How and since when do you know Charline ?

Since 2008, when we both arrived together in South Africa. But technically, we should have known each other from 2002 as we went to the same University with one year difference.

Can you describe Charline’s job for us ?

Charline is the Sales & Quality Manager. She is in charge of the tenders. No programs and budgets from the team will be sent without being checked by her “piercing eye”.

Can you give us one or two character traits that makes you think she’s good in what she does ?

Charline is very well organized and perfectionist. Furthermore she loves people and you can really feel it!

Tell us one anecdote or memory from the field about Charline that still makes you smile today…

Charline is always ready to get up 2 hours before the group to make sure that she had breakfast and she carries dry fruits & nuts with her at all time.

How and since when do you know Cécile ?

Since 2008, when we both arrived together in South Africa.

Can you describe Cécile’s job for us ?

Cécile is the Operations Manager. She is managing the op team and goes on the field as well. She is in control of the files as soon as they are confirmed and make sure everything is going smoothly and perfectly on site!!

Can you give us one or two character traits that makes you think she’s good in what she does ?

Cécile is perfectionist. Precise, attentive, meticulous to all the details – nothing is left behind!

Tell us one anecdote or memory from the field about Cécile that still makes you smile today…

For Cécile, an operation will/can only be finished and accomplished once she lights the “victory’s cigarette” after everyone left and before going back home.

And finally, one memory you both share…

The only time, we had the chance to work together on the field was when we were setting up an interactive drumming & gumboots session in the outside amphitheater of Company Gardens in Cape Town. The uncertain weather was playing with our nerves and we had to move inside, and back outside for eventually ending inside the Museum.

Moving 160 drums and 320 gumboots back and forth in less than 20 minutes is still a world record!!!
