Her vast business experience, underpinned by a PhD in Human Factors (human-centred design), sees her focussed on reshaping the super systems of the future. This reshaping is essential to ensure we address the complex challenges facing humanity and the planet. Melis believes we can change our realities by changing our minds.

Melis is also the founder of Huddle Labs, a research capability innovating the definition of value in a post-capitalist society, Huddle Academy, a school focussed on building creative problem solving capabilities for individuals and organisations and Huddle Foundation, a platform that curates the connection between designers, philanthropists and social enterprises.

Melis' latest book is This Human. This Human reaches out to those who are curious, open-minded and are seeking to become masterful in their craft of designing meaningful alternate realities for humanity. The book empowers people to maximise the impact of their work by unveiling the mindsets that occur, and need to occur, to ensure this level of impact can be manifested in the world.
