DIGITAL PROJECT COACH

I coach digital teams to master agile ways of working so they can meet project deadlines, be more efficient, and experience joy in the work they do!

WHAT I DO

I offer programs, 1-hour masterclasses & coaching sessions to digital teams that help them drive efficiencies in the workplace.

Hi, I am Alice

I live in a beach town called Hout Bay in Cape Town, South Africa. When I'm not behind the laptop, consulting or running a workshop you'll find me jogging up Chapman's Peak, a beautiful road that hugs our stunning coastline. Fueled by my Latin Hits playlist and stunning views, this workout ritual keeps me focused and work-ready!

Over the past twenty years, I’ve been privileged to work across teams: project managers, strategists, user experience experts, developers, designers, copywriters, client service, business development, finance, social media and analytics.

I’ve been part of the production of hundreds of digital projects ranging from ZAR 50k projects to ZAR 1million+. I bring a mixed bag of experience from Digital Operations to Digital Project Management to running scrum with project teams.

“Interactions should be easy, confident and warm.”

I’ve connected with incredible creatives, business owners and entrepreneurs. I have over 20 years working with digital teams. I never stop learning and I love enrolling in online courses, attending online webinars and participating in various scrum meet-ups.

Why I started this business ...

  • Tech Start Ups sometimes need a unicorn. Performing the role of a Scrum Master, Project Manager and sometimes even a Product Owner requires support especially when creating a work flow that will be able to scale.

  • There is no 1 x digital template to fit all digital projects, there is a unique context that accompanies a project or product, figuring out the WHY questions is not always easy to do alone.

  • Scrum Masters often get caught up in the methodology. Project Managers often feel they are glorified administrators. Some of these practices and/or tools used can become stale pretty fast. I will help you to step away from the robotic rituals and change things up to be more "agile" that will end up working better for your customers.

  • Some businesses find it hard to break out of the timesheet equals delivery mindset where the focus should be more on the project or product outcome and creating customer value metrics, let me help you do this.

  • The success of the product is directly linked to the successful uptake by your customers and this is a collective effort from all teams. Lets figure this out together so you can drive the right outcomes.

  • When the team is coming together, frequent closure is important. Teams like succeeding together. Let me help you make the delivery visible.

  • Working with digital gurus when you don't practice their craft yourself is tough. So how can you drive the project/product forward and communicate effectively with one another and work each other's strengths. It takes practice and continuous learning, this is where I can help you with tried and tested exercises to try in your own team sessions.

  • There are loads of courses and certifications out there to upskill oneself in digital project methodologies & agile methodologies but but very few focus on the skills needed to drive engagement from the team, this is where I come in and help Project Owners see the wood for the trees.
