the field of Branding that I have ever met and a highly skilled and trained public speaker.
