Your level of education was superior to that of any I had ever received, and it is for that I am forever grateful. I have been employed by a former student of yours (I believe you are aware of this) as a Marketing Intern. For all this, I owe you a massive thank you because it was your reference letter written to me that instantly influenced my employment.

Dear Mr Zachos, I am writing to you with a feeling of great pleasure, appreciation and gratitude for your valuable contribution to helping me attain my qualification. I graduated last month, I have been meaning to write to you to say thank you. It has really been a great honour being your student, I am grateful to my parents for affording me the opportunity to attend your college because I learned so much in an incredible way. I got my first distinction in a very challenging module statistics and I couldn't believe it, your passion and dedication to your craft set you apart from the average lecturer or teacher, you made me fall in love with numbers and maths all over again, you made learning fun and interesting the way you would go the extra mile in helping us understand the roots of the concepts you taught us. You made me love waking up in the morning to attend your class, from the Friday tutorials when I was full time, those were my favourite, every Friday I would go out of that classroom feeling fulfilled and rejuvenated from the challenging exercises we engaged in. Not only did I learn a lot in terms of academia, but you also taught me a great deal about discipline, manners and being an individual of integrity, I really enjoyed it when you told us anecdotes or stories in between a lesson as well as your opinions about current affairs and the amount of incredible knowledge you have always blew me away. I believe your philosophy has shaped me in a way, and I can never stress how grateful I am for the opportunity of being schooled by a great man like you. I want to emulate your strong refined character to have a positive impact in this world. Thank you for everything Sir, I will never forget you, I am going to make you proud one day you are going to read about me on Forbes and all the top business publications, and you must know that, that is your protege.

And a big thank you and huge appreciation to Mr Zachos for always pushing and answering all my simple questions in FM’s, FAM, Stats. And for the days when all I could muster was a blank stare and felt completely clueless, and he would stop and say; Les, I can see you have a question, what don’t you understand? And my last subject, Business Management, what a leke class, our lecturer was excellent – she made every bit interesting, her explanation of nodes is memory, that you should think of as a hanger that you hang associations on, will never forget that. Thanks again to all at the college, you guys are leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.

Sean Johnson Katapult Business School Review

What I achieved since leaving the college is remarkable considering I obtained 4 - F's , 1 - E and 2 - C's on my Grade 12 matric certificate in 2003. I was enrolled at RAU (now UJ) in 2002 and since my results in Grade 12 were so poor, I was declined admission into the 2004 academic year. I couldn't even enrol at RAU to study a Bachelors of Arts. My father and I met with Mr Zachos on 30 September 2004 and once given the chance, the rest is history. I am now 27 years old, working in Sandton, have my own office and have won several awards over the past few years. I want others to realise what a world-class college this really is. I have had lecturers from other student support centres who were the head of department for accounting and marketing at University of Johannesburg and with all due respect to them, they were not in the same class as Mr Zachos.

Sandra Poisson-Pereira

Please can you extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Zachos, Mrs Kathleen Storey and all at the college, without their dedication and passion towards their students this achievement would not have been possible. Thank you for everything you have done for me the last 5 years, without your guidance, motivation and continued support I would not be where I am today. Your college and ethos have changed my outlook on life and I engage in life with the belief of knowing that if you put in the time and dedication wonderful results can be achieved. The lesson, anything is possible if you put your mind to it, is exactly what I'm trying to pass down now to my son. Thank you once again for everything and keep on inspiring people to be the best they can be!

Dear Mr Zachos, I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me at college. I am of course referring to a high level of education you delivered to me as well as the life advice. I have gotten a job at a top enterprise IT security company and am settling in well. I really enjoyed statistical analysis and it is to this day, my favourite subject that I did over my degree years at the college. Thank you for everything, Sir.

Dear Mr Zachos, thank you for being such an amazing inspiration in my life. You showed that the only way to get great results is through dedication, determination and hard work. It is through those words of wisdom that I got the results that I did. I think about the days at the college often and miss every second of it. You gave me the extra drive to go the extra mile. Your passion and heart for your work are so rare in a person, I am so glad I got to meet you and learn from you. A big thank you to all my fantastic lecturers and especially you Mr Zachos for such a great experience!

