VIC WIF Networking Breakfast 16/5/2019


About our Guest Speaker:

Melanie Gleeson is the Founder of Endota Spa.

My vision and passion was, and still is, to help women be their best, so they can live their best life.
The ethos of the brand was fueled by my personal belief in the power of positive sharing and a desire for more meaningful connections. 15 years ago a friend and I saw a gap in the market and opened our first day spa on the Mornington Peninsula at a time when few people even knew what a spa was and even fewer recognised the importance of investing in wellbeing. endota spa is a place where women feel cared for on a physical, spiritual and emotional level. There are now over 100 day spas across Australia.
The values I built the business on were Balance, Connect, Intent and Truth. I believe in cause and effect and that there must be balance with nature and humanity within our own relationships.  We need to connect with the community, with each other and importantly with our own needs. We must act with mindfulness in what we do.  Our intention is to be transparent and honest, whilst respecting ourselves and the environment.  I also believe in truthfulness . We want women to be their best and find what their truth is. I believe everyone has a spark inside them that is waiting to be ignited.
Our role is to deliver exceptional customer service in an environment where women don't feel judged. Our spas are a haven for women to replenish their souls, a place where women can leave their concerns, their stresses and their 'stuff' at the door and simply have some me time. It's an opportunity to step out of the real world for a time, into a world where the only person who matters is you.
This is why I do what I do. And why, all those years ago, I opened the first endota spa.
