We offer leadership mentorship and program development consulting.  

Do you have an idea, passion or burning desire to create change in the world with your gifts?

Woman &  Earth can help you bring it to life.

Collaboration, co-creation and wild innovation for women as leaders who have a burning desire to change the world.
Hi! i'm Melissa Sandon, Founder of Woman & Earth. I offer group and individual leadership mentorship to support you in all phases of the creative process: from idea conception, visioning, passion mapping, business development and creating a thriving ecosystem of your work in the world.

I'm depthed and fluent in the personal journey of feminised leadership, having studied embodiment, energetics and power dynamics of women occupying their passions and gifts in the world and stepping into the arena to use their voice and skills to change the world.

I hold a potent co-creative space, being able to weave possibility and innovation while also supporting you to crystallise and clarify the real-world applications of your work.

I've mentored hundreds of women to create passion-led endeavours, helping them map their unique body of work and thought-leadership and find the most aligned and abundant opportunities to connect your value to grateful clients.

It would be my honour to support you to rise in your leadership.

Do you have a program, mission or offering that needs new energy, vision or creating?
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.
