My personal recommendation letter for Caz Livingstone (AccountsPro Solutions)
I would highly recommend Caz for any role that involves managing people and creating operating systems within a business, as well as dealing with customers in a professional manner, to even doing accounts, developing pricing, importing and exporting, marketing or even delivering training and support to others. Caz demonstrates many skills that are just so valuable for business.
Caz has been my main contact in South Africa since June 2009, and without her expertise, skills and knowledge we would have not been able to establish further business and continue with our customer base for support locally.
Since 2009 Caz has assisted me with Brand awareness, dissolving specific representative issues with past contracts and supporting me with cancelling contracts and recovery of the stock.
Caz was able to be there for customers who had been unhappy and threatening legal action and was able to calm down the situation in a very professional manner and offer real solutions for our business and our clients at that time.
Further on from that Caz handled all our Client servicing for ordering of products, developed all our marketing material (she has a real creative flare in this area) and was able to develop new pricing, taking into consideration the importing and distribution of products.
Caz then created a website shop and handled all the local admin, support, invoicing, and follow up for all our clients locally.
In 2013 Caz assisted me with developing some great interactive Powerpoints workbooks for our Registered training organisation. This qualification, Graduate Diploma in Salon Management was used by government organisations in Australia.
We were very fortunate to have Caz on our team as we were able to deliver incredible resources for students and for trainers and assessors in record time. Her skill in creating documents using Powerpoint, developing Excel spreadsheets and creating brochures seems to just flow for Caz.
I believe that Caz has incredible business sense and her knowledge in all areas from computers to programming, accounts, and invoicing, developing systems and ensuring operations run smoothly, as well as the professional way she can communicate and deliver information would be a huge asset for any organisation contracting or employing Caz to develop, manage or make easier, operations, in their business.
Caz has always been a quick learner and when I had to teach her a new skill, she didn’t have already, she was able to grasp it quickly and work on her own performing any duties in no time. What she brought to the new skill, was even more skills and systems, which allowed us to become more streamlined.
Caz has always been a very valued member of our team, as a contractor to us, and I would hope she could take her skills and knowledge and assist other businesses the way she has assisted us over the last 10 years. I wish her all the best in her future ventures and know she will be a valued asset to any company.
T. Hammond, Director.
For years we struggled to keep our books in order & submit our tax returns on time.
As a small business, we knew it shouldn't be so hard to get organised, yet we struggled to find a pro-active bookkeeper to guide us in the right direction.
That is, until we found AccountsPro Solutions. Now, our accounts are up to date and well-managed.
We are simply blown away by how professional and organised everything is, and we're finally getting the financial andaccounting advice we've always needed.
To top it off, AccountsPro Solutions' rates are affordable for any small business.
On a personal note, we are so grateful to Caz, who always goes above and beyond in her work and whose attention to detail is astounding.
For the first time in four years, I feel at ease when thinking about our books and admin. I know we're doing things properly at last!
I cannot over-emphasize how highly I recommend AccountsPro Solutions.
In September 2000, Caz Livingstone graciously responded to the request from the Board of Directors of the People Helping People Foundation - PHPF Inc, that she join us as International Director and a working board member to help with our fundraising efforts.
Within three short months of her arrival, Caz's ingenious project management saw an unparalleled sales volume in excess of &43,000 US- a feat that was accomplished during a selling period of just five weeks!
Within the next six months, Caz's sales team achieved sales in excess of $25,000 US per month over several months. These efforts had not been surpassed by May 2004.
Since then, Caz has been unstinting in her contributions to the Foundation. She gives generously of her time, her expertise, her marketing and management skills. She continues to be a valued International Director of PHPF, Inc.
In addition to marketing, she also served on the Executive Committee of the Board, and acted in the capacity of Corporate Secretary, with the responsibility to oversee all private Corporate Documents and Records.
Caz is a valued advisor to the Foundation President, always willing to consult and lend her objective commentary on critical and sensitive issues.
