“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

“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
