East Africa E-Tourism Conference, Nairobi | 29-30 September 2014

We were thrilled to be invited to present at the East Africa E-Tourism Conference this year. Jill spoke on "Your Business Online" and whilst in Kenya she caught up with clients, prospects and ran some exciting sessions on how to leverage ResRequest reports.



Chris Giles spent time in Tanzania, training in Arusha, Serengeti and Tarangire. Chris also had fun dodging hippos during his trip to Zambia where he spent time training and implementing new ResRequest sites. 

From the local front we were so excited to be able to host Liz, from Tanganyika, one of our power users. Liz spent two weeks with our team where we were able to spend quality time teaching her advanced ResRequest functionality. We love spending quality time with our users as it helps to entrench good habits and answer any specific needs. Please drop us a line if you would like any of your users to join in similar programmes.



This year we have a supported a number of charities with very different focuses - the causes are close to our hearts and they impact our community.

We gave to our local Highway SPCA, got involved with The Wellness Centre Trust - assisting the destitute and homeless and partnered with a creative outreach called the Mamma Gogo Initiative.



We have had more growth in our numbers this year. Nicolaas (Nicol) van der Merwe (left) and Anthony Shepherd (right) joined our development team as a developer and tester respectively. 


We're thrilled to have these new skills in our team. Anthony is obsessed with quality control and Nicol, well we think he's some crazy alien that's been sent here to introduce some amazing, inter-planetary stuff to ResRequest.
