Brenda Meller bio: full version
Chief Engagement Officer
Brenda Meller helps solopreneurs, business professionals, and job seekers enjoy a bigger slice of the LinkedIn pie.
An introvert at heart, she first realized the power of social media when making a career change using LinkedIn at the height of Michigan’s downturn in 2008. She started sharing her knowledge of social media through workshops, webinars, presentations, and via blogs.
In 2017, the universe nudged Brenda forward and her side hustle led to her dream job with the launch of Meller Marketing. In 2019, she set and met a personal stretch goal and rewarded herself with a promotion to Chief Engagement Officer. In 2020, she completed her goal of writing her first book, now available in paperback, e-book, and in audiobook formats. In 2023, she launched her first podcast, "Enthusiastically Self-Employed." Pretty amazing stuff, wouldn't you agree? In the words of Alicia Keys, "This Girl is on Fire!"
Brenda’s approach to teaching LinkedIn has always been to present information in a “judgement-free” zone, where there are no bad questions, and to make sure every attendee is inspired, informed, and entertained while gaining new insights that can be put to use right away.
In addition to being self-taught across social media channels (LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and more), Brenda has a solid marketing education. She earned a bachelor of science in business administration degree with a specialization in marketing communications from Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, and a dual MBA and master of science in marketing from Walsh College. She also earned her competent communicator (CC) and competent leader (CL) status in Toastmasters International, a public speaking organization.
MichBusiness named Brenda a MichBusiness Most Valuable Professional in 2017 a Marketing & PR Prophet for Meller Marketing in 2019. Meller Marketing was also named a 2019 HRUnite! Advocate, celebrating her support of the HR community.
She is a member of Inforum, Michigan’s largest professional women’s networking association, where she also leads the Troy networking group. She is also a member of Detroit Together Digital. Meller Marketing is a member of the Detroit Economic Club.
Brenda is an enthusiastic speaker who loves engaging with audiences, both at conferences and corporate events. In 2019, she became a national speaker. Brenda has launched multiple online LinkedIn courses, giving solopreneurs, business professionals, and job seekers across the world the opportunity to learn online and join her live in group coaching calls.
