Meet James Raffan. Speaker, Author. Adventurer.

“accessible and refreshing”

Kyle Clarke, Queen's University, Horwood Conference Convenor

James Raffan is a skilled storyteller, whose passion for the northern landscape and its people, wilderness travel and Canadian culture is clearly evident when he speaks.  Both informative and inspiring, James is able to convey his knowledge to others in a manner that is accessible and refreshing.  When presenting the closing keynote at our recent conference, his careful preparation was apparent, as he seamlessly interwove current and past issues within our field with broader national topics and his own experiences, whilst also artfully paying special homage to our conference dedicatee.
