Johan has the ability to make something special out of nothing as far as displays are concerned. He is our own ALL IN ONE. Johan started with us on 9 September 2010 with no knowledge of plants whatsoever, thinking that he would only last three days. Soon after he proved us wrong with his extraordinary capability to learn fast. He has a cheerful attitude that benefits his teammates and is excellent at customer service.
He was hired as a general worker and in a short time he mastered the knowledge of plants but found his love for agricultural remedies so he pursued his love and took an AVCASA course that was passed with great expectation.
He is now well known as the “Plant doctor” here at Geelhout Gardens. As years passed we found that he is a great IT Technician and we use his IT skills as often as we can an no longer call in external IT technicians. He has since started to study Digital marketing in his own time and now also does our marketing for all categories.
Furthermore he then started to study landscaping and yet again passed with extraordinary merits.
Despite that Johan is considered legally blind, he has promised that he will continue to grow and broaden his knowledge. Johan is going from strength to strength and we are proud to be part of his journey. Johan is one of our most dependable team members – always on time (or even early) to report for duty.
A deserving recipient of the Young Retailer Award.
