Enter the jungle: a year in Borneo, RSPB Malvern local group, September 2016

“Thank you for coming to speak to us. The story you had to tell of your involvement with the Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project held much interest for our Group as evidenced by the questions and comments from the floor. Your commitment to, and enthusiasm for, conservation work shone through your presentation. We wish you well in all future projects.” – Worcester and Malvern Local RSPB Group

My RSPB journey, Being the RSPB training, October 2015

“Matt spoke to our 35 guys earlier today. His speech was spot on, engaging and very relevant. The fact that Matt started his career with the RSPB as a fundraiser himself helped enormously of course. Not only was he credible, he also completely understands this audience. In addition, our guys could see that there are other career paths to pursue if they can apply their skills. Matt is a perfect role model for these guys who do one of the hardest jobs in the RSPB.” – Gerda Flumm, RSPB training manager

West Malvern Women’s Institute guided dawn chorus walk, 3 May 2015

“Matt managed to turn a cold, wet, (very) early morning into a thoroughly enjoyable dawn chorus walk for West Malvern WI. He clearly knew what he was talking about and described well the bird songs we were hearing as well as the birds themselves. He took the time to make sure that every member of the group had heard and successfully identified each song before moving on to the next one, and later on, back in the warm and dry, he answered a wide range of questions about birds and bird populations. The weather did not make for a very promising start, but Matt’s knowledge and enthusiasm turned the morning round for all of us.” – Julia Goodfellow-Smith, West Malvern Women’s Institute
