I’m Melissa, nice to meet you.

I’ve spent many years living and travelling around the world, and the key to my success in those endeavours has been my ability to engage and connect with others along the way. How we communicate is key to how well we engage and connect with people. I have been honing that skill around the world all my adult life. 

Skills that can be developed should never hold us back from achieving all we want to be in life. That’s why I started SocialBe in 2018, to empower people through education and upskilling in the key soft skills required to succeed and have personal impact in their professional lives and businesses.
