Mel is one of P4 Group’s forward-thinking Marketing Communications Director, with experience in delivering business outcomes for clients. Known as a problem solver and strategist for complex integrated marketing and communication projects, Mel is a trusted advisor to leadership teams. Having advised clients through the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, developed visions for multi-billion major projects and led national education campaigns for world-first research, Mel looks at the bigger picture, bringing strategic thinking and a nimble approach into the fold.
Consolidating more than 20 years’ of consulting and business experience to join P4 Group as a Director, where leadership, achieving business outcomes for clients, personal career goals and mum challenges were all wrapped into one. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to pulling off the career vs mum balance. It’s never an easy one to achieve!
Staying in a role for too long, when I knew it wasn’t for me. I did it out of loyalty, and still gave it my all, but it was mentally and emotionally exhausting. I love what I do, so when it becomes a challenge like that, I wish I’d stepped out sooner, so work didn’t feel like ‘work’.
Appreciate a good mentor that takes you under their wing. Ambition is everything, and a mentor shares a path to get you there. Also, don’t be too worried about taking the two years off to backpack around the world. It laid the foundation for who you are now, and you’ll appreciate your life and career once you get back.
Working on a bid for a multi-billion infrastructure project over several years. Being part of an international consulting team, with people who are the best at what they do and being stretched daily to the limit. I love a good challenge!
Looking at the bigger picture and pulling together a strategic approach across all comms disciplines to get outcomes achieved. Otherwise, copywriting. If I could choose just one thing to do every day, writing vision statements, key messages or any marketing content would be it. I don’t get to do much of it anymore, but I love it!
