Mike Saunders – Founder and CEO of DigitLab, Keynote Speaker & Author

Melanie chaired a conference that I spoke at around the topic of social media. She is a well articulated and professional facilitator and did a great job at tying up all the presentations to provide delegates with a common theme and information stream.

I also know Melanie through her exploits on twitter through #TBD and have been excited to see how much she has achieved for this project primarily using twitter as a marketing tool. Her understanding of this dynamic social medium goes far beyond the average social media expert.

Rod Walker – Owner, Cut Mustard Restaurant Solutions

Melanie and I worked together at Sun International when I was General Manager of Carnival City. Melanie was based at Sun International’s head office, working in Marketing for the Gaming North division. Her role was to oversee marketing activities across the division and directly manage O&M (Ogilvy) across all properties. In addition, we relied on her to ensure that her properties in the division received correct profiling and exposure in the Group customer publications. She was a passionate and energetic team member, with a delightful personality, and built exceptional relationships with my team. She made it easy for the casino marketing team and department heads to take advice and direction from her, and her experience in Gaming gave her added credibility and value to our operation. Her progress in banking at the highest levels is testament to her knowledge and capacity, and came as no surprise to me as I watched her career progress.

Mosidi Mokgele Regional Head: Marketing and Communication

I will forever be grateful for the numerous opportunities you afforded me when I was reporting to you directly. You proved on many occasions just how much you can trust those reporting to you, enough for them to represent you on strategic forums and even empowering them to make decisions on your behalf. Very few leaders can do that. I did not know you until we started working together but you gave me a chance to thrive and stretched me in ways I could never imagine possible. As a result, I was able to discover skills in me that I did not realise I had. I learned a lot under your leadership and what I valued the most, are the exposure you afforded me as well as the space to challenge status quo with enough room to be innovative. Where I failed, I was able to accept my mistakes and learn from them. Because of your enquisitive nature, it has rubbed-off on some of us. Our one-on-one sessions were a delight because it was not about what I did not do right but more about what support you could give me, after our usual robust engagements on work and life issues in general. I am truly grateful to have reported to you and learned so much during that tenure. You certainly left a mark not only in my career but in my life in general.
