Student and staff agreed this was the best presentation we have had in

a long time. As a teacher it was great to watch students laugh and then

listen mindfully to Matt’s message. Highly recommend it.

Niagara District School Board

Great Presentation to highlight CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. The response from your presentations has been outstanding! Teachers and students have approached me as well as emailed me to tell me how much they enjoyed the presentations. Many students also “got” the messages that you were delivering and thought it was entertaining at the same time! Thanks again for taking the time to share your experiences and most of all for driving home the key messages……..I was impressed that students were actually quoting you about “meeting challenges and not quitting!”

Lockerby Composite School, Rainbow District School Board

On behalf of the School Council at Birchmount Park, I wanted to thank you for the outstanding presentations you made to our students in April. The feedback I have received from students and staff has been universally positive. Teachers have told me that discussions continued into their classes after the assembly! That is just what we wanted. The Council has long hoped to find a suitable presentation for our students and I believe we did it! Thanks again!

It is not often that I am inspired to write a letter because of an assembly I attended. However, today was an acceptation. I am writing this letter to thank you because the assembly was beyond excellent I was very impressed with your message and with your method of delivering the message. You had the students eating out of your hand, which is quite an accomplishment! …Again thank you for the excellent, funny, serious, and inspiring time this morning! Best wishes in your efforts to assist youth in Canada and around the world.

I just wanted to say thank you to OSAID and the United Way for bringing Matt Evans…he was entertaining (Great Laughs) and had such a great message that our students needed to hear. The students were great – listening when he had something serious to say and laughing at his funny actions/jokes- which was so nice to see!

Everyone loved the presentation, both students and staff. I wish to thank you again for your wonderful performance. Kids in the halls were talking about it for weeks afterwards.
