we are talking sticks…

We are a team of passionate future shapers, committed to contributing our collective skills, talents and expertise for impact. A better world calls for humans who are awake, aware, mindful, inspired, and fuelled with purpose.

Mel Greblo, our Founder, has a driving purpose and passion - to bring people together to co-create change - for ourselves, business and the planet.

She's an artful gatherer, curator, ideas synthesist and strategist. With a burning fire in her to shift the needle in business for greater social and environmental good, she helps people move onto and along the purpose continuum, and helps business go beyond the tick box approach to Corporate Social Responsibility for deep engagement and results.

Mel has led purpose-driven organisations as Chief Executive and helped build the brands of some of Australia’s great educational, social, cultural and art institutions. Her connections, network and reputation across the purpose ecosystem are broad and deep.

Mel has three children, a thirst for learning, a love of nature & music. Curiosity is her true north.  She has a deep commitment to giving back, and a passion for social change at end of life and is currently Chair of the Board at The Groundswell Project.  

Mel is a natural leader and coach, giving the people around her room to grow as individuals. Mel is intelligent, creative and committed to excellence, she is one of the best and anyone fortunate enough to work with her will quickly bank the benefits from such a relationship.
