“Melissa is so much more than a fabulous speaker. She’s an insightful problem solver who can quickly read an audience member’s situation and offer practical, relevant advice. There is no fluff in her presentations.
Melissa is committed to educating and motivating us to embrace social media and other smart marketing strategies so we can fully express ourselves and keep up with the changing design business.”
"Melissa Galt is a rock star! We hired her to speak on social media several times during one of our national conventions for our best customers. When word got out how great her first session was, there was a line out the door for the next session and we had to move her to a larger room!
I saw how engaged her audiences were. She combines the high energy of a younger social media expert with the wisdom of a savvy business owner who knows how to help other business owners succeed. We brought her back the following year.”
“Having worked more than 25 years in high-end corporate consulting, I have participated in hundreds of seminars and presentations and witnessed so many speakers with the same clichéd message. Melissa Galt was different.
Her thoughtful, substantive program was filled with solid advice from someone who has clearly been there and done that. Plus, she made the learning fun so we would remember and apply it. Her performance dazzled me.”
