"Thank you again for your fascinating presentation on the world of underwater archaeology. The examples you chose covered a broad spectrum of human history and, in spite of all that has been found to date, this underwater world is still largely unexplored territory. One wonders about what phenomenal findings await us. Your personal involvement in these "finds" really added to the impact of this presentation on our members."
"Your readiness in putting everyone at ease during your time spent with us generated a positive experience for all. Our sincere gratitude to you - you helped make the organizers' jobs so much easier & enjoyable by your accessibility and humor working with our participants. You certainly have a special gift for speaking!"
