With a firm basis of over 15 years in project management, often overseeing multiple projects, I'm known as a creative organiser who can translate more technical themes to the greater public. Someone with a hands on mentality, an international network, experienced in managing risks, sustainability planning and the capability to quickly get to the core of the matter.
If you are looking for someone to manage your projects and to help you create maximum impact, please contact me.

«It is a pleasure to work with Melanie. She is a dynamic, practical and creative colleague with great communication skills. The five months Melanie was part of the Knowledge Exchange, as temporary SURF representative, her energy and drive helped us to improve our promotional approach and use of visualisations. Her expertise and drive proved vital to organise effective discussions at a major KE workshop.»

«While working for LIBER Melanie exceeded her job requirements. The reporting processes that Melanie has set up are of a very high quality as was the organisation of the final conference for the PASTEUR4OA project. Feedback from project partners is that Melanie tries to listen to all groups and comes up with the best solution for everyone. An example like the LIBER Open Science Café at the EU Presidency Conference, that came about as a result of Melanie’s initiative, raised LIBER’s profile and showed Melanie’s innovativeness and ability to mobilise the team.»
