CUPS OF TEA CONSUMED
"I had the pleasure of working with Mel for around 9 months.
In that time Mel clearly defined our company's sales strategy. Mel did this holistically as she has unrivalled knowledge of account and project management, the NPD and innovation process and the ability to align all key-stakeholders.
Not only does she work with pace and focus Mel is a joy to work with. Mel has the emotional intelligence to hit the ground running in any organisation."
“I have known Mel Jewitt for over ten years and would highly recommend Mel’s commercial acumen, sincerity and attitude in handling major retail customers.
Mel’s partnership led skills and natural relationship style has over the years given her a very detailed insight into retail supply, product development, category and working closely with factories to ensure an effective business relationship is maintained and can grow good business.
Through team leadership Mel has always recognised the importance of people and taking the team with her aligned in common objectives and profitable business. I would recommend Mel to clients who value their customer relationships and require a good operator to take their business to another level.”
“I have found the strategic expertise and professional support provided by MJ Sales Support invaluable.
Mel has helped the business align more effectively to deliver strategic growth, and successfully facilitated a review of key development activities, which has resulted in a real step change in the NPD department, and a noticeable improvement in individual and team performance.
The varied and thorough support Mel can offer would be an asset to any business."
“I had the pleasure of working with Mel whilst at Maple Leaf Bakeries UK Ltd, where I was of Head of Innovation.
I found Mel to be very thorough with a clear understanding for NPD detail.
Mel had a positive energy and a personable nature - professional with both internal and external customers, reliable, and always willing to go the extra mile.
Mel is a true asset to any business.”
"Mel, thank you for your help.
Very much appreciated!"
“J&K’s work with Mel (MJ Sales Support) aimed to improve and more closely align our strategy with our main retail customer, as well as work on a major project with the same customer.
Both myself and my team here at J&K were very impressed with the high amount of knowledge Mel had of both the retailer, the category we were working on and also how to improve upon our strategy.
What we appreciated most about working with Mel was her ability to cut through the predictable politics of a project, keep everyone happy, and deliver the expected results and then some.
I would not hesitate to recommend Mel for any sales and/ or project work you might require.”
“I worked with Mel on various projects to deliver exciting private label projects to the major retailers. Mel is a hard working, positive person who always looks for solutions rather than problems.
I would highly recommend Mel to any business who is looking to grow their sales."
“MJ Sales Support was invaluable in coaching and up-skilling both myself and our sales team.
Mel tailored the approach required for our specific project, giving us the necessary tools and training to significantly improve the quality and content of our retailer relationships.
Additionally, Mel's ability to work at pace, with humour and patience ensured that our objectives were met in record time. In short, she's great."
“Thank you so much for all the hard work, resilience and perseverance you have shown during your time in the E2E team.
We are in so much more of a stronger position than when you started.
Your support to the rest of the team has also been excellent. It’s been a delight to have you.”
“Mel, you have a first rate track record of making a big difference in every organisation that you have worked with.
Companies need people who are agile, adaptable and focused on business success and you excel on all counts.”
“Melanie has brought great value to a number of businesses I have been fortunate to be associated with by consistently exceeding expectations and provides a significant understanding and empathy with the various food categories she is exposed to.
Melanie has an understanding of market trends and instincts for identifying new product development or category insight and ability to sell through and project lead. Not only can she provide stellar service to existing customers, but can operate in B2B and Business to partnership accounts.
Melanie has the combination of business and communication skills that makes her an all round commercial person with integrity."
"I have no hesitation in recommending the services of MJ Sales Support. Mel offers extensive knowledge of the food industry in the UK and Europe and has the added advantage of having worked with both retailers and suppliers.
I have worked with Mel on several occasions and found her knowledge and services invaluable. In addition to a thorough understanding of the market, Mel also understands the complexity of customer needs and customer trends, which was something I found particularly useful.
Attention to detail and dedicated professionalism make MJ Sales Support an ideal partner to work with for both small and large businesses alike."
“Melanie has worked with me for a number of years and has always demonstrated confident, capable and dedicated commercial skills.
Melanie offers a wide array of expertise and a wealth of experience, however her specialism focuses on formulating and developing effective strategic business plans which ultimately drive profitable growth.
I would recommend Melanie and see her as a key asset to any business.”
“MJ Sales Support worked with us on a number of improvement initiatives around cost control and product specification adherence targeted on a new business win.
Mel demonstrated great enthusiasm and structure to the project and helped the team quickly demonstrate tangible improvements both financially and on quality metrics for our customer.
I would recommend Mel’s project management skills to any business.”
