Alice is a bright shining creative light, an absolute pleasure to work with, enthusiastic and always inquisitive. Her charming, caring, energetic nature cultivated beautiful and inventive relationships with our guests. From the moment I received her ‘cv’ (this excellent site), I knew I’d be very lucky to have her as part of our team and have been delighted to follow her adventures in both life and career since leaving us. An all-round super being.
— Lisa Geller, Business Leader at RED Hotels

It’s difficult to find brilliantly talented individuals that not only not deliver excellence but go beyond what’s expected. Even more so, finding individuals that can equally inspire teammates, partners, customers, and VIPs is near impossible. Alice brings all of this, and so much more, to the work she does and the people she interacts with. Call it hard work, open-mindedness, humble confidence, or even a bit of magic - Alice is a joy to work with and consistently surprises those she connects within the most wonderful of ways. If you care about getting the job done right, connecting with your clients or customers authentically, and leaving a lasting impression, I could not recommend Alice more highly for any role.

  Meet David Hieatt. David champions sustainable retail, brand and creativity. Look up the definition for Entrepreneur and David is there. He worked at Saatchi and Saatchi for 8 years. Later on he and his wife Clare founded howies in their living room which went on to become one of the top 50 brands in the UK year after year before selling, regrettably to Timberland. He then co-founded The Do Lectures which was voted the top ten ideas festivals in the world by the Guardian and nominated best website in the world (the talks have been watched by millions online). Today David & Clare are the proud founders of The Hiut Denim Company based in Cardigan which has got his town making jeans again.
Alice and Ross have been there since the beginning. They have helped organise The Do Lectures, find the speakers, persuade them to come and manage the logistics of getting attendees and speakers to one place from over 100 countries. They have learnt their incredible skills just by doing event after event. They are role models for all young people. Despite their young years, they are world-class event organisers and their skills are hard to find and even harder to replace. They are exceptional at what they do. But, even better than that, they are wonderful people too. I can’t speak more highly of them. They are simply, special people.

Alice is one of those people, a rare breed, you can throw her in at the deep end and she will always come up trumps, with a massive grin on her face. It doesn’t matter what you throw at her and how messy the brief through a combination of skill, attention to detail, tenacity and boundless enthusiasm she will get it done. I’d work with her again in a heartbeat and if you get the chance, you should too.

  Meet Ru Hill. Back in the noughties Ru knew that as far as Surf Schools went there were those who catered for beginners and experts. What about everyone else? Ru travelled for 10 years gathering data and secretly searching for the perfect location for his one of a kind luxury Surf Resort. He decided on Nosara, Costa Rica for its consistent year round swell and in 2010 he opened Surf Simply. “Technical Surfing, Taught Simply”.     Today they host week long luxury surf camps which include not only some of the best surf coaching anywhere in the world but also your airport pick up, wining & dining at the resort and at the local restaurants, yoga and massage. The clientele include executives, directors, entrepreneurs and athletes. Ru trains his already highly experienced and qualified coaches to    take a functional, almost scientific approach to surf instruction, breaking it down into logical, obtainable steps. Their TripAdvsisor page is legit! They are total surf geeks and some of the most awesome people I’ve ever worked with. 
Alice is stoic but her personality is infectiously positive. She performed her tasks with seemingly limitless enthusiasm and feasibility.
