'We asked Melanie to work with us to rebrand the organisation, develop a much-needed new website and to build and deliver the marketing strategy for the 2013 Leeds Lieder Festival, all on a very restricted budget and to a very tight schedule.  She more than rose to the challenges, and I found working with her both inspirational and fun.  She was unfailingly supportive and a fount of ideas; and her ability to combine creative imagination with objectivity and realistic expectation really helped me to see the wood for the trees!'
Leeds Lieder Festival 2013

'In 2005 we appointed Melanie as our marketing consultant. She helped us turn the tide, increasing our visitor numbers year on year and crafted an external profile for Fairfax House which now means we punch well above our weight. Her work ethic is fantastic. She was instrumental in creating a superb website which is the envy of many and our event programme has created a huge amount of interest both locally and at a national level. I cannot praise her highly enough.'

'I worked with Melanie on an ambitious project involving school pupils and Snake Davis. Melanie was relentless in making sure that our ideas became real, and in overcoming obstacles that threatened at times to jeopordize the project. She showed great creativity in how she solved these problems and worked tirelessly to ensure that it was all a great success.' 
Sue Williamson, Burnholme College, York
