Melanie and Talking Sticks bridge an important gap. They bring deep and purposeful voices from around the world to large, sometimes smaller, audiences. Melanie is able to walk between the two worlds, communicating in the languages of both to deliver conversations where they’re needed. Having worked directly with Mel I can vouch for her professionalism, kindness and for her ability to walk her mindful talk.

Our new salon-learning experiences are offered throughout the year and as bespoke experiences in-house.


Our Experiences

We evoke, provoke and inspire a burgeoning community of c-suites, entrepreneurs, executives, directors, intrapreneurs, people gurus, coaches, inspired individuals and emerging leaders – we call them cultural creatives, urban monks, social entrepreneurs, changemakers, and future shapers, and extraordinary ordinary folk.  

Like you, they traverse the worlds of work and play. They’re individuals with big dreams and deep life aspirations. They come to learn, share, and connect. They take away wisdom and life learnings from our event experiences and they take away know-how for better working lives.

Presenting a hybrid of outstanding creativity, performance and exceptional thought leadership our experiences are designed to connect head and heart, logic and imagination, reason and mystery. They are designed to change the game of your life.

Our purpose is to feed this growing hunger, and nourish the hungry ones so that we humans are fully alive at work and play. We live and breathe transforming conversation.

"I left the event feeling warm and uplifted, like my spirit had been fed and I was able to suspend time and just enjoy the beauty of language and stories".
