“Words cannot describe the impact that Melanie McClare had on me and my company while she was a consultant and advisor to our team. Smiles erupt whenever she comes into our offices. She had a calming presence and a “clear is kind” communication style that has guided us through many difficult situations. She understands me, as a CEO, and is able to translate my needs to the team in a way that is comprehensive and inspiring. I love the way she rallies excitement and fun with customers, board members and teammates, while at the same time demonstrating grit and resolute integrity.“
"We worked with Melanie to provide strategic insight during a critical market segmentation project regarding our technology platform. Not only did Melanie contribute meaningfully to the project, but she also laid the groundwork for systems and processes that we continue to use today! I would absolutely work with Melanie in the future and fully recommend working with her."
