Renate Schreiber: “Dee is a consummate professional with an absolute integrity for fairness and honesty. Her professional dealings are based on a broad and deep involvement in the HR and labour and legal field and whilst firm, her conduct is always polished with a personal touch of friendliness. I would firmly vouch for Dee's ability, professionalism and ability to see any business through to its conclusion.”
Erich Kohlhöfer: “Dee was referred to me after I had been informed of a possible retrenchment by Telkom SA in 2002 I immediately found her to be highly intelligent with the ability to present various scenarios and likely outcomes. She strategizes on her feet, is extremely quick-thinking, and takes absolutely no nonsense from the opposition. I would have her represent me any-day. She is not your typical attorney/advocate in the sense that she will lead you to make the correct decision and not leave you wondering what strategy to follow. Her competence becomes apparent immediately the very first time that you deal with her. On a personal note, she is easy to like and does not present an aloof disposition so common among her peers."
Herman Botha: "Dee is compassionate about people, with a seven year working relationship, I've seen her grow youth, advice corporate, handle HR conflict professionally. Slowly growing Vellisa Africa in an independent, accredited training center supplying corporates with well-trained youth bridging the gap between University and valuable entry level employees. Also advancing the IT training of the employees in Corporates with valuable relevant information."
Nelly Mthembu: "Dee is a professional but easily approachable person. She can work with different kinds of people, like all races or ages. From these few months in her company as a student, I have seen that she could act like a mother when I need one and also as CEO if need CEO's advise."
Sanele Mpanza: "Dee is a professional and innovative individual who has a deep passion for what she does. She has great leadership qualities and has taught me a lot. Dee is wise, strategic and has a positive leadership technique."
