The next step is the meet-and-greet. This is an informal meeting at your home so you (and your pets!) can get to know a potential sitter. You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking. The meet-and-greet is 100% cost and obligation-free and will be arranged for a time that suits you.

We have a new born black Dachshund called Gabi. It’s short for Gabriella and means God is my strength. She has a strong character, fears nothing and explores all her limits. She still likes biting but we are training her not to bite everything.

Please describe how you know this person:

I hired Vincent van Greunen to be part of the TEST-IT Africa International Conference in 2017. He has since been part of the conference and can be described as my right-hand man. He is responsible for the registration desk, setup and breakdown of the conference exhibition areas but goes above and beyond his normal duties. He is extremely reliable and thus over the years received more daunting responsibilities. Vincent is the only student that I constantly bring back every year to assist me.

We work with very confidential information, international guests, big companies and major role players in the industry and cannot afford any mistakes. I have full confidence in Vincent's abilities, so much so that in 2018 I entrusted him with the entire event while I left to fly to Cape Town. Vincent is very professional, intelligent, reliable and most of all hard-working. He will be a benefit to any team, company or individual that employs him.
