Melanie Franklin- Agile Change Management Trainer

Who is Melanie Franklin

I have extensive experience at board level in commercial and not for profit organisations. I have dedicated the last 20 years to building the capability for change in organisations. This has exposed me to a wide range of organisational structures and individuals from around the world and it is this experience that I build on every day. Aside from the academic and professional qualifications that I acquired over this time, my ability to share new concepts and inspire others to embrace change and strive to improve their personal and professional performance is what I am most proud of.

I am very fortunate in that I love my work. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs I am at the point in my career where I am ‘self-actualising’! I find it hard to draw a line between work and hobby as I find what I do so stimulating and rewarding. I want my legacy to be increased skills and confidence in others to help make a difference. I measure my success by the success stories of those whom I coach and train and I am in the fortunate position that they write to me from all over the world to share their achievements.

I invest in my profession

As Chair of the Change Management Institute UK, I am dedicated to increasing the professionalism for managing change. I have built up a UK wide network of local chapters and created the UK Thought Leadership panel which brings together global leaders of large-scale transformations to debate our most pressing issues.


I develop my knowledge

I am not complacent. Change management is a relatively young profession and continues to develop, so I continue to develop my skills in related fields including portfolio management, benefits management, Agile approaches and neuroscience.
