We have twice utilised the services of Andrew Butters, and both times we were very impressed with his professionalism. In the first instance he worked with one of our employees to ensure that he had a solid understanding of the Labour Relations Act. Since then we have not had a single labour relations incident. We have subsequently utilised his services to chair a difficult disciplinary and we were very satisfied by the way he handled the matter. The outcome was deemed fair by both parties and in fact we retained his services to assist the employee to deal with the issues that had led to the disciplinary. The fact that both the employee and I were happy to allow him to do his work is testimony to the fairness and professionalism with which he handled the matter. I can, without reservation, recommend Andrew Butters.
Andrew has facilitated and spoken at staff briefings for our company as well as to our management committee.

Stanbic Bank Botswana appointed Andrew Butters to assist us in conducting our annual salary negotiations for 2010/2011 with the banking trade union BOBEU. He was appointed by me as the representative of the bank during these negotiations and was responsible for the planning and preparation phases as well as serving as the lead negotiator for the Bank. Under his chairperson ship the negotiating committee managed to reach an effective salary increase settlement which fell within my personal mandate to the negotiating committee. I found Andrew to be professional, thorough and knowledgeable and to conduct himself in a manner which brought credit to the Bank and himself as a professional. I thoroughly recommend Andrew and would have no hesitation in utilizing his services again, should the need arise.
