Experienced, New Zealand based online business management for your service based business
I set up Melanco Consulting in 2018 after recently moving back to the Waikato after a stint in Auckland. Bringing with me 20 plus years experience across several industries. I knew it was time to set up my own business when I saw so many small-medium business owners struggling to get all their admin done and keep a sense of sanity.
Coming from a background as a Personal/Executive Assistant, I had a lot of really great transferable skills and knew I could help businesses get some good systems in place, and get rid of some of their overwhelm.
I wandered the earth frequently over the years spending a few years in London, which is where I first started gaining experience as a personal assistant. I also took some time while living in London to work as a nanny, so I guess you could say I’m great at organising people of all ages!
Having moved back to New Zealand in 2012 after 5 years in Australia, I secured a role working as a CEO’s assistant for FMCG. The pace was fast, and I found myself doing everything from data entry through to event management and board secretarial tasks.
One of the great things about having your own business, is you get to decide what services you will offer. Melanco Consulting focuses on four key services: personal assistant services, event management, graphic design and small business administration.
Having launched my own business, I got a real kick out of setting everything up. Looking at the best systems to use, creating a Rocketspark website, social media accounts, logos and branding and everything in between. I also love to teach, so as well as helping you get your life and business in order, I can also train you to use the systems we put in place.
“My initial concerns over using a remote or virtual consultant, was how would it work when we weren’t face to face. While Mel’s business is set up to provide virtual administration, one of the great things about Mel was her availability to also work from my office in Hamilton. So I guess she’s not strictly virtual, which works well for me and my team.”
