Melinda Leth


Melinda is a strategist and innovator with over 10 years’ experience in helping for-profits, not-for-profits and governments create lasting commercial, social and environmental value.

Melinda advises organisations on how to co-create shared value through their strategies, business models, products and services, and partners. She also works with organisations to help measure and report the total value they create for stakeholders beyond traditional financial value.

Her deep expertise in strategy development, management, stakeholder engagement and reporting across a broad range of industries, elevates social and environmental programs from ‘a nice to do’ to an essential part of an organisations’ strategy and identity.

Recent projects include:

  • Innovative research on how eight Australian companies create and implement shared value initiatives.
  • A Shared Value strategy for the Australian beef industry.
  • One of Australia’s first Collective Impact projects, bringing together government, NFPs and for-profit organisations to address unemployment.
  • Measuring the total value created for a property company.
