I am a freelance researcher and consultant working in the arts and cultural sector, currently based in London, UK. I am also a Research Fellow at Cass Business School on the executive learning programme Boosting Resilience: Survival Skills for the New Normal.

“Melissa is an expert consultant and researcher. She anticipated my organisation’s needs, and the final report exceeded expectations. Melissa is detail-oriented, articulate, and enthusiastic. She was eager to collaborate and asked the tough questions in order to produce high-quality research. I would happily work with Melissa again as a consultant.

Melissa’s attention to detail, analytical approach, and thirst for evidence-based decision-making are second to none. She has the innate ability to analyse and digest complex information, summarise it succinctly, and communicate it effectively, whether to stakeholders or colleagues.
