Lesley I have never been to a conference where the organisers have taken such good care of their guests. The professionalism and hospitality from you and all you team was exemplary. As this was my first trip to Cape Town I was expecting to be propping up the bar and then off to bed at midnight. Instead I discovered the hospitality (and cheap booze) of Cape Town and Long Street. Big kisses to all the lovely ladies of Cebisa and a warm greeting to all the guys.

On behalf of the PLATO Council I would like to formally congratulate you and your committee on the outstanding success of the AfricaGEO 2011 conference. While I have no doubt that you had more than your fair share of headaches and stresses in the build up to the conference the end result was, in my opinion, one of the best “CONSAS” conferences yet. Your team has really set the bar extremely high for any future committee. I would also like to commend the professional conference organisers, Cebisa Conferences, they were always available, very friendly and super efficient.
Paul Marshall President, South African Council for Professional and Technical Surveyors

Well done to you all on a very successful event, in such a beautiful part of the world. The alternative waste treatment elements were really interesting, and offered great networking opportunities, especially with so many international attendees. But I think the best technological advance of the conference goes to Lesley – printing double sided name tags is genius, and can’t figure out why we’ve never done this before!
