Many years in corporate business have allowed me to explore many aspects of business and enabled me to travel across Africa while supporting multi-million dollar capital projects.
While my formal education is focused on marketing, and I have strategic planning and a research background, I have experience in supply chain planning, technical project planning and marketing project management in new product development. I do also have an NQF Assessor qualification which enables me to have a variety of freelancing work streams.
I seem to have come full circle - I have always had a penchant for good writing and a passion for words; so much so that after leaving the business world I enrolled and successfully completed a university copy-editing qualification, and I am revelling in the world of words.
I've co-founded a company called Word Matters; including all forms of editing, proofreading and perfecting with focus on style, content, grammar, language, spelling, punctuation, writing, layout, formatting … every detail matters!
