The majority of our feedback was collected on written sheets, as yet to be digitised, but here follows some excerpts from emails we received, often spontaneously, or via the HR manager. We intend to keep improving our services and products, but this shows that the quality of our work and service has remained consistent, even as we begin to upscale. We will not rest on our laurels, but continue to strive in our quest to help transform South Africa in a postive way.
I’ve been attending the Xhosa classes (taught by the Ubuntu Bridge team) here in Cape Town the last two months, and I have thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed them. It’s been wonderful to learn something new, and in the process learn a bit more about Xhosa culture. I didn’t expect to have as much fun as I did, and it was also fantastic to meet Media24 staff from other businesses/business units. I really laud this Media24 initiative!
“Thanks for a great course – it has honestly changed the way I interact with people and has taught me so much more than the basics of another language. I hope to pursue it further.”
Andrea Marchesi, Media 24
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Babalwa for the course. It was actually fantastic and it surpassed all my expectations. Having gone to school for 12 years and varsity for 5, I can safely say it was the most enjoyable course I have ever done.
Molweni Craig, Nosi, Harrison & Luphumlo,
Thank you so much for the wonderful learning experience you gave us at Media24.
You guys were the best!
Elizca Henn, Media 24
Thanks, We had a tough time restructuring our business and our stress levels are high. I must say the one thing that helped reduce my stress levels were our lunch time classes with Luphumlo and Nosi. They are such a breath of fresh air and Luphumlo is sometimes a laugh a minute.
It is most definitely a worthwhile course to do and I think the uBuntu Bridge team that taught us is wonderful and very professional. I would strongly recommend that Old Mutual continue using them and most definitely continue presenting this course as part of the Business School HR initiative. I wish I have had this opportunity 20 years ago.
Finally, thank you for giving me this opportunity to enrich myself on a cultural and personal way. We have a wonderful country, and at Old Mutual we most definitely are living the value of diversity. I loved the past 8 weeks – THANK YOU!!!!
Regards, Mo van Niekerk, Old Mutual
Craig, thank you very much for creating the UBuntu Bridge initiative. The course is an enriching experience on many levels. And our teacher is a great ambassador for the culture and sensitivity of the people and the elegance of the language.
