A very occasional email newsletter with expedition news, conservation resources and speaking dates.
He has been the catalyst for the personal development of a huge number of young people.
Interesting, informative and pitched at exactly the right level for our students.
James’ talk brought the experience to life and portrayed what before seemed completely unrealistic for a 16 year old as actually being quite possible.
An exceptional leader with a talent for inspiring and engaging young people.
His motivation, enthusiasm and experience shine through every time he gives a talk.
It was a fascinating insight into such an elusive animal and its precious pockets of habitat, told with professionalism and enthusiasm.
It was fantastic to hear positive conservation messages along with inspiring tales of his travels and research.
It was refreshing to have a speaker who talked with such passion.
He pitches his presentations at just the right level for our students and they were all hooked from the outset.
The students were engaged and the focus of the talk was pitched at just the right level for the group.
