Who We Work With
Alexi became CEO of COSBOA at a critical time for the small business sector. The pandemic was in full force and government policy across all jurisdictions was being rapidly developed to protect the economy. Alexi was a tenacious and pragmatic advocate for small businesses while CEO, working with an incredibly diverse set of stakeholders (including those with historically opposing views) and leveraging all mediums to ensure small business interests were as well represented as possible. In large part due to Alexi’s leadership, Xero was very enthusiastic to increase its support of COSBOA.

It was our absolute pleasure to work with Alexi Boyd, who provided professional and in-depth podcast content for Zadro at a client Summit in 2019. From the very start Alexi understood our brief and the content that we needed. Her interviews were pre-planned, with speakers and topics researched well before the event took place. We worked closely on interviews and scheduling at the event so that our high profile speakers and their teams knew exactly where to be, when and what would be expected. Alexi is a fantastic interviewer, high engaging and personable, bringing energy to each and every podcast. The content we received was a fantastic addition for the post-event marketing, and was shared by our client and speakers across multiple social media networks extending the life of the event. We also now have some relevant content to share when we look to promote the next Summit. I would highly recommend Alexi as an MC, interviewer or for her podcast content.

There are countless people who proclaim that they care about small business, office administration and the finer points of bookkeeping – Alexi is one person who truly demonstrates that passion through her elite knowledge and continual work in the community. Every conversation with Alexi is an odyssey of education in how SME businesses should be best looking after their interests. She’s a great promoter of others through her client work, events and her radio program and deserves every bit of praise she receives from others. I would never hesitate to refer my clients to Alexi as a professional or a person.
