Alanna Smith outside Southsea Castle - Ask Alanna

Alanna brings a wonderful creative energy and enthusiasm to everything she does in addition to professionalism, expertise and fantastic organisational skills. I would be thrilled to work with her again.

Heather Mackenzie. Manager - Doctoral College Development Programme at University of Southampton

Alanna is confident, fun, with a creative edge that often brought new thoughts and ideas to our joint projects. She is determined, and able. We relied on her as a confident spokesperson in many of our group topics, as her knowledge and ability to speak confidently about marketing was really beneficial to us.

Suzi Edwards

Alanna brings all her skills and abilities to the team and is a great go-to person when you are a collaborator. She knows her way around people and the organisation, as well as being proactive and detail-orientated. Alanna is a great professional and I am thankful of her support!

Helena Herrera

Alanna proved herself to be an effective and efficient Administrator, being highly skilled in the organisation of meetings and events. Alanna was involved in the planning and delivery of some complex events, requiring strong communication skills and the ability to collaborate with both internal and external colleagues. Alanna delivered these successfully alongside the day to day duties associated with an administrative role – complex diary management, answering enquiries face to face, by telephone and email, providing secretarial support for formal committees, data management using both Microsoft based packages and bespoke data records systems. Alanna was a positive, creative member of the team, working well with all of her colleagues.

Nicola Noyce. Faculty Manager, Faculty of Science and Health at University of Portsmouth

She is well organised and truly helpful. I am so grateful I came across Alanna. She is an excellent addition to any organisation.

Mahmoud Elmarzouky. Lecturer of Finance and Accounting at the University of Westminster

Alanna is a great, talented woman, who advised me during the first stage of my master's degree. She gave me useful information to be successful on my first assignment. She was very helpful, friendly, and detail-minded.

Meriana Crespo. Digital Content Creator

I've worked with Alanna on a number of large training events. These workshops involve a lot of complicated logistics, but Alanna always makes sure that everything runs smoothly. She's always friendly and reliable and a pleasure to work with.

Catherine Pope, https://phdprogress.com/

Alanna has a wide range of interests which makes her really creative and innovative in her approach to any project. She's persuasive and able to push through her ideas and as a result we've collaborated on exciting and successful events such as the Science Outreach tent at Victorious Festival and the Festival of Postgraduates. She has such a can-do attitude which makes working with her a real pleasure.

Maricar Jagger. Marketing and public relations professional

It was a real pleasure to work with Alanna, her innovation and care over the processes ensured that everything ran really smoothly and she had systems in place to cover every eventuality! Working with Alanna made it a joy to work with a Higher Education Institution, which can often be an administrative nightmare! I highly recommend Alanna in all her capacities of Administration and Digital Marketing.
