About me

I’m the founder and director of Hashtag Nonprofit, bringing over two decades of experience in digital media consulting and managing online communications and technology within the development sector.

In my career, I have authored a series of e-books on digital media for nonprofits and conducted a survey on how South African nonprofits use social media. I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with nonprofit clients across Africa and the United States, allowing me to deeply understand the unique dynamics of South African nonprofit organisations.

My specialisation lies in creating simple, practical and user-friendly systems to manage your digital media. 

My Services

Website Development

Are you ready to empower your nonprofit organisation with an impactful online presence?

I understand that websites are indispensable communication tools for nonprofits. Rather than simply plugging content into a WordPress template, I specialise in guiding you through the process of uncovering the true purpose of your website, identifying your target audience, and strategising the most effective ways to achieve your communication goals through both your website and social media platforms.

One of my achievements is the creation and management of this Hashtag Nonprofit website. It’s a testament to my dedication to clean, minimalist designs, all while prioritising an exceptional user experience (UX). My focus is clear: your website should prioritise creating a positive and memorable user journey.

Let’s collaborate to craft a digital presence that not only represents your nonprofit’s mission but also engages and inspires your audience. Together, we’ll make sure your website becomes a powerful tool for driving your cause forward.

*Note: I offer website development on a very limited basis. Contact me for rates and availability.

Digital Comms Workshops and Training

After working in digital comms for nonprofits for over twenty year, the one thing I know for sure is taht one-size-fits-all solutions don’t work for nonprofits.! That’s why I produce customised communication workshops, designed to meet the unique needs of your organisation.

My bespoke workshops cover a wide range of essential topics:

  1. Communication Planning and Strategy: Craft a clear and effective communication strategy that aligns with your nonprofit’s mission and objectives. We’ll help you map out your goals and create a roadmap to success.

  2. Efficiency Tools for Social Media Management: Discover time-saving tools and techniques to streamline your social media efforts. From scheduling posts to analysing performance, I’ll show you how to maximise your impact while minimising your workload.

  3. Website and Social Media Auditing: Is your online presence making the right impression? I’ll conduct in-depth audits of your website and social media profiles to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.

  4. Harnessing AI for Communications: Stay ahead of the curve by integrating AI tools into your communications toolkit. Learn how artificial intelligence can enhance your messaging, content creation, and audience engagement, and save you considerable time and effort.

Our workshops are not one-size-fits-all. I work closely with your organisation to understand your specific challenges and goals. Whether you’re a small nonprofit looking to boost your online presence or a larger organisation seeking to optimise your communication strategies, my tailored workshops will provide you with actionable insights and practical skills.

Note: Workshops are offered in-person in Cape Town and virtually across the country. Contact me for rates and availability.
