…We had a fabulous night with Sean last week. He was a very entertaining speaker whose passion for birdlife shone through. We had around 80 people attend and the feedback was very positive indeed, in fact we had several requests to have him back again! It was a great night.

Just wanted to pass on our appreciation for booking Sean Dooley for our organisations end of year function. Sean was delightfully funny, informative and generous with his time with the members. His talk was well received and we had record numbers turn up to hear him.
