MEL SCAFFOLDI am an Arts Consultant who helps people and organisations achieve sustainable, positive change through creative consultancy, facilitation and coaching.

I help people and organisations achieve sustainable, positive change through creative consultancy, facilitation and coaching.

Whether you’re at a crossroads with your work, idea or company, or want to turn that big tangle of possibilities into clear plans, I can provide the thinking and tools to make it happen.

I bring insight, enthusiasm and expertise, helping discover and develop the potential in people and processes.

I’m an independent Creative Consultant with 18 years’ experience in arts and culture. Having run organisations, including Theatre Bristol, and supported many individuals and companies, I know what it’s like to work in the creative sector; I understand the challenges, opportunities and landscape. I know that sometimes you need a new perspective, approach or injection of inspiration.

If this sounds like what you need right now, give me a shout to find out how we could work together.
