Say Hello to Your New Secret Weapon

“Money is made by efficiency – invest in it.” 

– Mike Michalowicz

I am Melody Sadé Abeni – also known as the Engineer of Calm – and I’m an independent Business Coordinator who primarily works with boutique consultancies and solo entrepreneurs.

Specialising in the big-picture operational tasks, my aim is to step in as a proactive ‘go-to’ to help busy leaders like you to get your sh*t together, to save your energy for the tasks in your “zone of genius”, and to increase your overall team productivity so that you can have a greater impact with what you do!

My clients work with me because:

I speak their language

Having worked within fast-paced consultancies & investment firms, I appreciate the calibre of the processes, the need for reliable proactivity and the importance of how you present yourself to your clients.

I'm attentive

I am selective in who I choose to work with and purposely limit the number of clients that I work with at any given time, focusing on building long-term relationships over short-term ad hoc work.

I care

Running a business is hard - and life doesn’t wait for you in the background. As well as a capable pair of hands, I also lend you a non-judgmental pair of ears: tell me about your child’s school play or your puppy’s operation - I’m genuinely listening and I'll protect your time/mental load where necessary.

Engineer of Calm

If you see your business support function solely as a glorified receptionist and/or stationery procurer, or you’ve decided that you are managing fine all on your own (show off!) then this service isn’t for you.

But, if you:

  • Have reached a 'tipping point' where you know that your business can grow faster if you just stop micromanaging everything...
  • Have no idea where to start in terms of hiring someone with the right experience and interpersonal skills...
  • Would like to work with someone who cares about you as a person, first and foremost, and who will have your back in both the practical and the holistic matters...

…then this service is definitely for you!

In summary: I think in human-centred systems, as I’m a legal geek and an ex-clinical rehabilitation therapist who also comes from a process-driven background in the corporate world.

Would you like me to bring the essence of those experiences to help your productivity and, ultimately, your bottom line?
