Melanie Dean

Melanie combines running a branding design consultancy with teaching and mentoring. Working with private clients and business studies students, she helps prepare them for the world of work.

With over 20 years’ experience in the communications industry specializing in health, food and drink, Melanie has instigated strategies and delivered solutions that raise awareness of health issues, champion best practice, promote training opportunities and encourage investment. Her portfolio of clients ranges from multi nationals to SMEs to sole traders.

Melanie’s interest in aromatherapy was aroused after qualifying as a holistic massage therapist in 2001. She decided to take some time out of her busy schedule to study the subject in depth, finally qualifying in 2004. Today she runs an aromatherapy clinic a few evenings a week in East Sussex.

Currently, alongside her other activities, Melanie teaches Practice Management and Business Awareness Neal’s Yard Remedies Aromatherapy Diploma students. She brings a wealth of practical experience in ‘managing your business’ with an emphasis on the importance of positioning. Put simply, creating the right product or service and then communicating that offer to a receptive target audience. Tools to help the business become a benefit rather than a burden.

Her courses are fun, eye opening, fast paced and, most definitely, hands on.
