Melissa Shervington
Sector Lead and Associate

Specialists Sectors

Melissa is our specialist facilitator for courses involving equalities, diversity and cross cultural communication. She has recently added to her Team AKD profile by becoming one of our main facilitators for social media learning experiences.

Melissa is also involved in a number of our Made to Measure projects because of her creativity and eye for detail.

She joined Team AKD in 2009 and is our Sector Lead for Housing.


Melissa has an extensive background in social housing.

She has developed a range of skills and courses relating to Community Engagement. This included developing innovative methods to engage with diverse groups of people, which she translated into packaged and tailored learning programmes.

She is the natural choice for leading on developing our portfolio of training solutions with our housing sector clients, working with both social housing and construction companies.

Melissa has continually extended her skill set and has proven to be a highly adaptable member of Team AKD. She now works across different sectors and has worked on major Made to Measure projects with clients including Aldwyck Housing, Balfour Beatty, Toyota Europe and C&A.

What Melissa Adds To Team AKD

Melissa’s experience in training development and facilitation has proved invaluable in helping AKD to collate courses that focus on positive change and developing people. These have proved equally beneficial for clients in both the Private and Public sector.

Her consultancy skills are a great asset when we put new courses together, especially for our Made to Measure courses. She has also been a regular contributor to the development of our Interactive Training Tools (notable Equally Yours, which owes much to her background).
