Mellanie's presentation sent conference attendees home with determination and courage to change their lifestyles. Her very personal story touched the audience as well as challenged them to reevaluate their schedules, habits, relationships, and health status and take control of their lives by managing their health. Aside from being a delightful speaker, her story is most compelling and her tireless work as an advocate for women and heart disease makes her a perfect fit for any community-focused cardiovascular education program.

Mellanie True Hills gave an interesting, passionate, and educational presentation at our February 10th Go Red for Women Luncheon. We have heard many great responses from that day and it was a huge success partly because of Mellanie's great presentation. Her information was pertinent, timely and personal. It encouraged women to "love their heart" by getting check ups, eating right, and taking care of themselves.
This is a note from one of the attendees: "If it hadn't been for your book and your speech, I would have just ignored the signs and not gotten a check up. You are a blessing, and do make a difference."
We would recommend Mellanie for speaking at other AHA fund raisers.

It has been an honor to work with Mellanie at JC Penney, as an independent, and at Cisco. Mellanie is accessible, funny, smart, and well-read. She is able to translate techno-speak into the business results language my attendees need to hear. Mellanie is a stand out speaker. She does the extra things that make my job easier. An extraordinary passion for delivering a high quality result is Mellanie's key differentiator.
Barbara Gavin, Manager of Conferences, DCI
Mellanie communicates directly with the audience. She may talk about her own experience, but everybody can tell her presentations are about them. She's energizing.

I loved your presentation and learned a lot. I will incorporate what I learned into my existing plan. Thank you for the courage and compassion to offer your experience and information to assist others.
Your inviting and positive demeanor makes it easy to relate to you and your inspiring story.
I have had the pleasure of hearing you twice. I also saw you on TV recently. I have begun the small changes, but your presentation and handouts remind me that small steps don't work. I'm putting it all on paper. Thanks so much for sharing your message.
Your presentation helped me realize that I need to determine what is most important and use my skills to focus on that goal. I also now realize that stress can be a good thing, just as it can be a bad thing--it all depends on your attitude. Thanks.
I liked your enlightening nature about a very grave disease.

Mellanie Hills' presentation at the Forum quebecois de l'Internet in Montreal was a highlight for me not only because of her expertise on web strategies but also because of her genuine concern for organizational and human resources issues. Your presentation was the best of the whole Forum.
