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 for a while 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 are on this website.

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.

Property is a very selfish career and I am putting my full attention as a Professional Practitioner in Real Esate at National Real Estate Bloemfontein, the property giant in the Free State and Northern Cape.
