"I only listen to the first five minutes of every lecture, but with Mike Stroud I never left the hall because he was so interesting, fascinating and such a good speaker. So many speakers have interesting things to say but don't always know how to project - Mike was terrific on all counts. I highly recommend him for Festivals and Lecture Societies or anyone needing a cracking good speaker".  ANDY MOTTRAM, JONES LANG LASALLE


His talk was fantastic, and we are still having wonderful feedback from everybody who was there. I for one thoroughly enjoyed listening to him, and I think he may sell quite a few copies of his book!

"I must write to let you know how delighted we were with your lecture.  Your exposition of the trials and tribulations of Antarctic exploration entranced everyone.  It is a great testimony to your skills that our very young children and parents and grandparents equally enjoyed the lecture.  You were able to painlessly convey a good deal of scientific information while vividly portraying the physical toughness of the expedition.  The whole evening was a delight."
