What people are saying about Ned Tillman’s talks

“I have been re-inspired by a great speech … The man … speaks from the heart.” John Gresham

“Your presentation really inspired our organization.” Nancy McAlister

“Your … style of teaching is the model of engagement. I learn so much every time I hear you speak.” Audrey Suhr

        “Your inspiring books can only be matched by your personal interaction and              connection with the audience in a way Ned Tilman can only do..  You took us to the places you love and inspire you, but at the same time connected us to natural world in our back yard.  I especially enjoyed the connection to other enviromental writers and their influence on you and the environmental movement of saving the places they loved and we have come to love.  I found myself smiling and nodding in agreement.” JoAnn Roberts

“I REALLY enjoyed your talk!  It was very inspiring, yet reassuring.  I like the way you told the environmental success stories of old– they illustrate that one person CAN make a huge difference, yet also describe how long that can take.  Two really important points. I also liked the way you pointed out that many of the things we take for granted now (i.e., the Cuyahoga river NOT bursting into flames) were the results of a lot of passionate people slogging along and probably feeling like they were getting nowhere.” Sara Via, Professor of Ecology at University of Maryland at College Park.
