Working with me allows you to fit more into your day with the comfort of knowing you have a self-managed and high performing team in place. You bring wisdom back  to your business and reignite your business mojo.

WHAT I DO

I believe that digital doesn’t need to be so hard.

Taking an agile approach to workflow, I am by your side,
helping you move your web, mobile, social media and app projects forward.

Your life is a success when you are prepared

I get it, I’ve seen it —there is little or no time to focus on your strengths for your business.
Let's get you back above sea level, no matter what.
When people have needed their lives back, they hired me. It’s time to let go.

“Human interactions are complicated but they matter more than any other aspect of the work”

Let me, do the interacting ... Imagine …

  1. Online processes set-up to aid a self-managed work flow
  2. Your online projects taken care of end-to-end
  3. Your remote team being nurtured and motivated
  4. Digital tasks getting done faster and with focus

Your team will deliver work, more reliably than before. And your clients will be happier with consistent work delivery, great quality and better predictability!

The bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you refuse to take the turn. - Anonymous.

ready to get your digital work flow in order?

This is where I shine.

I get things done.

I streamline.

I refine your work flow processes while you work on what you do best in your business.

Are you ready to free up your day from working in your business and spend more time working on your business?

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 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 be 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 from smaller ZAR 50k projects up to the bigger ZAR 1million+ projects. 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. And I, like you, have an entrepreneur in me. From running a coffee shop publication business to opening up an Etsy store. Writing business plans, drafting user personas, sourcing content producers, finding the best logo designers, I too have been on the other side of business, where you are.

Get once off support - website delivery Starting from ZAR 13000:

Let’s Chat

Let's chat further so I can get a good idea what you are needing and how I can help. So schedule in a time and day to chat with me (on skype or in person) and let’s grab that cup of coffee.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

Alice is world class. She can take any massive, complex project and tame it. Her eye to detail, her drive to bring closer collaboration, open up communication, weed out inefficiencies , and her ability to manage multiple moving parts at the same time is second to none.
Johan Steyn, CTO at Nurun (Publicis Machine Group)



Alice was bought into Enovation in order to help us solve significant amount of problems with our Workflow Process. If there is anyone we could ever recommend to evaluate your current processes, improve on them, and experience the impact of a proper, yet, intriguing and fun process, Alice would be the one. The added benefit is champagne, treats and lots and lots of sticky notes.
Juan Oliver, Marketing and Branding at Enovation

 

Alice swooped in and got everyone in the organisation on the same page - truly an achievement when we're the most creative and haphazard organisation. She re-built trust in the ICT department, assisted in enabling tools to help us track tasks and time, and pushed our impossible project to completion. It was the hardest job in the world, and she gracefully pushed through until we were back on track.
The Tim Doyle, Head of ICT at Afrikaburn

got some questions?

Do you only work “virtually”?

I live in Cape Town, South Africa. For companies in South Africa needing some face to face time , yes, we can make this happen. Companies outside of South Africa, let’s chat, or meet, especially if you’re in the Seychelles 🙂 My work location varies between co-working spaces, offices, my home office and creative coffee houses.

What companies do you work with?

Companies who have or need a dedicated team of digital deliverers.
I work with teams of 3+ people.
I love businesses with entrepreneurial spirit – so –

  • Tech start ups with an investment backing. (Industries: agriculture, beauty, health, jewelry, travel, transport, daily improvement tools, marketing tools, subscription apps, food, beverages, events).
  • Tech product businesses who require ongoing product development (Industries: agriculture, beauty, health, jewelry, travel, transport, daily improvement tools, marketing tools, subscription apps, food, beverages, events).
  • Agencies who require occasional once off projects to be outsourced.
  • Brands with in-house teams who need occasional projects to be outsourced.
What are your payment terms?

50% upfront and 50% on completion of agreed to package . For clients outside of South Africa, we can use PayPal.

Can you give me a discount?

If you commit to 40 hours a month for 3 months or more, then yes you get discounted hourly rate!

Will you work with our online tools (CRM etc.)?

I have a preferred set of online tools I like to use for once off project delivery (Active Collab, Trello, Slack, Skype, Smartsheet etc.). If you prefer me to use your online tools, we can chat about the best way to deliver the work in the time provided. Ultimately we want what is going to be best for the project outcome.

Will you take care of paying any partners or freelancers?

We will discuss the job requirements to understand what kind of freelancer skill you need and from there discover a way forward with regards payment to the freelancers.

What time zone do you work in?

South African time (UTC+2)  – other countries working to the same if not similar time zones – Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Equatorial Guinea, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and more .

When will you start and finish my custom package?

It depends on the job requirement, feedback loops and a bunch of other things, but we’ll work together to figure out an acceptable start and end date and how we can work in a fluid and simple way.

How do you communicate & how frequently?

Together we can figure out the best way but we have lots of available options from scheduled Skype calls to Slack to Google hangouts to Zoom. I hop on to digital workflow tools (Slack, Trello, Active Collab, Smartsheet) frequently to keep things moving.
