“I am pleased to follow up on the project we did together, developing a series of videos on energy efficiency initiatives at Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site that are now housed and available to internet users.
Working with you and your team has been a pleasure. You understand our environment, our mandate and goals, and that allowed us to get to work on the project at hand. Your team worked within our parameters but also showed us what is possible. Your team is very professional and talented, and brought out the best of us in a very short period of time.
This was a pilot project. It was an opportunity for us to test a different communications approach in order to tell an important story to a wider audience. It was also an opportunity to learn more about how we might use this approach in the future. For us, this was a collaborative effort, driven by the synergy of the team – yours and ours – that allowed the project to evolve along the way.
From my perspective, the results of our collaboration speak for themselves: for a very modest investment on our part, we have a series of videos that are very well done and that are accessible virtually to a broad international audience. I look forward to getting the word out about these products and to hear what others think of them. And I look forward to keeping in touch, and exploring possible future project ideas with you.”

“We were delighted to have Rick Searle as the keynote speaker and field session resource person for the 18th Annual BC Lake Stewardship Society Conference co-hosted by the Baker Creek Enhancement Society of which I am the Executive Director. As the conference coordinator, I was exceptionally pleased with how quickly Rick caught the vision for the event and with how enthusiastic he was to contribute to it’s success. His keynote speech was just what we hoped for; it was engaging, relevant and a bit provocative, challenging participants to look at wetlands and lakes from a watershed or systems perspective rather than as separate independent entities. Based on this experience, I would not hesitate to have him back or to recommend him as an excellent presenter to other groups looking for one.”
