I am an ordinary woman living in the Winelands of McGregor in South Africa. My husband and I live in an alternative technology house with our two cats, Tiger Pearl (aka Princess Pearli) and Gandalf the Grey.
What I do now
I am a gig worker. Courtesy of Covid-19, I am reinventing myself and offering online English research and writing services including writing tutoring and developmental editing for anyone wishing to build his or her writing skills.
I take on a freelance gigs:
- For businesses
writing copy for anything from leaflets to business plans, streamlining systems and procedures for succession and compliance purposes
building simple Google and WordPress sites, designing uncomplicated leaflets leaflets.
- For individuals
I will help to troubleshoot: when you can’t get an answer, give me the story, and write the letter or email you need to get action
Destination McGregor, is a micro tourism business that offers short term holiday accommodation managment in the village. Thanks to Covid-19, it’s currently on care and maintenance as we wait this thing out.
What I did then
I ran an education and training management consultancy for more than 20 years. The advent of the Internet and broadband meant that I was able to work with clients in both South Africa and abroad, successfully maximising time and costs for all concerned. Consultancy services specialised in project conceptualisation, policy analysis, systems development, quality assurance and compliance as well as the development of learning materials. Over the time, clients included tertiary education institutions (local and international), sector education and training authorities (skills boards), private companies, government departments and donors, as well as grassroots community organisations.
