“On the ball” is an understatement! I organize speakers for conferences, and Melissa was a joy to work with. She clearly practices what she preaches: she provided all the info I needed when I needed it so I could get event marketing and logistics moving forward. Not every speaker is so organized and punctual, and I definitely appreciate Melissa’s professionalism and organization.

Dr. Gratias spoke at a MPI Houston Luncheon of nearly 100 attendees of the topic of Productivity Rituals. As President of the chapter, I was very pleased with how she interacted with attendees, even during the networking session leading into the luncheon. Her message to the group was relevant and intriguing enough that a number of attendees approached her afterwards for further dialogue.

Melissa was the last speaker of the day, when attention generally begins to wane. However, she brought everyone’s energy level way up, because she had great information on organizational skills and because she was FUN. Many participants told me her information was the most useful of the day.
