Christo is Head of interventions for WorldsView Academy; Developer and Facilitator of the Higher Certificate: Organisation Development and Change, Organisational Communication and Personal Development. Christo van Staden worked first as an editor/translator in the Public Service, and then as a lecturer in communication studies at UNISA. The lecturing experience impressed on him the difference between teaching and learning, and quite often the chasm between the two. He left the university to pursue a meaningful vocation, and soon thereafter started working on developing bespoke learning/change programmes for organisations. Christo spent some time with Peter Dyson, internationally renowned learning design expert, to learn the secrets of the art. He has been involved in the development of culture development programmes such as brand ambassador and values programmes, as well as the implementation of large organisational work processes. Christo aims to support organisations become better workplaces and to enable work communities and employees to become better contributors to their workplaces and clients.