Wren Orffer

One-of-a-kind college that prides itself in great results and a fantastic learning environment. For this, I am most grateful as it paved the way forward for me and enabled me to be in the position I am today. I have been with Synthes South Africa for 18 months now. The company is a multinational orthopaedic company that achieved a 23% growth on a huge base for 2011 I started as an associate product manager and have developed in the position. After finishing my degree I was promoted to Product Manager of Trauma and am responsible for the upper limb portfolio in South Africa. I am truly thankful for you putting my name forward for the position and aim to better myself every day. Keep well Mr Zachos and thank you again for your hours of hard work.

Keagan Chapman Katapult Business School Review

Keagan Chapman

In the last year, I have won 6 awards and I believe that I have been honoured with these awards partly because of the quality of education and lecturers that I had during my qualification. The standard your college sets is above the industry standard and it equipped me to go into the corporate world ready and prepared for what I had to go through. It's not easy climbing the corporate ladder but what I learnt at the college is invaluable. So thank you for all your hard work and perseverance that you all give to your students. It will be worth it in times like this.

Christopher Wright

Dear Mr Zachos, I am writing this to say thank you very much for all that you did for me in my years of studies. I appreciate all the hard work and late nights put in by you and all the team members at the college for the benefit of us as students. A big thank you to Mrs van Niekerk, Mrs Spolidoro, Miss van Beek and Mrs Zachos for all their help, I appreciate their desire and their dedication to make the college a great place for students to learn and be. A special thank you to you Mr Zachos, I always enjoyed your lessons, in particular the financial and statistical lessons, where understanding was paramount in grasping the subject matter. You always tried your best to convey as much insight and knowledge as possible which I enjoyed and appreciated greatly. You were always willing to go above and beyond for us. Your passion for teaching and trying to get the best from each student shined through and was front and centre in every lesson. I am grateful for all of the knowledge and wisdom that I have gained through my studies and strive to make good use of it in my career and my life.

Denzil Bradfield Katapult Business School Review

Denzil Bradfield

The classes consist of no more than 20 students which makes learning much easier. With such small classes, I have found the relationship between the lecturer and student is much stronger now. The information and help received from the lecturers at the College is of the highest quality which has made it easy for me to understand the material. The class becomes a tight-knit group. It is easy to create study groups and for us to help each other.

Hi Mr Zachos, hope you are well. Just writing to say hi. Not sure if you remember me. I have been living in Sydney Australia for the past 9 years, married with a baby girl of 3 months & work in telecommunications. Thanks for all your support when I was studying especially for Statistics, you were a great teacher. Thanks.

Rosalie McDonald

To Mr Zachos and team, wishing you a good start to the year. Thank you for your tireless support and encouragement during my stay at the College and for teaching me a valuable lesson of life – to work hard. May you continue to touch the lives of others, as you have done in mine. Wising you yet another successful year.

At a time when “Attention to detail and personal attention” are seen as clichés, it is very refreshing to find an educational institution which lives by the concept of service ad part of its creed.

Nicole Muller

Student

Being at the College has been a great privilege for me. It has changed the way I look at things in the marketing world and in our country. I have met different people in the college, meeting those people have helped me to understand different cultures and different personalities. We learn from each other.

Mluleki Sibisi

Student

Dear Mr Zachos and colleagues I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for helping me through my qualification. I know that, had I gone to any other college, I would not have received the personalized attention that helped me pass. I hope that your college will grow from strength to strength and wish you and your co-workers everything of the best, for the years to come.

Kathy Dokos

Dear Mr Zachos, so I have received my results and I have passed exceptionally well. I have officially completed my degree and I couldn't be happier. I received 81% for Marketing and 77% Brand Management. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you Mr Zachos and all the staff members at the College for the support and guidance that I have received throughout the three and a half years of my studies. I would never have passed my degree as well as what I have if it wasn't for the College. Your study support, help with the assignments and guidance throughout the exam period is phenomenal and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through my degree.

