New: Tall Poppy Society



Hi, I'm Merilyn

Welcome To My Wow Revolution

For over two decades I've lived and worked internationally, equipping businesses, brands and their people to embody maximum wow...

People call me a Renaissance Woman: Architect. Strategist. Visionary. Aesthete. Writer. Photographer. Designer. Creative. Phoenix. Vegemite lover. Empath. Personal Brand Magician. Avant-garde Change Leadership Developer. 

But most of all I live to spark WOW. 

Mentoring leaders of leaders and showcasing their brilliance. 


Some Wildly Inspiring Stats...

3.6% who dream of starting their own business
actually do...

... and of those that do start, 90% fail by their 5th year.

88% of businesses owned by women make less than 100k. 

Only 2% of women owned-businesses make more than a million.

You might be thinking - 'What is she on? These stats are dreadful'!

I say... wow, just look at the potential, ripe for the picking. 


Time to stand up even taller because the world needs your wow. 

Allow me to showcase your brilliance.
