……I also like the idea of having you back here and Moscow as well so I will follow up.”
Lorie Karnath, president Explorers Club
You are an excellent speaker Mikael and that is a blessing to the field of exploration and explorers all over the world. Most astronauts complained that when asked about their experiences in space they had no answers to give. Astronaut John Young said that they should spend poets in space so that they can properly describe the experience. You dear friend are the poet in the adventure exploration arena. Keep it up!

We had dinner a week ago with Michael Palin and said we had met you and he sees you as one of the great explorers in the world. Nothing new there. But he spoke warmly of what you had done to inspire young people and that is your strength. You speak to a different audience. Most exploers come from the upper classes and have been able to indulge their curiosity for the world because of their personal wealth. Not true for you and that is what makes you so extraordinary. If you have any plans to come to London you must let us know. we would love to see you again.
“Mikael is an honest to God adventurer – he’s the real deal and more. His exploits are the stuff of the best adventure books you’ve ever read and he delivers it with a wit, authenticity and message that is powerful to say the least. Mikael kicks ass. I still remember the first time I ever heard him speak.”
Ridlon Kiphart , CAO – Chief Adventure Officer , Live Adventurously
“It was the best time in my life, Mikael, you have helped me to focus on the important things of my Expedition to the Kolyma. You are an amazing person. ”
Marcin Gienieczko, famous Polish explorer
“ Mikael kicked off the event with an inspiring talk on humanity and communication especially in foreign countries through his expedition in Siberia. He delivered messages of how one should never judge people, how one should learn to adjust in foreign environments and the humanity of people through his experiences. He left the audience pondering over these lessons and reflecting on themselves. Mikael proved to be a remarkable explorer, braving through what seemed impossible and an inspiring lecturer, teaching people great values and lessons that one should learn in life in a humourous and relaxed manner. He is definitely one of the best lecturer I have come across and I hope he will continue to inspire people around the world!”

“You are the funniest, most inspirational speaker I´ve ever heard.”
