You and me in a Zoom room for 90 focussed minutes

This is for when you’ve got a case of brand shiny object syndrome and/or are overwhelmed about what steps to take to move your business forward.

First we’ll identify what your *real* issue is, then we’ll get you clear on your core brand foundations, and create an action plan. Clarity + Strategy = Hell Yes!


Pick My Brain

Have at my brain via Zoom for 45 minutes

This is for you if you’ve got a nugget of an idea or something that’s not quite clicking for you and need help to figure it out. Or you have a checklist of things you need some punchy answers for. 

You’ll come away clearer, lighter and ready to take some action. Fire away.


Brand Sprint

You and me in a 3-hour interactive workshop format

This is for you if:

⚡️ You know exactly who you’re targeting and what they need from you.

⚡️  You’re clear about the benefits your product or service can give them.

⚡️  You’re not clear about how your brand should ‘speak’ and ‘act’.

⚡️  You’re on a budget – time and cost wise. You want to get something solid quickly and cost effectively.

What my clients say about these types of sessions

I had a “pick my brain” call with Melissa about relaunching my brand. She is super friendly and very knowledgeable. Not only I got the confirmations and info I needed, but I felt empowered and confident in what I am doing. Melissa also gave me great feedback about what I am doing already so I actually got more than expected from the call.

The session with Melissa was a game-changer. With her talent to see the big picture and add missing puzzle peaces, she is the most supportive business friend anybody can have. Her material is well structured and lovely presented. I got specific guidance to lead my company towards miracles! I only wish I had collaborated with Melissa already 5 Years ago!

About working together on a strategy project…

If you’re in search for a great brand strategist, Melissa is the person you’re looking for. I’ve rarely worked with someone who’s so capable, lovely to work with, supportive even after your project is formally over, and happy to go the extra mile when delivering.

Thank you Melissa for your professionalism, support and overall great personality 🙂

Working with Melissa was an absolute delight. She is very professional yet easy going, has a great sense of humour and masters her domain.

Starting the process, I wasn’t even sure what I wanted my brand to represent, and through working with Melissa, I’ve managed to get a clear picture of who I am (as my brand), who my target is and what does it all mean. My Brand Book covered everything I needed to go ahead and start my branding work i.e logo design, website design, social media presence etc. I’ve handed it to both my graphic designer and my website developer and they just ‘got’ it.
