Melanie Brown is the Speaker that really activates the word EmpowerMEnt.
Maximizing Effectiveness, everyone in the room is involved from the beginning. The standing ovation she received in the end said it all. I have never seen a Speaker do what she did, the Breakthrough was powerful!
Michelle CEO November 2, 2015
Melanie was such a delight to work with….that was a bonus! She quickly grasped my vision for the Go Red for Women Luncheon (fundraiser for the American Heart Assoc.) theme. At each meeting she had a new idea/concept for us to review……and seems like we always incorporated it into the program. While speaking, she is dynamic and certainly holds/grabs your attention. Exceptional woman!

“To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet”…. Melanie exudes this throughout her talks, as well as personal life, making everyone feel that there is something in them. Her energy, enthusiasm and smile is contagious. I left the conference with anticipation of attending future events that Melanie will be featured at and would highly recommend her for any event.

Melanie is inspirational, motivational, and packs a punch on her delivery of her presentation. I can’t wait to hear her again. I would travel miles to do just that… I watched her as she captivated a group of around 400 people that were not smiling much until Melanie started in. She is the true WOW factor!

I had the privilege to work with Melanie Brown on the Go Red for Women Luncheon planning committee. I had heard Melanie speak at previous events, so I knew it would be an energizing experience to work with her on this committee. Melanie attended each planning meeting with a purpose and desire to get involved, not only as the invited keynote speaker, but as a committee member, contributing to the success of the event. She helped contact businesses, gather donations and plan the logistics of the luncheon.
Melanie was the Keynote Speaker during the luncheon, delivering a message that was entertaining and informational. The room was captivated by her humor and delivery of the important components of what she called the “Winning Hand”. Melanie has a creative way of sharing the message of the event and encouraging those in attendance to support the cause. Melanie is truly a motivational speaker that will inspire your next audience!

Melanie Brown embraced the cause of fighting heart disease and stroke in South Dakota. She brought her energy and passion for everything she does to not only speak at our event, but also to help us fundraiser and recruit other volunteers. Melanie’s keynote address at our Go Red for Women Luncheon was funny, informative, moving, inspirational, and left all of us energized to move forward in life with renewed vigor and excitement. I’ve heard rave reviews from both sponsors and attendees – and couldn’t agree more. Melanie is wonderful!

I have not known Melanie long, but in the short time I have known her, she has been a very positive, uplifting and friendly person. I heard her speak recently at a Chamber sponsored event, and she was great. Her ideas and fun activities keep listeners interested and attentive, and she makes her audience really think about themselves and their business and how they can dream big and achieve the results they desire.

Melanie Brown is an outstanding motivational speaker. She gave the keynote address for the 2010 Sioux Falls Go Red for Women Luncheon, and she was a hit! She is extremely personable, easy to work with, knowledgeable and has a fantastic sense of humor. Melanie was flexible in adapting to our program schedule, and she had obviously “done her homework” to tailor her message so that it fit perfectly with our event. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and we heard many, many comments following the event regarding how much the audience enjoyed her program. I would highly recommend Melanie Brown if you are looking for a speaker that will lift you up and make you laugh!

Thank you so much for being part of the Nursing Student of South Dakota State Convention. Your presentation was awesome. Your ability to inspire and motivate is truly a gift! Your empowerMEnt message was perfect for student nurses and will facilitate their entry into the professional practice and will assist them to become responsible and accountable leaders in the field of nursing.
Venita Winterboer Nursing Student Association Faculty Advisor November 4, 2015
My mom went to one of Melanies “Inspire Your Greatness” seminars. She came home and started writing words on our bathroom mirror. Empower, inspire, achieve, success and be in the moment, to name a few. As a teenager I thought my mom was a little whacky for doing this and did not think much of it. As the weeks go by I see these words many times a day and they start to have meaning in my life as well and I feel a positive change taking place in myself. My mom gave me a blue stone she got from Melanie, at the seminar. I carry it with me everyday and it reminds me to “be in the moment” and of the words written on our mirror. her message affected my mom in a positive way and she is teaching me that same message. Melanie, your message reaches more than just those at your seminars, it trickles down to others. As one of those others that it has touched, I thank you!
Courtney McGreevy 15 yrs. old November 4, 2015
You can not say enough about this wonderful woman. I first met her this year in February, and from the start I knew this was a person I wanted to know. Her insight is priceless and her charm and charisma is captivating. She definately “KNOWS HER STUFF”. What she can do for your employees/team/personal/life/business is amazing. If you are looking at hiring her do not give it a second thought….just DO IT. Few people can impact others the way she can. She gets results and accepts no less. Her deep passion for truly making lives better, business/personal, is evident right away. She leaves you craving more out of life.

Melanie is an exceptional teacher and motivational speaker. She has helped me develop strategies for my personal and business life.

This was an amazing time for me. God put me in Melanie’s class in Sioux Falls, SD at my Region V Conference. I really needed this class to believe in me and what I do as my career! As you can see the power that two people have to believe in each other and the team. Thanks Linda, Melanie and all of Region V for the encouragement of Believing as a team We Can Do Anything! You don’t know how I so grew from this.
