WHO is Clever Owl

Clever Owl is owned and operated by Sandie Holmes, who has over 20 years in both government and private sector senior management.

Sandie has worked as Executive Officer for McLaren Vale Grape, Wine & Tourism Association, developing the regional branding, promotions and marketing strategy, as well as managing 520 business members. While strategic planning, governance and financial management were key achievements, being surrounded by some of the world's best food and wine was a significant plus. She has also managed a large Public Library Service, focusing on quality customer service, innovative service delivery and management of 60 staff. Whilst loving the work, the requirement for quietness proved a challenge.
