“While working in Singapore for a number of years, I had occasion to attend, participate in and officiate at innumerable events of every shape, colour and size.  It is one of the great pleasures of an overseas posting.  One such event that I hosted, and which still stands out for me, was a ‘Let Elephants be Elephants’ presentation by Australian zoologist and author, Dr Tammie Matson.  It stood out for the passion and commitment of its delivery, the depth and interest of its content, and for the way it engaged its audience, from the very young to the very old, inspiring many of them to action.  I look forward to being again in the right city at the right time to join another presentation by Dr Matson.”
