Hello! I’m Mel. I launched 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 transferrable skills and I knew I could help businesses get some good systems in place, and get rid of some of their overwhelm.
I’ve moved around a lot over the years having spent a few years in London, which is where my love of being a Personal Assistant began. I also took some time whilst 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 job 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. I have decided to focus 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 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.
