MCO Events Team

The MCO Events Team is led by its five core values:

Compassion – To lead with kindness for ourselves and others around us.

Collaboration – To seek guidance and support from valued team members as only together can we create social change.

Fun – Laughter, light and humour are incorporated into everything we do. If we are not choosing to have fun, then we are choosing to suffer by default.

Growth – Continuous progression driven by our passions and hunger to learn. We are always students with a beginner’s mind and have a willingness to learn.

Respect – Treat people with honesty and integrity. To remain non-judgemental to other’s opinions, behaviours and attitudes.

“Our priority is always our team players and our clients. We strongly believe that a healthy relationship with these parties then the rest always follows”

– Melissa Yu (Director)

A note from the Director

My journey has been a crazy one and I feel like I have lived a thousand lives already. I think that is the best part of the journey though, not being afraid to seek opportunities when they arise and remaining true to my values and purpose.

I came from a clinical psychology background with a Bachelor of Arts; 2011 (Double Major in Drama and Theatre Studies & Psychology), a Postgraduate Diploma of Psychology; 2012, a Certificate IV in Telephone Counselling; 2013 and a Certificate IV in Mental Health; 2015. I worked in the mental health and family violence sector with Royal Children’s Hospital and McAuley Community Services for Women (2015-2016).

I have been a Guest Speaker for public events with beyondblue advocating for mental health and suicide awareness as well as worked nationally as the Project Manager for various leading exhibitions and conventions (2014-2017). Most recently, I have invested my time as a Roses in The Ocean Guest Speaker, the National Lifeline Campaign Fireside Chats and motivational speaking in start-ups and entrepreneurship in Melbourne (2017).

From personal life experiences, mental struggles and working in different industry fields such as events, psychology, hospitality and nightclubs, I have become well-equipped to handle the stresses behind a busy public event and to direct a team with shared vision and a strong passion. What I fell in love with was the opportunity to create events and unite a community together. I have worked with many people and the friends I have created from these networks are invaluable to my personal and professional growth.

At 27, I took the jump and listened to my little gut instincts that gave me the vision to start my own company and lead a team in large-scale events and conventions. The start-up of MCO Events places primary focus on workplace culture and staff support. I orchestrate events that bring a positive movement and message to the public that simultaneously generates creative ideas and ventures.

Dream big.
Lead with kindness.
And don’t settle.
I look forward to helping you make your next event seamless.

Love and Light,
