Gardener to Production Manager at DataDotSA
Eleven years ago Thamsanqa Kame worked as a gardener in George.
Today he is the young and dynamic Production Manager at #DataDotSA.
“I started this journey from nothing and came to George hopeless. When I was a gardener, I was living in a shack where there was no electricity and no water. I used to work seven days a week. There was no time for me to rest,” said Kame. “I was working very hard. I was exceptionally lucky to be surrounded by people who were willing to help me at any time and supported me on my journey through the ranks at DataDot. I also made some mistakes, but I learned that discipline, commitment, having a positive attitude and being willing to learn and take constructive criticism are very important. “Have more than 6000 patient/community member contacts on a monthly basis.
