I do like being social and talking in the real world too, so if you’d like me to come along and speak at your event or interview me for your print or online material thanks very much for thinking of me.
I regularly speak at events about the social world and have been interviewed for the MacCauley and Co show on BBC Radio Scotland, delivered a social keynote at the OM Yoga Show at London Olympia and regularly share my social thing at networking events.
I also have weekly Social Live Sessions held on Facebook, you can join me in the Scarletta Facebook Tribe and watch all the replays to date. Request access here.
Melanie Mackie is the Social Stylist and founder at Scarletta Media.
Melanie works with female entrepreneurs to support and encourage them to powerfully show up online, speak their authentic truth, share their wisdom and expertise to create and establish their unique social style and living brands.
Having been immersed in the social world since 2008, Melanie was an early adopter of social media marketing in the UK and has worked on campaigns with business owners and SME’s across a range of sectors.
Carving out an authentic personable social identity online is a challenge for many and she intuitively unlocks her clients potential and supports and encourages them to show up online and speak out. To give themselves permission to be who they really are whilst demonstrating their unique talent. And to feel competent to use the online world with ease and in their own unique social style and flow.
Which means they feel empowered to tell their stories, confidently able to share their expertise, love to connect with and serve their people as well as grow their petite businesses.
Melanie’s Speaking Style is
Straight-talking. Grounded. Compelling. Unique. Natural. Fun. Informative. Jargon-free. Insightful. Strategic. Inclusive. Soul-Centred. Social.

“A massive thank you to Melanie who kindly presented at our Creative Cumulus meeting on social media. With so much choice of social media platforms it can be overwhelming. Melanie was able to help clear the fog and offer useful tips that could be easily implemented into our already busy working days. We have been putting into practice some of tips Melanie shared with us and already seeing the difference in the response we receive. Highly recommend Melanie for speaker sessions and for her expertise.” Tamalia Reeves-Pyke, Flatlizard Creative
“Melanie has run several excellent sessions on social media and marketing for our creative networking group in Reading. Her presentation style is fantastic, she really engages her audience and makes the subject matter clear and interesting, and always provides some new and useful tips to use in business and planning. Melanie’s knowledge and understanding of marketing and business helps her to develop a distinctive style and brand for her clients, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to brand their business and learn about social media.” Catherine Hadler Creative Commercial Photography
“Melanie’s presentation was delivered in a professional, confident and authoritative, but relaxed manner. It was well structured and during the talk on social media she was able to field, and respond, to questions from the audience at all times, returning to the subject matter without hesitation or losing the flow and impact of her presentation. Her easy style of delivery was gentle on the ears, but with maximum impact and not too technical (especially with this non-techie)!!!!”
Ray Bennett – Attendee at the OM Yoga Show London Olympia
“I have had the pleasure of seeing Melanie present on two different occasions. She’s brilliant and I look forward to being a part of her audience again in the future. Mel knows her stuff and is seriously impressive in her vast knowledge of all things social. But the reason I think she’s so amazing is that she manages to speak in a language everyone can understand. She speaks to and encourages the novice who’s frightened of putting themselves out there without patronising the more socially media savvy members of the audience. I could go on but one other thing to add is Mel’s generosity with her knowledge and experience. Mel tells you what she does, she offers brilliant time saving tips and advice to get you going straight away. She’s not to miss!” Rachel Bradley, Jon Bradley Photography
“I met Melanie at a networking meeting where she delivered a very succinct and useful presentation, in a short time frame, on social media. Her knowledge and ability to put it across in a way for all the audience to understand was excellent. She left us in no uncertain terms what we could do immediately to improve our social media skills!” Heidi Strickland-Clark Owner FastTrack Fit Camp
