Branded Talks

Melanie Spring of Sisarina is a professional speaker and brand strategist. First, you'll meet with Melanie 3 times in-person (or via Skype) to craft your 5- to 8-minute talk. You'll work together in a way that helps you stay true to your own brand and share your story in your words. From the content & your body language to using the whole stage, she'll make sure you show off once you get in front of an audience.

On the day of the event, we'll get together as a group of speakers from 12noon until 5pm and get group coaching. You'll also give a trial run of your talk twice on the theater stage.

What People Say About Melanie & Patrick

Melanie Spring is an awesome speaker – the things she was saying were the same things I'd been thinking right along but couldn't articulate. It's like she was in my head! Melanie calls herself the "Approachable Badass" and that's true: she'll definitely bark but won't bite... unless you deliberately piss her off. Then she'll straight up punch you in the face.
- Kris Kaplan, K2
Melanie's impressive background with Sisarina, and the presentation she did at the American Marketing Association National Conference made her the perfect speaker to be at the largest marketing conference in Scandinavia, Dialog Konferansen!
- Arild Horsberg, Bring Dialog
Melanie was absolutely fantastic. As soon as she walked in the room you knew her presentation was going to be a breath of fresh air. Her personality filled the room as she greeted each guest with a warm and authentic hug. Melanie presented her information in a way that was relatable, entertaining and unique.
- Laura Wallace, President, AAF-Greater Frederick
I’ve been speaking for eight years, but could never seem to get good promotional videos from the sessions. Once I engaged Patrick, everything changed. His team has done several videos for me, and I’m very pleased with the results. He is a skilled editor, and has a fine eye for interesting and artistic camera angles.
- Mike Schmidtmann, National Speakers Association
What a kick you are, Melanie! Thanks for making me look good as Conference Chair and delivering our keynote. You hit the mark and sent our attendees home with lots of good ideas to rock their business. I couldn't have asked for more professional speaker!!"
- Debbie Gilster, AADMM Conference Chair
