Gabi Handyside has been acting as my company bookkeeper/PA since July 2006. During this period of time Gabi has proven to be a very punctual, self-motivated person with a work ethic that is without question. I have always found Gabi to be honest and trustworthy and always prepared to go the extra yard when required. Gabi’s experience in both the public and private sectors places her in a very unique position whereby she is able to fully control all aspects of her chosen profession. The proof of Gabi’s worth to my company is most evident when we submit our EOY financials to our accounting firm for preparation which is always a seamless exercise for them due to Gabi’s attention to detail.
