Events Manager

Melanie (Mel) is an entertainment business professional with over 20 years of experience in live events. She attended the University of Glamorgan in South Wales, UK, where she graduated with a Diploma in Business Studies and a B.A. (Hons) in Communications and Linguistics. Before moving to Canada to work for Cirque Du Soleil as International Tour Planner and Contract Negotiator, Mel worked as an internationally renowned Live Music Agent in London, England, representing a roster and being responsible for the careers of over 100 artists worldwide. When the pandemic hit and the entertainment world shut down, Mel retrained as a UX researcher and joined a leading Canadian UX company, Yu Centrik, who ICC hired to conduct user research and human-centered design for their new Digital Engagement platform. Mel played a crucial role in planning and executing the study and was deeply affected by ICC’s mission. She consequently joined the ICC team in September 2021.
Mel enjoys yoga, karaoke, Christmas movies all year round, and family hikes with her husband and 2-year-old son outside of work.
