What people are saying

“Mel is as engaging on the virtual stage as she is in person. Her raw passion, candor and energy are not inhibited by a screen, and her message always resonates with our viewers. As our top ranked speaker at our 2020 Virtual event, and up against THE best, it’s a no brainer to ask Mel back to the “stage”, again!
She does not disappoint! ”

SUCCESS Partners
“Mel was inspirational, comforting, challenging and pragmatic, all wrapped into one. Although our engagement was done virtually, she made all 4,000 associates feel that she was in their living room, engaging them directly. Her impact will be profound, both personally for our associates, as well as for our business as we emerge stronger in a post COVID world.”
Novartis

“I have been doing what I do for over 20 years – almost 8 with HFMA – and in that time I have never worked with a speaker as engaged as Mel. Her commitment and investment in making ours a successful event is unprecedented. I look forward to working with her on the rest of our program.”

Director, Conferences & Travel, HFMA

“Mel’s what they would call a five-tool player in baseball. She’s teaching while being provocative and that’s not an easy thing to do. What she adds to the mix at CNN, which is very important, she gives you all of those things we’re looking for, but also gives you some palette of humanity. Because it’s not just about the facts, it’s about the feel. And Mel has that in a unique way. What lawyers often miss is the feeling that you have about a situation when you don’t understand how the process works. Mel gets when things aren’t OK and she gets the difference between someone having the right to do something and something being right to do. She gets that from the perspective of prosecutions, she gets that from the perspective of victimization. She just gets it.”

Anchor, New Day, CNN

“We can’t thank you enough for presenting at our National Conference in Dallas, Texas. Your presentation and personal engagement with our Stylists have made a lasting and significant impact on our entire sales force. Our Stylists walked away feeling empowered, encouraged and eager to build their business, cultivate their leadership skills and dive deep with their own personal development. You have truly inspired our company to reach for new heights – thank you.”

CEO, J. Hilburn
