My intention is to enable you.

My intention is to help you uncover your strongest foundations. From these foundations you can lead and create powerfully. Understanding yourself, what limits you and what enables you, is the key to having more impact. It enables you to create and lead from a place of deep understanding, not only of yourself but of humanity and our ever changing world.

This is a place of connection, compassion, confidence and possibility.

"Melis is one of the most outstanding individuals I have known in both professional and personal capacities. Her understanding of human-centred design is profound, yet never overwhelming to those new to her style and techniques. She has been a pioneer in the fields of User Experience and Service Design for well over a decade, and I have always grown from our collaborations. A beacon for our industry."
