Thank you and your team for an excellent POPI session. To add weight to my words, I was initially sceptical of this investment in time and money. However, as a consequence of our engagement with Michalsons, Gmaven is in a far stronger position. We’re now empowered with valuable insights, a firm grasp of the principles and confidence in the domain. We appreciate your professionalism, your passion shines through, and Michalsons are to be commended on a great job.

I like the practical approach to the problem of compliance. In fact this is the first course that I have attended which actually shared a practical approach.

Our experience with Michalsons was top-notch. They are a very efficient, honest and straight forward organisation, that runs through the entire team, from receptionist to the associates. Sarah really helped us, over and beyond what I expected, and explained each step and gave honest and practical advice.
