Meet the Team: Marcia Vorster
It’s been a while, but here’s another “Meet the Team” article to give you a peek behind the curtain; to see who is making the magic happen at AdminAssist, what makes them qualified, and most importantly, what makes them, them!
This week we chat to Marcia who currently resides in Polokwane on a farm with her soon-to-be hubby.
She’s lived in Africa and New Zealand and is on a mission to solve one administrative crisis after another across international borders. Marcia is a multitasker of note and has an uncanny ability to keep multiple balls in the air while humming a happy, trendy tune.
Who is Marcia?
I joined AdminAssist’s founder, Lourita, in 2013 and lead the way in which AdminAssist reaches out to our clients in terms of Sales and Marketing. I learn who they are, where they are and what they need and then help us meet them there.
What did you do before joining AdminAssist?
I studied Marketing at the IMM Graduate School while I dipped my toes into various industries such as golfing, fitness and IT journalism. I functioned in marketing and sales roles. Corporate was not what I was after and this is when Lourita and I crossed paths which lead to me buying into AdminAssist.
What would you say is your strength/s?
I strive for Harmony
When people around me hold differing views, I try to find the common ground. In my opinion, too much time is wasted by people trying to impose their views on others. We achieve much more if we look for consensus and support each other. I bring and bind people together.
I set yearly, monthly, weekly and daily goals that help me be an effective and efficient worker. When others start to wander, I draw them back and help move us forward. If something isn’t moving us towards our end goal, it’s not important and if it’s not important, then it’s not worth our time.
If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
The Fish Tacos I was addicted to while I was living in New Zealand. I can even quote the menu listing!
Pan-fried fish, salsa verde, slaw mix & aioli in a soft tortilla.
What would your pets say about you if we asked for a reference?
My two Pointer dogs certainly would give a good reference, maybe something in the lines of, “She feeds us treats and scraps off her plate (occasionally). Scratches our bellies and massages our ears, daily. Takes us for walks in the bushveld and gives us snuggles. She even lets us sit on the couch when she thinks no one is watching!”
