WHO IS AL?
“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Allison remarked. “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here.”
Despite thinking she might be in wonderland, Allison is our go-to person. With her wealth of HR experience, Al seamlessly manages all business functions from Quality and Finance to Admin and Marketing. The quintessential guardian, Al holds the ever-expanding office umbrella.
As Business Manager, Al is our chief navigator responsible for steering a steady course – and thank the Queen of Hearts for that, because her ability to direct-the-directors keeps SDA sailing smooth.
One of those rare creatures to lead with kindness, it’s no wonder she’s helped create a sense of family here. Outside of the SDA world though, you’ll find her hosting tea parties with her two girls, reading a good book or catching up with loved ones.
ON BEING APART OF THE SDA-TEAM
My role, at its core, is about managing systems and processes that support the practices strategic direction, purpose and vision and although these are crucial components in any business, for me one of the best parts about my role is the ability to focus on one of the most important assets that we as an organisation have, the human capital, the people we work with.
SDA brings together such a unique, progressive and creative bunch of people that it is hard not to get caught up in the energy of this place. I am lucky enough to genuinely enjoy my job and feel privileged to contribute to the wonderful culture that SDA have created.
