We would like to hold the attention of all our blog readers and direct it towards the SEDA accredited training programmes that are being offered to the unemployed, especially to those in George right now.

SEDA is offering generic management and entrepreneurship training for free to all who apply to enroll in their certified programmes granted that you apply with your ID, CV and matric certificate in order to process your application. We would like to urge those unemployed individuals to apply for the courses and training as it can only benefit your future.

They have recently started advertising this opportunity and the sooner one can apply the better the odds are of making use of this fleeting golden ticket of free education. We wish all of those in our local community the best of luck in their endeavours of self improvement and education.

We will be taking part and promoting these movements for as long as we can in hopes of changing lives and making a local impact.

In our very own SND blog we have decided to make it our mission to get you, the reader, to see what it’s like working on the inside with the crew of SND. It is not common practice for business to allow clients to peek into the private side of the company, but we are not a common practice, we are SND Productions. With that said, in this post we have put the spotlight on the man behind the microphone, thanking everyone for their collaborative efforts, our team leader & master of ceremonies, Ruan Venter.

We asked Ruan what his favourite part of his job was as team leader and overseer of SND Productions to which he said that his all-time favourite is getting to work with the people he truly loves as well as serving a fun purpose with his passion for music. The part Ruan finds most difficult is putting on the “leader hat” and having to be the one to enforce the correct sort of work ethic and attitude into the crew that will make them most efficient as well as figuring out which strategy will work best.

A hidden challenge that one might not know about unless working in a similar setting is that of keeping a consistently excellent service going in the Garden Route as it isn’t always the most forgiving clientele in the country. Ruan says that to remain on-top of quality, one must wake up with the mindset of achieving big everyday, even on the days you feel like laying in bed.

Secret perks of the job are as you could have guessed, meeting the amazing artists SND Productions brings in on a monthly basis, but the biggest being the reward of hearing that a customer is more than satisfied with the service you provided them with.

Ruan reports that if he never got into this particular line of work he has no idea what he would’ve done instead, but suspects that it would involve being a professional athlete. He says that it isn’t a dream that is out of the window and that he might still pursue it one day.

Ruan, we owe you a great debt and carry a quality of respect that only a leader could muster in men. In conclusion, you realised that sometimes you have to run before you can walk and we love that if we were to reduce you to your core, that would be your essence.

This might just be our final post on life on the greener side of the fence. We dedicate this mini series to what it’s like when working for SND Productions. We’ve explored our many facets of the business from events management through to shop keeping, but in this particular post we wanted to take a look at what it’s like to be a rental manager in SND Productions.

We asked dear Sven what his favorite part of the job was to which he said that, even though he isn’t always directly involved, he loves the opportunity to see all the live shows & deal with the clients that rent equipment from SND Productions. Sven, if you’re reading this, if ever there was a right answer, it would look like this one!

The hardest part of the job for Sven is arguing with his fellow employees, he says he dislikes confrontation between people with whom you work in such a tight approximation with on a daily basis. He might look the part of a hardened veteran, but he’s an old softy.

The most challenging part of the job that you might not know of when working as a rental manager is working with all the different types of clients and maintaining those relationships so that business can always be conducted smoothly. It is a lot more work that you would think and it is like doing laundry or washing dishes in the sense that it never ends, it’s always a maintenance of in and out.

The secret perks of the job according to Sven is that of being paid to watch amazing shows and of course, meeting the talent that makes the show come to life. It’s not always a guarantee, but when it happens, it’s magical.

Sven says that in another life he would have been an accountant and that his best memory made working for SND was when they had to do engineering work for 4 weeks straight. On a scale between 1-5 he is a strong 4 on recommending Windows 10 to a friend and on a scale of 1-1000 we love Sven 3000.
