I'm Melissa Sandon, Founder of Woman & Earth. I've worked with hundreds of businesses, leaders and entrepreneurs across many industries to develop their ideas and passions into viable and thriving offerings, movements and enterprises.
I offer program development consulting to help you refine your vision, map your programmatic needs and develop a robust and compelling program that creates meaningful and measurable impact.
I've worked as a passionate and strategic program manager with experience spanning across business, women in business, training, government, program/project management, climate change, community development, strategy development, stakeholder engagement, community consultation, legal and risk management, contract management, financial management and government implementation.
I love mentoring and strategic support, having coached and mentored hundreds of small business owners across all levels of their leadership and business success. I hold a space of innovation and adaptation for individuals and organisations.
I’ve been running a successful online business training academy for 10 years. Previously, I was responsible for managing and delivering a multi-million-dollar program for the Natural Environment and Sustainability Branch at Brisbane City Council, including education, behaviour change, emission reduction and design, development, and management of its community grants & rebates program. My expertise spans both policy and strategic development and project management/delivery, stakeholder engagement and community-facing communication and relationships.
I would be thrilled to learn about your mission and programmatic needs and how I may be able to support you to bring your vision to life. I'm fluent across all phases of the creation process: from idea generation to program mapping, strategic input, program evaluation and impact monitoring.
