"Mike was delightful and a real pleasure to work with. He fitted in with the day really well and picked up on all the various activities as if he had planned to be there all along. It was lovely that he spent time talking to a variety of groups of staff during the breaks and I would like to thank him, once again, for stepping in at the last minute – a few new viewers for the ‘One Show’ I suspect!"

"The Guernsey SPCA in planning our 150 year celebratory ball was in search for a speaker with an interesting wildlife background to help our landmark year event and also to help focus on wildlife and the need for a new wildlife hospital in the Channel Islands. We must say a huge thanks to The Speakers Agency and a special thanks to Mike Dilger who was our keynote speaker and helped provide an entertaining and interesting talk all about his background and work with wildlife, his travels and stories from his media career so far."


"Your generosity in publicly thanking various members of the audience was a lovely surprise for them, and for those of us who were not in N.Wales at the time you were living here. The video clips you showed us were superb, and the insights you gave into the technicalities of filming will make us more knowledgeable and appreciative viewers in future. On behalf of the North Wales Wildlife Trust thank you for an excellent evening"
