Rooibos Ltd hosts workshop to train marshals

On 19 October 2015, Rooibos Ltd hosted a free half-day workshop to train people to work as, among others, marshals at big events. Gerda de Wet, Communication Manager at Rooibos Ltd, explained: "Through this workshop we wanted to foster an understanding of the importance of effective controllers at special events such as the annual Freshpak Fitness Festival. Tourism is important to Clanwilliam and events play a big role in attracting visitors. We would like to ensure that members of our own community benefit from work opportunities created by such events."

The September workshop for community members provided entry-level training and focused on marshalling, crowd control and direction in the town as well as access control. The workshop was presented free of charge and participants received certificates after completing the course. This training will help to create jobs for participants at big events. It will also enhance the experience of visitors at such events.
