Governance Compliance Administrator

“Money is made by efficiency – invest in it.” 

– Mike Michalowicz

I am Melody Sadé Abeni – also known as the Engineer of Calm – and I’m an independent administrator who primarily works at board level and within complex corporate structures.

I specialise in supporting broader operational tasks, as well as carrying out administrative tasks in relation to governance and compliance such as:

  • Carrying out 'Know Your Customer' (KYC) processes and compliant record keeping
  • Facilitating board meetings, minute taking and preparing agendas
  • Correspondence management, including drafting memorandums and articles of association
  • Company secretarial administration

My clients work with me because:

I speak their language

Having worked within fast-paced consultancies & investment firms, I appreciate the calibre of the processes, the need for reliable proactivity and the importance of how business leaders present themselves to their clients.

I'm attentive

I am selective with whom I choose to work with and purposely limit the number of clients who have my attention at any one time. My focus is on building long-term relationships, regardless of the nature of the work.

I care

Running a business is hard - and life doesn’t wait for you in the background. As well as a capable pair of hands, I also lend you a non-judgmental pair of ears - I am genuinely listening and I will protect your time/mental load where necessary.

If you solely see your business support function as a glorified stationery procurer, or you’ve decided that you are managing fine all on your own (show off!) then this service isn’t for you.

But, if you:

  • Have reached a 'tipping point' where you know that your business can grow faster if you just stop micromanaging everything...
  • Have no idea where to start in terms of hiring someone with the right experience and interpersonal skills...
  • Would like to work with someone who cares about you as a person, first and foremost, and who will have your back in both the practical and the holistic matters...

…then this service is definitely for you!

In summary: I think in human-centred systems, as I’m a legal geek and an ex-clinical rehabilitation therapist who also comes from a process-driven background in the corporate world.

Would you like me to bring the essence of those experiences to help your productivity and, ultimately, your bottom line?
