TRUST & ACCOUNTABILITY
Will Olivier joined the STRUXIT team in 2017 as an almost fresh graduate. Like most graduates he was bright eyed and eager to learn as much as possible.
In most consultancy firms the rules of training can be quite rigid at times, only allowing tried and tested engineers to take on more responsibility.
At STRUXIT, we work a bit differently, we realised early on that age is just a number.
If you show the right amount of skill and commitment to excellence that anything is possible. It was seeing this potential in Will that gave Hannes Wagner the vision to trust Will with a major undertaking in the first month.
Will managed to take on the full responsibility of the project, he took initiative and went above and beyond what was expected of him to make sure the project was delivered the STRUXIT way.
We believe that trusting our team enables them to take initiative and often enables them display layers of accountability unsurpassed.
Last month Will successfully registered as a professional engineer and are so proud of him.
We are so glad that we have been able to witness his professional growth.
- ¾ cup water
- ¾ cup white sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 orange
- 10 whole cloves
- 1 (750 milliliter) bottle red wine
In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break.)
HOW TO TAKE BETTER PHOTO’S WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE…
- Start with a clean slate
Clean your lens with a soft cloth (A T-shirt or jeans should work but be careful of harder materials.)
- A little framing goes a long way
Think about the layout of your picture, use a grid or the rule of 3rds.
- Ditch the digital zoom.
Your digital zoom lowers the quality of your pictures.
- Think about the lighting
Wherever possible use natural lighting but consider shadows before taking the shot.
- Steady yourself
Balance your arm on something stable or use a tripod whenever you can.
