Corné Britz – MBA @ GIBS (firstname.lastname@example.org)
After extensively searching for professional transcription services, I was referred to Laura Bezuidenhout by a very satisfied previous referral. After working firsthand with Laura myself I can sincerely testify that her reputation of professionalism and work ethic exceeds all expectation. Not only was she extremely courteous, professional and efficient in everything she did, but also willing to transcribe even the most challenging of transcripts for me without hesitation in a very short amount of time. Many thanks once again Laura for your seamless effort. All the best to you on your future endeavors. (Sept 2017)
Andy Skarda - Australia - CEO
Laura has delivered amazing service, on time and incredibly efficiently. I have been revamping a training course that has audio content featuring accents and unusual terminology, and Laura has delivered perfect transcripts every time. If you are looking for an affordable transcription service with fast turnaround and accurate transcripts, you’ve found it! (Dec 2016)
Nadine Broodryk - Researcher
Laura immediately took ownership of the work needed to be transcribed - she did a prompt job of completing a huge assignment without hesitance and was always on standby in situations where I needed to contact her regarding my work. She delivered transcripts on an almost daily basis which helped immensely to keep the flow in my work. She takes pride in her work - a quality I value highly. Although I have never met her in person I could sense that she has a lovely personality that accommodates and understands. I wish her only the best in her future endeavours and trust our paths will someday cross again. (Nov 2016)

Just to add on to my previous recommendation written for Laura; Laura has been doing my medical transcriptions for about four years now and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I welcome any direct contact for somebody who wants to chat to me about the fantastic services that Laura offers. (April 2016)
Mr S Mukasa - Bremen University of Applied Science, MBA Student (Switzerland)
Using the services or Expert Virtual Assistant has been nothing but a pleasure. Having researched a few other similar services, I found that Laura was by far the most professional and punctual right from the very beginning. Expert Virtual Assistant gave me an excellent service for a very fair price. One thing I value most in dealing with any company is integrity with a good service, and this is something that EVAS certainly has and provides. It will only be a pleasure to work with Laura again in future. (Aug 2015)
Leslé Ince-Garcia (Master’s student: Cape Peninsula University of Technology)

