On behalf of my form group at Latymer Upper School I just wanted to say thank you for the incredible journey you took us on this afternoon. It was a fantastic experience for myself and my form group to hear your life with Mr Mandela.
The feedback from faculty and students was great. They really enjoyed it and wished that you could have been in person! I told them that doing it virtually was probably much better because we never could have afforded the plane tickets!
I thought that this was a wonderful presentation that combined factual information with personal stories that allowed me to truly understand the relationship they had.”
Having visited Robben Island myself in 2013, it was amazing to hear another anecdote about life on the island and the overall feel of what South Africa was like during the time before Mandela’s release from prison.”
I learned new things about Mandela despite the fact that I thought I already knew his situation well. It was great to hear about his time in prison from a completely new perspective, that of a prison guard.
It was a pleasure having you! Really, really interesting seminar – the students enjoyed it!
What an honour to hear about such an inspiring man from someone so close to him.
Thank you so much for that incredible talk! Our children really enjoyed it – especially the group I had. We had a great conversation about it all afterwards.
Such an incredible opportunity for them to hear all about life on Robben Island from Christo.
Tonight we had the absolute pleasure of listening to @christobrand60 and his story as Nelson Mandela’s prison warden. Utterly enthralling, such a gentlemen and arguably a small part of one of the most powerful stories in modern human history. Thank you from all @YateleyManorSch
We are beyond grateful to you and Christo for your offerings and have had tremendously positive feedback.
We had a wonderful experience and my husband was astonished and emotional about all the tour.
It’s something we will for sure propose to our clients once tourism would be back.
Just a short note to thank you so much for a quite inspirational evening on Tuesday – I meant what I said that it really was the high point of lockdown for me! Your ears should be burning with all the praise that has been flying around from both parents and boys at Papplewick.
Thank you so much as well for being so patient with our boys’ questions and so generous in your time in answering all of them. I said that they won’t forget your talk in a hurry and I can safely say that I will never forget it.
