Catholic Secondary School Reviews:

I have worked at the school for over 15 years. Your presentation

was the best I have seen. 

Holy Cross Secondary School,

Algonquin & Lakeshore District School Board, Kingston

It was our pleasure having you
to All Saints. I have heard nothing

but positive feedback from the students and teachers…they truly

enjoyed your presentation. I have one lady who would like you to

speak at her son’s school. Thanks again for taking the time out

of your busy schedule. We will definitely have you speak again.

Take care.

All Saints High School, Durham District Catholic School Board,  Whitby

I thought the presentation was very relevant. (Matt) was wonderful – entertaining, humorous and non-judgemental, and yet he made a strong point. My grade eleven advanced class really enjoyed it and they were open to receiving our stale message delivered in such a refreshing way.

Bishop P.F. Reding Secondary School, Halton Catholic District School Board,  Milton

Excellent, He has a humorous way of informing students and entertaining them. He didn’t speak down to them, but treated them as responsible decision makers. Absolutely recommend.

Holy Trinity Catholic High School, Ottawa Catholic School Board

Excellent!  Both Staff and Students were entertained, enthralled, and understood your message.

St. Johns Catholic High School - Perth, Ontario

Even after the holidays the students were still talking about your presentation. In fact, during the holidays with guests at my home whose kids attend Saint Joseph's, comments were made regarding the positive impact you made, Again, thank you!

Saint Joseph’s of Scollard Hall Catholic Secondary School, Nippising Parry Sound Catholic School Board - North Bay, Ontario

I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job last week.  My Principal wanted me to thank you and let you know that we would love to have you back again next year!

St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School, Peel District Catholic School Board - Mississauga, Ontario

Your ability to capture the students’ attention was evident in the rapt look on their faces. I received many thanks and accolades from the students, staff, and administration of the school for such an effective presentation. I will be forwarding a memo to recommend your presentation to other staff members in our board.

Iona Catholic Secondary School

Excellent. I have had the opportunity to be present at two of matt’s presentations and I fully endorse his approach. Matt engaged the students so as to speak to their hearts and minds instead of speaking at them. Both teachers and students indicated to me that they appreciated the presentation.

St. Benedicts Catholic Secondary School, Sudbury Catholic District School Board - Sudbury, Ontario

Excellent.  Very Entertaining presentation, with some serious issues well integrated into the high energy talk. Our students laughed and laughed and were thoroughly captivated by Matt, from start to finish. Our staff feedback was positive as well.

Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School, Toronto Catholic District School Board

I have received nothing but positive comments/feedback regarding your presentation from students and staff alike. It is no small feat to blend humour into such a serious message but you managed to do so with ease and without “preaching”. Your ability to do this allowed everyone to relate to your story at some level. Thanks again for sharing your message with us.

Brother Andre Catholic High School, York Catholic District School Board -  Markham, Ontario

Highly recommend it. Anytime you are available you are more than welcome to return. The kids really enjoyed it and got your message. Our principal particularly enjoyed it.

St Joan of Arc Catholic High School

Excellent!  Thanks you very much for visiting our school -we really enjoyed your presentation.

Private School Reviews

Finally, a missed academic period that was worthwhile! Staff and Students were talking about it for days afterwards.

Hillfield Stathallan College - Hamilton, Ontario

Your speak with a passion that attracts your listeners. You have also polished your presentation to the point that students stay engaged. Thanks for the positive message.

Media Reviews

The New VR – The message is difficult, but a new approach—instead of preaching, use comedy!  The teacher said the message had clearly got through.

The New VR

Evans’ technique works. With a combination of slapstick humour and serious facts, he had the attention of the school gymnasium, full of students, focused on him for one hour!

North Dundas Press

Evans did what so many other speakers aren’t able to do at a High School Assembly: catch the students attention!  Evans delivered his serious message… but around that nugget of wisdom was a schtick straight from Yuk Yuks.

Hamilton Spectator

He had the high school audience won over in minutes!  His satirical look at teen drinking and driving drove home the message.

The Owen Sound Sun Times

Evans has found the best way to relate to students.

Cambridge Times

Evans used humour to drive home the sober message that drinking and driving is a deadly combination.