It has been an absolute pleasure to make use of your transcription services.
Your process works well and your rates are good too.
I look forward to working with you in the near future. (Oct 2014)
Carol - Masters Student (UKZN)
Laura is amazing, efficient and quick. I am amazed by the effort and commitment that she puts into her work. Her services are impressive. A Masters Degree can be very stressful especially when it comes to transcripts but Laura made my job very easy by timeously transcribing my data and I didn't have a chance to stress over transcripts. I am truly grateful for your hard work and assistance. (Aug 2014)
Tony Niemeyer, Senior PR Consultant (Brand inc)
"I've used Laura for a number of clients including Nashua Limited, Dawn skincare products and our own agency, Brand inc, and I've found her quick turn-around times and near perfect transcription work an absolute Godsend. Having had to transcribe all my client briefings and interviews myself for a number of years, I appreciate how painstaking it is and how long it takes. Using Laura has freed up countless hours of billable time that I can spend on chasing new business." (2014)
Jan du Toit - Labour Law Practitioner
“I have been making use of Virtual Assistant Services for over two years and can recommend them for professional, accurate and fast service. Excellent value for money!" (2014)
Alex Eliseev - senior reporter at Eyewitness News and writer / author:
"I've had a great experience working with Laura. In my world, deadlines are absolutely crucial. Working in radio, I'm used to counting down minutes rather than days or weeks... but Laura kept up with my demands and delivered a professional service at all times. She was also pleasant to work with and showed her human side. And finally, the case we worked on was both sensitive and confidential, and she respected the rules we established while taking a genuine interest in the subject matter. I look forward to new projects. Alex" (2014)
Rentia Krämer (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Roxanne Andrew - Lecturer - Department of Finance and Investment Management - University of Johannesburg (email@example.com) April 2013
Laura transcribed the interviews for my masters study. I was impressed with the quality and professionalism of the service she provides. She is reliable and an absolute pleasure to work with and really made my life a lot easier. I would not hesitate to recommend her. Thank you Laura for all your excellent work!
Claudia Mummenthey Consulting cc (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I don’t know what I would have done without Laura’s excellent and efficient service. My work entails juggling multiple research projects at a time. Doing the transcription of digitally recorded interviews has always been a huge burden, stealing time away from the valuable writing-up of research reports. Laura’s work has freed up crucial time for me. I would use her again any time and highly recommend her services. (September 2012)
Dumisani Nkala - Masters student (email@example.com)
Expert Virtual Assistant and Laura in particular have been one of the best services companies I have worked with. Laura typed up all my interview transcripts for my Masters research. She was conscientious at all times, keeping me updated about progress on my transcripts and met the deadline we had discussed. She really adds a personal touch to the service and seems to really care about her clients. Great working with you Laura! Thanks again. (September 2012)
Joanne Kalil - Optometrist - www.familyeyecare.co.za (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Report and letter writing has - for years - been a time burden on me. With office hours being dedicated to consulting, night-time and weekend work became the norm with a never ending pile of reports to be done. Delegating it to in-office staff was not ideal, with phone call interruptions slowing the work and without the necessary training for accurate dictation. Hiring a separate typist would mean office space costs; taking time to find and hire the right person; and dealing with the change in office dynamics with any new hire. It was a real Godsend to find Laura on Gumtree! Her professional website, immediate response, complete professionalism, fast turnaround times and accurate transcription have taken enormous pressure off my receptionist and I.
Laura picked up the medical terminology / lingo very quickly and learnt the appropriate optometry layout norms easily, reducing my dictation time. I find her to be reliable, professional, highly aware of confidentiality, efficient and an absolute pleasure to work with. I look forward to our continued working relationship and would not hesitate to recommend her. Many thanks Laura!
Oliver Seale - University of Witwatersrand - Director: Special Projects (email@example.com)
I discovered Laura’s services when she emailed me at my previous employer about possible work. She agreed to transcribe my PhD interviews and did an amazing job. The timelines were tight and I often had to postpone interviews due to unavailability of participants. Laura took this in her stride and delivered the results every time I completed an interview session. Her service is proficient, professional and most importantly, person centered. I have recommended Laura to other PhD candidates. Thanks Laura!

To Whom It May Concern:
Laura Bezuidenhout transcribed more than 20 interviews I conducted for a book on leadership development in South Africa. The recordings ranged in quality from great to awful but Laura did a consistently marvelous job. Where a name or sentence were unclear she always made a notation to alert us but on many occasions her intuition as to what was said proved correct. In addition to delivering the transcripts on time, they were in a format that was clear and easy to read. Laura's competence and professionalism in her work were outstanding as a person, Laura was a pleasure to work with. It is a pleasure to highly recommend her transcription services along with any other assistance programme she may offer.
Leigh Meinert – TSiBA Education - http://www.tsiba.org.za
In a nutshell, meeting and working with Laura virtually has been a delight. I found her via Gumtree and asked many people to quote of a job of transcribing 25 interviews from audio clips. She was by far the quickest to respond and most helpful. I have never regretted asking her to take on the job, since it began in March. She works quickly and accurately and is extremely reliable. Her rates are also very reasonable.
Claire Williams - Court Reporter, England, UK (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Laura was thrown in the deep end with a very urgent job which also entailed quite difficult technical aspects she had to learn on the run. In addition the case we were working on was filled with medical terminology. Laura stepped up to the mark very quickly, learning as we worked, and in no time was producing excellent transcripts, including all the correct medical terms. She was of great assistance to me, reduced the pressure enormously and we succeeded in delivering the transcript dead on time. Well done and thank you, Laura!

Laura provided professional and efficient transcribing services for my MBA thesis. She was able to meet my very tight timelines which really took the stress off me. I found the transcriptions to be thorough and accurate. I have recommended her services to my classmates and would recommend her to anyone needing excellent transcribing services. Thank you Laura!
Claudia - Midrand Graduate Institute
Laura presented my transcription on time. The transcription was written in a professional and structured manner. Laura was always available if questions arose in terms of the task. I experienced Laura as a friendly person; I will definitely make use of her service again in the near future. Additionally, the price of the transcription was reasonable and cost-effective.

Thank you for a job well done. The transcripts were done faultlessly and with attention to detail, which greatly assisted me with my research work for the MBA.

Thank you again!
