Alex was my manager at Plus X Brighton for over 16 months. I started as a Content Producer Apprentice and now run my own business. Alex was there for every step of the way. She taught me everything I know about working in a corporate environment, from writing emails to negotiating a day rate!

I've had the pleasure of observing Alex’s remarkable career in the coworking and flex industry, where her diligence, compassion, and determination have consistently set her apart.

Alex is not just knowledgeable about workspace cultures; she has a genuine passion for helping people discover their true professional calling and cultivating communities. Her grace, kindness, and willingness to go above and beyond make her an invaluable asset in any professional setting.

I had the privilege of entrusting Alex to host GCUC UK for the flex and coworking industry that I produced, a decision I did not regret. Her charismatic and charming demeanour, combined with a dedication to putting her all into every task, made the event a resounding success.

I cannot wait for future opportunities to work with her.

Alex is commercially minded, strategic and tenacious in achieving results; but what sets Alex apart is her commitment to brand experience, community, and genuine care and love for her team and those around her. Alex is by far one of the most organised and diligent professionals I have ever worked with and I have no doubt she will go very far in her career. I can't think of a business that wouldn't find her to be an asset.
