Through her 20+ years in the workplace, she has honed her natural strengths and management skills. She has a great ability to think strategically and communicate simply. She is insightful and a keen listener. At once direct and yet gentle. Being a both a leader with a servant heart, it was a natural progression for Anne-Lise to move from management and into management support, in 2021. 

Every business owner and manager can benefit from having someone in their corner. Someone who gets them. Someone who can be a sounding board, or be the person who helps gets things done. This is why BDI Management was born.

BDI Management is the team that journeys with you in your business. We bring essential skills into your business. Often, these are skills that we have in-house. At other times, we source skills to support you. We identify the skills needed. We manage the resources. We help you get the job done.

When you work with BDI Management, you only need to deal with one person and you get access to a myriad of extra support. All for far less than it would have cost you to hire full time staff.

So BDI Management was born.

Client Reviews

We recently had a workshop function that was hosted and led by Anne-Lise from BDI Management. The workshop flowed seamlessly and the interaction between all parties was excellent. The setup and manner in which BDI led the workshop made all parties relaxed which allowed interactions between the managers, senior and junior staff to take place. This allowed for open and frank discussion being had, which otherwise wouldn’t have happened. In the end all parties could express their views and felt heard and new procedures were set forward that will be implemented to improve the workflow within the company. Thanks to BDI for their involvement.

Andre van Niekerk

Director, NPM Geomatics

Thank you, Anne-Lise, you did everything effortlessly despite challenges and limited resources.

Theresa Moila                                                    Eastern Cape Education Development Trust

Anne-Lise has in recent months started assisting us with streamlining and updating many aspects in respect of our Human Resource Department because we simply could not manage it on our own due to the volume of work we deal with on a daily basis. It has been invaluable and extremely helpful because she got to know all our employees, brought about an independent fresh perspective, and has played a key role in assisting with staff reviews, staff recruitment and ensuring that well managed systems are in place. I am extremely grateful for this ongoing support.
