Mel is a very authentic and inspiring communicator. She has a very unique “energetic” and trusting personality which makes it easy for you to want to work with her. She has a deep understanding of the relevant issues in her field and has the client interest at heart.

Mel is a pleasure to do business with. She is driven by the rare mix of professional, ethical and strong personal values. I have no doubt that Agile People Partners will continue to offer valuable advices and HR solutions in the years to come
Mel delivered the opening Keynote at my Strengths Based Leadership Conference and scored one of the highest ratings for her presentation on Values-based Principles. Next to her expertise in all matters related to Human Resources and Organisational Development, she is a pleasure to work with, as her positive energy and professional enthusiasm is highly contagious. She is an open minded professional with the ability to change the game while keeping the players on the field.
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for your contribution to the HR Summit this week. You’re a pleasure to work with, a rock star and a truly inspiring HR professional all in one!
Melinda’s positive profile and contribution to the HR community has matured exponentially in the past 10 years. She continually demonstrates high integrity in interactions and has the terrific ability to be both warm and frank. Melinda is someone who takes commitment seriously and wouldn’t take one on without giving her full. She is a pleasure to work and spend time with.
Mel from Agile People Partners is a highly capable and reliable HR professional who has helped our business over the last 18 months take our HR function and People strategies to the next level.
We have engaged with Mel under a number of models over the time she worked with us.
Initially she came on-board as an interim on-site part time HR Manager whilst we went through a period of rapid business growth. During this time she fostered enduring relationships with the management team as well as the greater operational community. Mel mentored our junior HR professional who is now undertaking tertiary qualifications in HR and seeking to further pursue a career as an HR professional. Mel drove a number of HR projects for our business including our people development and mentoring program, scoping and commencing implementation of an HRIS, streamlining and updating our employee contracts and participating in a number of working groups and committees around Culture, Attrition, EVP and visa/sponsorships.
Shortly after this we utilised the Agile People Partners HR plug-in service where Mel provided us with an “on-call” HR service. Now we know Mel we will not hesitate to contact her to assist us with HR Projects and people training and to provide us with HR advise as needed along our journey as a growing business.
At Peakbound we recognise the value in having support partners who can be flexible to our business needs coupled with quality output and reliability. Agile People Partners have certainly delivered on all of these counts and we would recommend them to any business.
"Thank you for providing us at Mr AV with such amazing support throughout our challenging time as a small business. Mel, your professionalism, invaluable advice, experience and expertise was greatly appreciated as is our ongoing relationship."
