MELISSA McGRODER
Founder + CEO

Hospitality makes me happy.

There was nothing like the sound of clinking glasses filtering up from the Coogee Bay Hotel beer garden on a Friday afternoon and the excited hum of a growing crowd settling in to woo the oncoming weekend with joy.

Fast forward 10 or so years and I still think back to those heady days and how many venues I've had the absolute pleasure of working with since. The fundamentals I learned have been honed and I've certainly grown up, but I've never strayed from within the hospitality sector - why would anyone?

I established My Marketing Department (MMD) to allow myself to work with more people in more venues and in more ways...

TRENT KELLY
Marketing / Account Manager

I’ve been passionate about hospitality since day one. I walked into my local pub at 18, took a job as a glassie to support myself through university, and never looked back.

After mastering front-of-house operations across food & beverage, gaming, functions and major events, I made the transition into sales and marketing and have since had marketing management roles at venue and group level in clubs and pubs.

My marketing experience has allowed me to understand what customers want and how to deliver it to them, and my operations knowledge enables me to execute things in a way that will work effectively for your venue.

MARIE-MARIE FALISE
Marketing Projects Manager

Born and raised in France, I have a long history working within the hospitality industry.

Since the age of 16, I dedicated all my Summers and spare time working in bars, restaurants, cafés and pubs. It is an industry that I truly love - there is always something to do, someone to talk to and the excitement never stops.

I graduated with a Masters Degree in Strategic Marketing and Brand Development in 2014. As a part of my masters, I had to validate a work experience overseas and I had the fantastic opportunity to work for EXM Marketing, a branch of Vivaldi PR in Bangkok.

This 6 month experience was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done and convinced me that I wanted to travel the world and work in the marketing field...

WE BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS

SUE JENKINS
"Mel and her team started working with us 12 months ago due to changes in our team. It was quite different for the Club not to have a marketing team on site, so it was vital that Mel's organisational skills and delivery of campaigns were spot on and I was not left guessing!

We did something quite different for Mel and ourselves by having project based outcomes, which meant Mel could continue to be quite strategic and focused on forward delivery and not fire fighting. The relationship has been very successful and we highly recommend Mel and her team to get your business in the space it needs to be. All of Mel's work is broken down in stages and steps to be simple to follow and execute. Nothing is too difficult and Mel certainly makes you feel that your business in number 1! "
SARA BELLING
"I’ve worked with Melissa for a few years in various capacities.

Mel is a positive, ‘can do’ experienced marketing and strategic consultant. Mel along with her team are able to take a brief and immerse themselves in the business and be a real part of it. Mel adds value by her ability to think through logically what is required to turn concept into reality and is highly creative. Alongside her capabilities, Mel is in touch with what’s on trend and keeps abreast of what’s happening in our industry.

She is a pleasure to deal with and it’s always so easy. Her talent and technique is worth every penny!"
KERRIE BRIEN
“I have worked with Melissa from MMD over the past 10 years in various hospitality venues.

MMD have an excellent understanding of hospitality marketing and business needs. They are current with the latest social media marketing tools as well as general marketing & advertising.

MMD takes the time to learn your business’ needs.”
STEWART PARSONS
“MMD lead the way in effective social media advertising and website design. Their graphics team also hit the mark with flyers and newsletters. So impressed.”
SARAH CASEY
"I started in a marketing role with absolutely no experience. I was lucky enough to have Melissa on board to guide me along and teach me everything I need to know. Such an excellent mentor!"
GEORGE MIKHAIL
Thanks to Melissa and her team at MMD I have been able to successfully operate and open multiple cafes with out having the headaches of spending hours on end designing menus and themes for the café. Melissa has been great helping with ideas that inspire to push boundaries and not fall behind the times.
FAYE HOLLANDS
"Melissa is an expert in her field ... she knows her 'stuff' back to front, works with integrity and professionalism, and is a smart and savvy businesswoman. Full of energy and motivation, she brings years of expertise to her clients along with a personalised service, and genuine care for great results and happy customers. I would highly recommend working with Melissa if you want to build a strong brand, improve your marketing, and ultimately increase your profits."
TIM COX
"Melissa brought excellent strategy, energy and enthusiasm to the Coogee Bay Hotel Marketing department. Her strength in planning and implementation always gave our promotions the best chance of success. Mel was very easy to work with as she applied a common sense and collaborative approach which was critical in a multi-faceted operation such as the CBH. Her passion to see constant improvement drove her team and colleagues to continually strive for better outcomes."