Samantha Huggett

We are so proud of him and know your positive influence and encouragement played a huge role, and for this we thank you.

It is rare to meet a person with such passion and motivation as Mr Zachos has!

Marina Patuel

Student

Where do I begin? Wow, it has been an incredible two years, I have learned so much from you and your fellow lecturers! I'd like to thank you for the wonderful journey travelled, for keeping 'Rivonia' open when we were just three - I cannot begin to tell you what that meant to me! You have inspired, you have cared and you have guided. Without your strength, motivation and continued support, we would not be where we are today. You have made the journey worthwhile. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for just being you!

Vanessa Cusens

Student

I just wanted to let you know that you and your college have done wonders for me. We know that some of the students didn't like the "discipline" but if it weren't for that, you wouldn't be getting the top results from your devoted students. I am now the PR Marketing Officer at Natalia Estates in Margate, I am involved in the marketing of the San Martinho Beach development in Mozambique and will be coming up to Joburg later this month or next to market and network. I am enjoying the work I'm doing now since it involves what you taught me... thank you!!! Thank you for allowing me the privilege in getting to know you AND you have crept into my heart and I will never forget you and your "chalk fingers".

Tarryn Du Plessis

Student

After failing dismally through Sandton Business College, I managed to pass all my subjects and it is all because of your effort and brilliant notes.

Victor Selaelo

Student

Starting my year at the college, I was immature and undisciplined. I had NO idea how I was going to survive a marketing degree with subjects like FM and Stats, after all, I spent my whole high school years avoiding such subjects. I was not used to the rules, and I opposed them at every turn in my mind, why do I need a doctors note? Why is being 5 minutes late such a big deal? So what if I miss one class, or two or three? WELL, I can honestly say as a first-year I opposed them and as a fourth-year I am grateful for them. Without you Mr Zachos, I would not have had the belief that I could do well, I had not achieved a distinction in high school and sure as anything did not ever think it was possible to get nine as a college student. Thank you for everything

Kayley Mancer

Student

I looked up the college's email address on Google as I wanted to contact you and I was happy to see your great website! As I left South Africa years ago, I have not had the chance to see you for some time now, though next time I am home to visit my family it would be great to come past one of the campuses to say hello to you in person. I work for Pfizer and I have been with the company for more than 3 years now. I moved to New York City to work at Pfizer's world headquarters in 2007 and I am now based in Dubai where I am the Regional Professional Relations and Marketing Services Manager, looking after Africa and the Middle East. I am so fond of the college and yourself, as you gave me the foundation to be where I am today. I hope to hear back from you Mr Zachos.

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the College for the continued support and encouragement which has helped me tremendously throughout my journey at the collage. M Zachos, your fundamental morals and values that you have thought, I will carry with me always. Thank you so much for the continued support and astounding reference.I will forever be thankful! To Mrs van Niekerk, Mrs Coetzee and Mrs Zachos, thank you for the great lectures and sincere support. I would like to praise you and the staff for your finer quality in educational standards and wishing you all the best for the years ahead.

Meagan Benjamin

Thank you to Mr Zachos as well as Mrs Van Niekerk and Mrs Coetzee for pushing me and giving me such amazing support in the journey of me obtaining my degree in Marketing Management. Now that I have my degree I feel on top of the world. I have an amazing job at CTU Training Solutions as a marketing assistant and it safe to say without your college I would never have been where I am today. Also, thank you for teaching me that a little hard work never killed anyone. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Nicole Parker

Hi Mr Zachos, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for helping me through last years classes with my degree. A BIG thank you to you for the help with the two financial subjects, you have a system that truly works at the college and I shall have no hesitation in recommending your college to anyone who wants to do a marketing degree.

A wonderful educational institution. The School takes a personal and vested interest in their student’s educational journey. Having studied at alternative institutions, I would recommend them as the best in JHB.
