"Melanie Spring is an awesome speaker – the things she was saying were the same things I'd been thinking right along but couldn't articulate. It's like she was in my head! Melanie calls herself the "Approachable Badass" and that's true: she'll definitely bark but won't bite... unless you deliberately piss her off. Then she'll straight up punch you in the face."
"Melanie’s workshop at our annual client and partner conference, Evolve, was the best way to kick off the event. We had employees, partners, and clients inspired by her stories and motivated to act, based on her bold yet humble asks. Melanie is a force. She connects with the audience and comes alive on stage. Her curated workshop was a huge success and I truly believe we moved the needle in our entire community of women, that extended into the entire event and continues to last."
Kristin Struttman, VP Strategic Partnerships at Trace3
"I had the great pleasure of attending a talk Melanie gave at one of our company events focused on women in technology. Melanie knocked my socks off! It was one of the most inspiring talks I’ve heard in my 12 years in this industry. She urged us to take a hard look at our lives, to reframe our internal dialog, to connect with our passions and make changes in our lives to better align with those passions. I was so inspired that I’m now actively making significant adjustments in my life so I can lead a life filled with purpose and joy. I have Melanie to thank!"
Charlene Gorman, Director of Innovation Sales at Trace3
"Melanie Spring is a dynamic and high energy speaker. Her style is beyond engaging… it’s inspirational. Her ability to motivate her audience to take action is absolutely unmatched! She provides simple and actionable takeaways that are applicable to attendees at all professional levels. Audiences love her fresh and upbeat delivery style. Typically we don’t bring speakers back in consecutive years at Kalamazoo SHRM, but she was so highly requested by our group that we have had her back several times!"
Shawn Premer, Chief Human Resources Officer at Consumers Credit Union
"I knew we needed a dynamic speaker for our biggest learning event of the year...after going through the usual suspects on the speaking circuit I was recommended Melanie Spring from an EO Detroit member. Melanie is anything but cookie cutter. This approachable badass will have you finding your own inner voice and celebrating what makes you and your business unique. As she closed I asked the audience of 100+ "how many of you got something actionable tonight from Melanie?" Every hand in the place shot up...you could feel the energy and excitement to take her ideas and run with them."
"Melanie Spring is hands down one of the most innovative and inspiring speakers I've seen in a decade. Her content, story, and hard-hitting message is unique in an industry swamped with "me too" diversity speakers. I would highly recommend her as a speaker at any event that requires a breath of fresh air that will have attendees leaving revved up and ready to go win."
"I was in the audience when Melanie spoke at our XChange conference. She rocked the audience the minute she stepped on stage. She provided wisdom on how each attendee could elevate their personal brand to rock their everyday as well as soar in business. I enjoyed the session immensely and left ready to rock my business not to mention she was one of the highest ranked sessions at the event."
Doris Branscombe, XChange Sales Director at The Channel Company
"Melanie gracefully and patiently guided our staff through the process of redefining our vision and creating a fresh, modern look and feel to our brand. We are tremendously happy with the outcome and couldn’t be any more grateful to have her guide us in this process."
Nedra Davis, Communications Manager at Unity Health Care
"When you look out on an audience and see everyone’s attention is focused on the speaker and not on their smartphones, you know you are witnessing something special. Melanie Spring did nothing short of rocking our XChange and Women of the Channel audiences with her high energy, insight and inspiration. She backs up her words with examples that business leaders can use to change the course of their business. If you are looking for a speaker who can make a difference then Melanie Spring is the perfect choice."
