    Having worked over 14 years (local and international), I see myself in a challenging environment that offers new opportunities for problem-solving. I see myself in a role where I can integrate my training in Human Resources in any environment and make a positive impact not only the way we source, recruit and employ, but also retain human capital. I'm always open to new challenges and thrive on fast accurate value-added service delivery. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to me. My aim and focus are to be viewed as an HR Business Partner and not just a delivery specialist. Having to work both sides of the sourcing and recruitment process I believe my skills in Corporate and Remote (local & international) environments are of utmost value in understanding the client and the importance of the function.

    My husband retired at 60 and I decided to join him at home so we could spend more time together. We are now married for 43 years and both of us had to work raising kids, who now are married with families of their own - so we are empty nesters! I love travelling, have done a bit and try to fit some in every year, be it local or international - though Covid-19 has put a damper on it somewhat. Planning the next international trip for early 2024. I am a retired accountant looking to supplement my income and to pass the time when not busy watching TV or crocheting. Reading is also a passion and I can spend quite some time on the internet and love YouTube videos. I have all the time in the world, dedication and willingness to complete any task allocated to me. Any project I do, will be done with great pride and accuracy.

    Over the past eight years I have been providing services, remotely through Upwork, to companies in Australia, UK, Singapore, USA, Africa, Saudi Arabia and Canada. These services included all areas of Services( catering for diverse industries), such as pre-sales, responses to RFxs, proposals, costing models, creating presentations, development of operational and service sales documentation, service catalogs and business plans, methodologies etc. I have always worked for IT Service providers, over 30 years, and most of those years, as part of my various positions I have been involved in responding to RFPs and producing and managing development of proposals. In addition, I initiated new business areas within the company, by submitting Business Plans and presentations to motivate and implement these new internal business opportunities such as starting up a Project Management Office and Service Desk. Even though the bulk has been in the IT industry I have assisted various industries whilst working on Upwork. As part of all my experiences in producing proposals, I have been exposed to a vast amount of RFx's, some of which were quality ones, some of which were poorly done. I therefore have a good understanding of how RFx's should be produced, to not only look professional, but to assist in obtaining quality responses. I headed up a Division specifically tasked with the development and management of proposals and responses to RFxs and creating appealing and compelling PowerPoint presentations. I also performed these tasks whilst performing other management and/or consultancy roles. My team and I managed the bid process from the time the RFP was received to the time it was delivered to the client, including sometimes presenting it to the client. The work included : - ‘Owning’ and Project Managing the whole bid management process - Establishing a team of key people required to provide the relevant input for the response - Ensuring that RFP timelines were understood and met - Understanding the RFP and its requirements and compiling relevant questions to be submitted to the client for clarification - Working with relevant internal divisions compiling the solution and associated costing models - Formulating the structure of the response - Gathering required input from the various divisions, and sometimes external service providers who formed part of the offering to the client - Contributing to the content of the proposal - Ensuring that the various inputs merged into a cohesive and compelling offering - Ensuring that the response addressed the RFP specific requirements and highlighted the benefits and ‘value adds’ of our offering - Presenting the solution in the most professional, concise and informative way - Designing and creating the PowerPoint presentations for the delivery to the client. This also included creating standard Cover letters, Executive Summaries, Company profiles, Service Brochures etc. My major key strengths include : • Good people management skills • Coaching & mentoring • Integrity, honesty & confidentiality • Innovative • Positive • Perfectionist • Belief in own ability to achieve • Strong communication and interpersonal skills at all levels • Development of strong client relationships • Ability to motivate others to higher levels of performance, productivity and professionalism • Broad understanding and experience in the IT arena • Understanding of ITIL principles • Understanding of Project Management principles • Ability to understand client’s requirements and compile the best solution • Development and presentation of proposals • Strong understanding of outsourcing e.g. methodology, costing, contracts • Bid management • Opportunity life cycle process

    I am a versatile freelancer offering services and experience as both an online Personal Development / Mindset coach, as well as editing, proof reading and material development. (Rates vary according to service offered.) If you are one of the clients on Upwork who believe that an excellent grasp of the English language can only be found in the UK, USA or Canada, I would like to, with respect, encourage you to do a little research on South Africa so that you do not lose out on the potential excellent service we are also able to offer. One of our beautiful 'rainbow nation' population groups is comprised of first-language English speakers of European decent. The benefit I have is understanding the minor differences between American, British, and South African English, which I apply accordingly to writing or editing tasks. Having been in education, training and coaching for over 20 years (including over seven years' experience in proofreading, designing and editing high quality training materials and non-fiction books) and in 2015 having started my own Life Coaching, Team Building and Training Solutions business, I am now loving the flexibility of working for clients from all over the world. Before going into the training industry, I was an English teacher for about 10 years, at High School level. I have been developing my talent and experience specifically in editing and proofreading over the past approximately 7 years. Please see my Upwork reviews regarding this. Providing a quality product to my clients is most important to me! My noticeable strengths are coaching and clear communication, editing, proofreading, writing, training skills, attention to detail, above-average communication skills, and knowledge and skill in the English language. I am a first language English speaker and studied advanced English up to 2nd-year level as part of my university degree (majoring in Psychology and Education). Understanding and practicing Emotional Intelligence is a specialty of mine, and I pride myself on ensuring my understanding of what clients are hoping to achieve with the task they have advertised. I am customer-centric when providing editing, copywriting and proofreading skills and have a knack for ensuring that a broad range of readers will understand articles, which otherwise might be confusing. I also have a good sense of humor (which can be quite useful in both coaching - and writing - where appropriate)! As a past Quality Manager of a respected training organization in our region, I was responsible for ensuring that our training materials (which ranged from topics such as Customer Service, Communication Skills and Project Management to Leadership, Strategic Planning, Problem Solving and Change Management, among others), adhered to the required specs. I ensured they were error-free and of the highest standards, and were sufficient and user- friendly enough to meet, and even surpass, the desired outcomes of the client. I am an accredited Facilitator, Assessor and Moderator of various training units and qualifications in South Africa, and was a registered member of COMENSA (Coaches and Mentors of South Africa) and worked for a few months as a journalist years ago, while awaiting a visa to travel. I presented a short radio slot once a week on an inspirational/motivational topic (for which I wrote the scripts) on a local radio FM station in South Africa for over three years. This stint included assisting with voice-overs in some of the station's on-air advertisements. Be open-minded and give South African freelancers a chance... many of us are known for our flexible mindsets, hard work, integrity, and dedication to completing tasks successfully and before deadlines. I look forward to corresponding with you and potentially forming a professional working relationship.

    As experienced consultant and high-level corporate executive, I am highly skilled in all aspects of business management. Perhaps my best attribute is that I care for people and thus love growing entrepreneurs and other people to be the maximum that they can be. I also love writing and do not see any task as beneath me. I like both formal and informal writing and I excel in academic writing. I am also proficient in proofreading.
