Baby Benjamin Soper, son of developer Nick, arrived in September - the 4th ResRequest baby to be born this year. 

Team Movements

Thokozani Madikane (TK) explored the Sabi Sands and Kruger Park areas recently, as he visited client sites to familiarise himself further on their property management interfaces - Point of Sale and Telephone. 

Whilst on-site he had the opportunity to attend to any technical support queries and spot the BIG 5 for the first time.


Chris Giles, our trainer never has much time to unpack his bags. A short while ago he was carrying out a training circuit in Zanzibar, Kenya Coast and the Masai Mara. There is always a need and request for refresher and new staff training. Chris headed off to Hoedspruit and Nelspruit at the end of the October, this being for the South African leg of our annual training circuit roadshow. This addition he has visited Zimbabwe and Zambia this quarter.

Mike Coppinger, exhibited at Xplore 2013 in Kenya and after picking up some sales leads at the show he visited clients in the area and managed a trip to Uganda and Tanzania to see prospects and work with a client on our financial interface.


Belinda Blakeman has also been gadding about with opportunities to train in Botswana and Cape Town for new clients and was tempted her change her title and perhaps move locations.


Love is in the Air  

 Lynn (Tash) is off to get married this month - always something exciting happing in the lives of the team.


For just over a year we have been initiating opportunities to give back - We have come alongside some local organisations as well as those further a field and associated with our client base. We not only wish to give monetary gifts to support the charities' communities work, but also with our other resources of time and expertise.

We were able to for the first time to Pack for a Purpose and send a parcel with TK to Justicia Nursery School connected with Inyati Game Lodge.


End of Year Team Building

Thokozani (TK) has been with ResRequest for 5 years and at our recent end of year staff team building function he received a token for his service.


Snips from our end of year gathering where we were pushed out of our comfort zones and tackled many challenges, we certainly don't do everyday.
