"5 May 2014

It is with pleasure that I recommend Cecil for any position for which he will be applying within the creative and marketing fields. During my period of employment within Eveready as Product Specialist: Lighting, from July 2012 to May 2013, I had the pleasure of working closely with Cecil in setting up stands for Eveready’s participation in the Proudly South African awareness shopping centre tradeshows.

He then worked with me in developing wall banners and setting up Eveready Battery/Lighting and House Of York stands for the Proudly South African summit held at the Emperors Palace, which was attended by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and Minister Rob Davies. During this time, Cecil worked in a well-structured manner and used his innate creativity to throw himself into every task required of him with passion and dedication, ensuring every element of his work was completed at the highest level. He has an endearing personality and was an asset to me and to the Company.

I wish Cecil well in his future endeavours.

Yours faithfully

Penny Carrington
