“In my teaching career, I have only once or twice been so delighted with a presentation in my school. One hundred grade 1-3 students were mesmerized by Johnʼs presentation. It was perfectly paced, interchanging still & motion pictures with his easy flowing commentary. He reminded us of the vastness and absolute beauty of our own country. The students asked very deep questions & John very skillfully answered them all. His sense of humour fit his presentation so well and left us wanting more. Thanks so much for coming, John.” Karen Norton, Principal, Jessie Duncan Elementary, Penhold, AB
6-12
"He is an exceptional speaker who, from the beginning, easily and effectively engages his audience. John unveiled his presentation in such a professional and inspiring fashion. It was a wonderful learning experience for all persons present; it was as if we had actually accompanied him on this particular expedition. All 250 grade 6-12 students and staff were captivated by the sheer beauty and magnificence of his breath-taking photography. I would highly recommend Johnʼs presentation at any school." Ken Sampson, Principal, St. Maryʼs, Taber, AB
9-12
“You have opened the gate to the road less travelled, to discussions about pursuing dreams, even if they are difficult, out of the ordinary or way off the beaten track. I appreciated the professionalism & quality of your presentation: how you seamlessly integrate video, photos and graphics into your show really adds to the quality. I know the students were inspired with what they saw, and so was I. Please let us know when you are available to tease more adventure out of the minds of my students. We would love to have you back. Bravo.” Dan Kenkel, Principal, Valemount Secondary, Valemount, BC
K-9
"John demonstrated a masterful ability to manage and engage our audience of students from K to 9, all in the gym at the same time. John intermingled science, health, biology, conservation, and global environmental issues neatly into his stunning presentation. We would highly recommend him to any school." David Walters, Principal, Enchant School, Enchant AB

“Feedback was great! Grade 5 & 6 teachers were very pleased : it fit right into the curriculum!” Keith Schantz, Barrhead Elementary, Barrhead, AB

“John engaged the students with detailed descriptions of his adventures and spoke at an appropriate level for both Division 1 and Division 2 students. John went the extra mile to make his presentation pertinent to the work our school is doing on the Inuit. His photographs were outstanding and the high definition projector he uses made kids sense that they were right with John in the Arctic. Great work!” Ralph Sorochan, Principal, Win Ferguson Community School, Fort Saskatchewan, AB
