Some of our more frequently asked questions.

I very much enjoyed the course, and although the content was heavy in places, it was delivered very sensitively and with a good dose of humour and humanity. Christo is clearly passionate about the subject matter, and he is a very credible and experienced facilitator. Ten out of ten.
