“Arriving into a very busy portfolio, Russ excelled at the challenge. Tenacious and enthusiastic, he lifts the team when things get hard and delivers what he says he will do on time. I am impressed with all he has contributed and how he continues to grow and inspire others.”

Paul Hyatt, Programme Manager, Environment Agency

“With his open mind, heart and soul, Russ joined our volunteer family and took on the project very professionally. He would always involve us in discussions and keep his thoughts forward to the team, which not only helped us find good solutions but would also create a learning environment for everyone involved. He was always conscious and empathetic of our limitations of finance, manpower, day to day challenges and was a team player. He has always shared his knowledge and experience with anyone who would like to listen, telling us a lot about his open heart and the awesome human being that he is. Thank you for empowering us.”

Gaurav Gupta, Convergence Venue Coordinator, International Permaculture Convergence India 2017

“We were delighted to have Russ on board to talk to our volunteers about the future of festivals, sustainability, greener initiatives and his experience from working freelance in the industry. Our volunteers found it really informative and interesting. Russ was a pleasure to work with and I hope our paths cross again in the future.”

With genuine thanks and appreciation.”
