"Beyond the ideas of right and wrong is a place where we shall meet" Jalāloddin Rumi
Here is an article from the Theatre Times about the workshop I facilitated at The Story Moja in Nairobi.
'In a series of workshops at St Andrew's Turi, Christian inspired our students with his innovative exploration of storytelling from a diverse range of cultures. He has an admirable ability to connect with students, using both humour and intellectual thought to engage above and beyond the curriculum. After participating in his workshops, the students had a real 'buzz' and excitement about writing, and as a school we're looking forward to fostering this enthusiasm and inviting him in again.'

“What to say about a man who inspires simply by his presence? His honesty and lack of fear to say what needs to be said in a way that can be understood and accepted is unique. It is a pleasure to so completely become a part of the worlds his stories draw you into. Through his style, diction and attitude you are compelled to learn for yourself what you need to learn and recognize what you need to recognize. His stories are open enough to have meaning to all without ever restricting the interpretation to one or two. And his attitude mirrors that! Thank you Chris, for the multitude of visions, lessons, and learnings you have provided!

Thank you for having been able to connect seamlessly to the team during the days working process selecting stories that fitted into the context of the meeting. You made all participants think. Through your stories they became ready to accept different views and adopt different perspectives.
In the evening you made them relax and helped everybody to get into deeper, personal conversation.
The whole team enjoyed having you with us.
Looking forward to have you again with us
With best regards

“We have worked with Chris in a high level political setting.
He understands how to draw people into his spell and to raise an event to a higher level. when the participants reflect back, in a few years time, to the event Chris is sure to be one of the high points that they will remember.”

“Chris Rogers has something magical and mystical about him.
I have heard him speak at various events where, after just a few moments, all of the participants have been drawn into his world and you could have heard a pin drop.
He masterfully understands how to bring people into other worlds and his deeply touching stories all have a connection to the real one.”
Tobias Beck. International speaker, lecturer & consultant.
"To describe the work and impact of Chris you would need to tell a story and who is better than him at doing this? But it is more than that, Chris made us and our partners from 33 countries and cultures speechless and reflective during our conventions and he has become an integral part of our Vapiano Story! If you doubt to hire Chris you definitely need him ..."
