    I am writing to let you know how much I appreciate the outstanding customer service that you and the staff  of WCBDC provided me since I joined the centre .  Everybody at the centre are very attentive and helpful. From the moment you walk in at Reception to the moment you see one of the consultants.  The employees I interacted with, especially You and Elsa Norman , were very knowledgeable about your service line and seemed genuinely interested in helping me find ways and goals that met my needs rather than just being focused on making a quick conversation. Every time I visited the centre my needs were met. Because of their efforts, knowledge, information,  I was able to find exactly what I needed and I am very satisfied with my business at this stage. I will continue to visit the business centre in the future, as well as recommend it to others. Please let You and Elsa, as well as the other employees in the WCBDC centre, know that you’re/their  efforts did not go unnoticed. You have put together a great team that makes customers feel respected and valued.

    I'd like to compliment one of your employees, Chrisando, for the excellent service he provided me last week. He  helped me by referring me to Rabbit training for my OHS File. I have always been pleased with the service I receive at your branch. However, Danie and Connie’s professionalism and ability to get to the bottom of the situation quickly exceeded my expectations. Within a few days, they were able to compile and complete my [Health and Safety] File. Such a commitment to great customer service is to be commended. You can be sure that I will continue to do business with them for years to come.
