Recent comments from attendees:

This presentation was amazing! Mattias Klum really related and spoke on the students level without dumbing it down. Since we subscribe to National Geographic Explorer my students now wonder if Mattias Klum took the pictures. They truly were inspired by his closeness to his subjects as well as his ability to wait for the right photo opportunity. As an adult I was in awe of his ability. Relating experiences to home was a perfect blend of who Mattias was as a person and photographer. Thank you for this amazing opportunity.
Thank you, for your awe-inspiring presentation last night. It will truly be one that I never forget. As upsetting as the situation in Borneo is, it has charged me with a whole new energy and purpose when my husband and I travel there next summer. Thank you again, Mattias. You are an amazing person who stands for everything that should be (and will be, if we continue to make a change) right in this world.
Best talk I’ve ever attended. Anywhere! On anything! By anyone!! Definitely hoping to see you back in Calgary for another talk.
Awesome presentation tonight. I love the enthusiasm you seem to put into everthing you do! Wish there were more people like you in the world.
Today you captured the hearts and minds of so many. Many of us left your presentation looking at the world in a different way. I am certain your words and pictures made an impact on my 3rd and 4th graders. Your stories brought life to what so many cannot touch. Thank you for opening our hearts, eyes, and minds a bit farther.
