About Alicia Van Staden:

My name is Alicia Van Staden , and I am thrilled to share a little bit about myself with you. I am a passionate event manager who thrives on creating unforgettable experiences. With my friendly demeanour, intelligent approach, and unwavering dedication to excellence, I bring a unique blend of skills and expertise to every project I undertake.

I was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. Growing up, my family moved around quite a bit, but we eventually found our home in the beautiful Western Cape. 

Throughout my career, I have become a highly resourceful Banqueting Manager who loves Event Planning and executing seamless events. I have experience in coordinating both small and large-scale gatherings, always delivering exceptional results. 

What sets me apart is my attention to detail and the ability to think quickly on my feet. I embrace challenges head-on, embracing last-minute changes and handling unforeseen emergencies with ease. My adaptable nature and problem-solving skills have enabled me to build strong relationships with vendors and suppliers, ensuring smooth communication and swift solutions whenever needed.
