“Just to say thanks for organizing this presentation. While I knew some of this story was great to have Christo tell his story in person. I’m sure all watching took a lot from this presentation and I hope carry this powerful message of mutual respect with them moving forward.”
“Thanks very much for giving us an opportunity to learn far more about such a great man and the situations around his life. I found today very informative, powerful and certainly emotive.”
Christo spoke well and conducted a great experience from start to finish. The guests really enjoyed his company and story.
Christo was the guest speaker at this gala dinner. He was amazing; he blew the audience away with his insights into his journey with Nelson Mandela. The conference theme was Change – Better.
A massive thank you to you, Andrew, and Christo. The group absolutely loved the session!!!!
I had the great privilege of speaking to Christo Brand yesterday about his experiences as a prison warder for Nelson Mandela and the amazing friendship they developed. Andrew and Clementine, our Sixth Form students, were brilliant with their interview. A truly inspiring experience.
Our boys will really have benefited from speaking to Christo and to you, and it is an experience of great meaning that I hope they will not forget. I hope it will be possible to repeat it next year!
It was a great thrill to meet with Christo yesterday. The pupils were transfixed by Christo’s stories and the remarkable insights into the life of Nelson Mandela. The session was wonderfully conceived and well-structured and I am grateful to you, both for facilitating the event and juxtaposing the lives of Christo and Nelson Mandela in this very accessible way.
The session prefaced a wider discussion around the evils of Apartheid and recent South African history and your resources were useful in this respect.
I am sure that the session will live long in the memory of all that attended the event. I look forward to repeating it in the future.
Wow, what an amazing morning for Josie and her classmates! Such a special time spent with Christo. It was almost surreal to be in the presence of Christo, and to think that he was such a big part of history. It is an incredible story! Thank you so much – this will be something the kids will never forget!
It was a fascinating talk, very powerful. Please pass on my thanks and greetings to Christo – it was an honour. – Dale Harrison
Thanks again for a stellar event last night – Christo was wonderful and our whole community loved getting to hear his story.
