My clients said that meeting Christo & hearing about his story was one of the highlights of their trip to South Africa. This is such a compliment as many of the clients are very regular travelers especially to Africa, so to WOW them with Christo, and hear these comments is very pleasing. They were still talking about meeting Christo once they had returned home to the USA.
Christo’s account allowed me to appreciate the power of forgiveness and education that Nelson Mandela championed.
A different perspective but undertones of hope that despite massive difficulty and hurdles, meaningful change could come about within a lifetime.
Christo’s story is so compelling and delivered with such genuine love and respect that he held the attention of the audience the entire time.
So moved by the humility and authenticity of this man, Mr Christo Brand, Nelson Mandela’s prison warder at Robben Island and then friend.
Christo received the highest overall score of all the speakers on the day. What an amazing conference – 180 financial planners.
Had the opportunity to meet Christo Brand and hear him tell stories about his job as a prison warden on Robben Island and how he became the best friend of Nelson Mandela. Remarkable! From poen2000 on Instagram
Our Earlybirds had the great privilege of receiving a special visit! They heard the story of the prison warder on Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was. Many thanks to Christo Brand for the opportunity to share your story with our group.
It was a pleasure meeting you and Christo! Such a wonderful story!! I hope to see you in Dallas soon.
We had the wonderful honour and privilege of hosting a tour with Nelson Mandela’s prison warder Christo Brand. Inspirational speaker, author of My Prisoner, My Friend. He takes guests on an informative, real time journey of his past and the experiences with our South African hero…Madiba.
Christo, it was an honour to have met you this morning and heard your truly inspiring talk on Doing Life with Mandela.
