About Christo

The human mind, how people behave and perform interested me since I was 14 years old. It is still fascinating to me to read psychology literature at age 62.

I was born and bred in Bloemfontein. My tertiary studies were at the then University of the Orange Free State. I obtained an honours degree in psychology.

After my studies I worked as a personnel officer in the South African Defence Force for 4 years. The human resources journey was continued in the corporate world the next 19 years.

I was amongst other things a recruitment officer, an administrative officer, a retirement funds consultant, a client services manager and a branch manager.

The property industry was next for 14 years where I worked as an estate agent. Covid put a stop to my property career in June 2020.

From July 2020 to November 2020, I wrote 50 personal development blogs on how people can develop or acquire new skills. They were posted on a website, Facebook and Linkedin. I compiled them in 2 e-books on Amazon.

Covid altered employment and business requirements permanently. Thus, we must consistently improve or acquire new skills to stay profitable and employable.

Online educating is a way for all to adhere to the unexpected skills demand caused by Covid.

Mathematics is one of my hobbies. It is a subject that suffers a lot of misinformation and prejudice.

The website is my humble endeavour to contribute to skill development.
