    I'm a planner, communicator and language practitioner. After my Bachelor of Arts degree (English and Afrikaans/Dutch), I completed a one-year industry Certificate in Public Relations Practice from the Public Relations Institute of South Africa. I earned this certificate with distinction and was winner of the Murray and Roberts award for the Top Student in my Province. When I plan an event, big or small, I consider the guests, the logistics, and what my client wants to achieve, namely the purpose or message of the event, and how to execute it within budget and on time. My objective with communication services is to establish connection and understanding between parties, regardless of the medium that my client chooses. I can help you with a sensitive email, or to structure the text in your new or existing website, with meaningful flow for better navigation, or develop a script for your training or corporate video. When you wish to dust of your business and showcase a new look to your customers, I gladly assist with rebranding. Along with my trusted graphic artist, your brand assets will be developed for small and large digital and printable applications, and we always provide a brand book as a reference guide. We also provide you with all the files, so that you retain ownership of your digital assets. I have many years of editing and proofing experience, and offer my services for business content, websites, learning material, poetry and short stories for adults and children. I have equally many years of translation experience: English to Afrikaans | Afrikaans to English | Afrikaans, Dutch and Flemish to English | Dutch or Flemish to Afrikaans. Media is in my blood. I also have a highly skilled media team always ready to assist with audio, video, podcasting or live productions. We also offer streaming services using YOLO technology. I have experience with voice-over work and podcasting and would like to do more documentary content, news and audio books (business and novels/short stories). My audio engineer uses state of the art software and equipment and consistently produces high quality final products. I work confidently in Windows, MS Office Suite, Outlook, Teams, and can type 85 words per minute accurately. I will consider small transcription tasks if the audio is good quality. I use WordPress with Breakdance and AIOSEO plugins. These are the most in-demand tools for today's website-requirements. I prefer building websites for small business and interesting organizations. I believe in collaborating and have a brilliant team that can be enlisted to add additional value and skills within any project that requires planning, analysis, Excel support/setup, book layout and design, product and stinger animation, 3D renders, cartoon-style communications for content such as learning material or health and safety or other corporate communications, and audio and video post-production. In all projects, I aim to be objective and can see both the big picture and fine detail. I place myself in the shoes of the customer/user/reader/guest to visualize and anticipate their experience of whatever product/content/event is planned or developed.
