Mele-Ane is the Director of Portfolio & Projects at Small Giants and, like Kaj (pronouced Kai) provides strategy and management support across the Small Giants portfolio of businesses and leads a number of the wonderful projects happening at SG.  After working for some years as a corporate lawyer (in Melbourne and Abu Dhabi) and in community and human rights law (in Kunnunurra and the Netherlands), Mele-Ane went on to complete an MBA (at Oxford University as an Associate Fellow at the Skoll Centre). Mele-Ane then followed her heart to this dream job… where she couldn’t be happier! She is proud to be the first female member of the Small Giants table tennis team and, it must be said, gives the boys in the office a run for their money when it comes to this favourite office past time…
