Student comments from Alberta/Saskatchewan tour in April 2008

This is Julie (I won the first book during your presentation today) and I would just like to say what an awesome presentation that was. That was the ONLY school presentation I have enjoyed. It was humorous yet serious and very informative. Thank you very much I, and everyone I have talked to, have taken a lot from this experience today.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

You did a presentation at my school, Hilltop High School, today and I was really glad to have you come to our school. I knew the internet was a dangerous thing, but I never knew how EASY it was to get someone's identity.

I found your presentation very informative and hope that you have the chance to come back to our school next year, or whenever, to give another presentation on how dangerous it really is out there! Really enjoyed your presentation.

I am one of the students at Saint.Joseph school, i just wanted to say i really enjoyed your presentation. It really made me realize how much stuff out there now a days that could possibly harm you. Like how even a simple email could have you traced down to the very last detail.

Before it never even clued into me that predators would be able to track you through something so little as an email or a page, and how many creepers are out there now.

So i just thought i would email to let you know that i really enjoyed it. Thank you.

My name is Kiana, I was at your presentation earlier today at SCCHS. I thought it was an amazing presentation, honestly i loved it.

I really enjoyed the presentation that you gave to my school today. When I got back to my class we had a really great conversation, one that I will admit shocked and scared me a bit. Thank you so much for your time.

North Bay, Ontario School Presentation

Dear Mr Nickel
Today you gave a presentation at a catholic school called St. Joseph Schollard Hall, it is the school that i attend to. I'm very picky about presentations, because sometimes they tend to contradict each other, or we have been told time and time again not to do something! I don't like these presentations because they are similar to a broken record, repeating themselves. Also when a person comes in they claim to have something negative to happen to them but you don't always know if they are telling the truth or not.

I think you should continue to talk to kids instead of parents about what can happen and you're experiences. You're topic is interesting and captures attentions! Even the kids with small attention spans. When its adult to teen telling us what can and cannot happen we naturally rebel and believe we are invincible, but when an expert not only tells us but SHOWS us it changes the table around.

I was one of the kids that thought nothing would happen until you came around. Overall what i'm saying is you're presentation was not only moving but humorous, it is the presentation few only wish they could get. Keep it up! I think you should continue talking to both teens and adults changing the world one presentation at a time.

I was at one of your presentations today (tuesday) and I just wanted to let you know that you did an amazing job! Most people come in and say don't talk to strangers, but you on the other hand, said that and showed me how quick and easy it was to track people down! I've been talking to other class mates and they all said the same thing! You really did a great job...at scaring me...but that's ok! I'd rather you scare me and not get hurt than being being baby talked and getting kidnapped! Thank you so much for coming!

Student comments from Alberta/Saskatchewan tour in November-December.

"Rob - Thanks for coming to our school today. I have to admit I was making fun of you before you came. Figured I knew it all, but after seeing your presentation today, I now know I don't know half of it. All the kids in school are talking about you and how you are the best speaker we have ever had. thanks again for coming and thanks for everything you do."

"You're a great speaker, and you can tell you get the younger generation. Thanks for talking to us, not at us, I know you got to the majority of the kids in our school by doing your presentations the way you do, not many speakers can do that!"

"My name's Erin (although i'm sure you could find that out if you wanted to). I'm in gr. 11 at Burlington Central High School. I just wanted you to know that I really enjoyed your presentation. My parents were always warning me about what I put on my facebook and myspace but I never really took it seriously. I thought I knew the dangers out there I thought I was being safe. Your presentation really opened my eyes so thank-you."

Thunder Bay Source Newspaper

Last Week over 200 Aboriginal sutdents spent a day learning about gangs, drugs and internet safety and it was actually pretty cool....

One of the highlights was a presentation on Internet Safety given by Rob Nickel, a former OPP officer who now specializes in educating people about safe surfing. Nickel gives talks all over the world, including on the Dr. Phil show and excels at grabbing teens' short attentions with his "cool guy" style...
