You Were Born To Lead Your World



You have a big call on your life.

A magnificent, goosebumpy, high call.

 Humanity is evolving from the Age of Success to the Age of Integrity, and so being in alignment with your Wow... your calling... matters even more.

A Great Change.
New earth. New paradigm.

A new flavour of leadership is required.

And you were born for this.



Hi, I'm Merilyn


I'm here to activate new leadership - in life and business.

To unlock freedom through disrupting old rhythms and patterns.

To unlock your fullest Wow. 

"Merilyn is one of those super talented visionaries... she helps others see a bigger horizon for themselves, often when they're stuck in the inevitable minutia and can barely see beyond the action list! She's been a big influence on our brand and we love her to bits."

Liz Warom - MD & Founder of multiple award-winning, luxury brand Temple Spa |

"You want a coach who is knowledgeable, personable and one who cheerleaders for you and tells you when you mess up. And someone with incredible energy and who brings the fun factor. Merilyn is ALL that. "

David Siteman Garland - Creator of Rise To The Top and Create Awesome Online Courses

Holy Wow!

Categorising me the conventional way is tricky.
I've never been a fan of niching.

But I've been called:
Activator. Aesthete. Advisor. Architect.
Creative. Coach. Consultant. 
Designer. Director.
Energiser Bunny. Entrepreneur. Educator.
Intuitive. Interviewer.
Facilitator. Leader. Lecturer. 
Marketeer. Maximiser. Mentor.
Photographer. Podcaster. Preacher. Polymath. 
Renaissance Woman. 
Speaker. Strategist. 
Tastemaker. Visionary. Writer.

Tall Poppy. 

Or as one intuitive friend once said...
'Merilyn, you showcase brilliance'!

I've worked with 1000's of organisations, businesses, teams, causes and individuals all over the globe... from startups, to boutique consultancies, to not-for-profit empires, to celebrities and award-winning premium brands.

But my son just calls me mum.

Mostly, I'm a down-to-earth Australian, with a dash of self-doubt, a wicked laugh, a love of British humour, and a determination to wake up humanity.

"Merilyn's story resonates with me. It's so inspiring and women can relate to it completely."

Sigrun - Europe's #1 Business Mentor and Award Winning Entrepreneur |

Philippa Smit - Learning Consultant, Speaker & Author

"Merilyn lives leadership with contagious energy and passion and selflessly champions others to be the absolute best they can be. Great things ahead for anyone who aligns with what Merilyn does - you’ll stand on the shoulders of giants! "

Neil Michael - Exercise Physiologist, Health & Rehabilitation Coach

"Whether in front of one individual or a sea of people, Merilyn somehow touches each person. I still use her teachings in my business, over 20 years later. Mostly, she communicates to me through who she is - a strong, successful woman who is able to have it all: success and be an amazing mother."

Corrine Taylor - Managing Director, Australia

“Merilyn has had the profoundest positive impact on me, not only as a leader of my entrepreneurial world, but also on me as a mother, friend, daughter, and all the other countless roles I possess! She'll move you from ticking off daily to-do lists to living an extraordinary conscious goal-driven life. Your future success depends on it."
