She believes email marketing is essential and – with the right pieces in place – you’re all set to benefit from this powerful channel.
She loves the email marketing industry because it’s the intersection between the technical and creative worlds, and it inspires and fuels her inner geek.
Melaina is always asking herself and her team, “How can we make email marketing better?”

Jenny is a creative communicator, independence coach, low-vision awareness consultant and an innovator.
Her experience of living with a degenerative eye disease, for more than 45 years, has given her a unique perspective on navigating life, relationships, physical environments, public transport and digital spaces independently. She now uses this knowledge to help others who are new to adapting to low vision, and those who design for inclusion of all people.
She has created a product called a PADPERCH, which is a stand that allows visually impaired people to use free Apps on their smart devices, for electronic magnifying or text reading.
Thanks to an award from the South African Breweries Foundation, the product is currently being refined for manufacture.
