"My students were fully engaged for every moment! In my opinion THINK FAST is a unique and valuable program that creates teamwork, language development and provides a safe atmosphere for students to take risks and fail. I would recommend this program for schools across the province of Ontario."
-Charlene Cook, Drama Teacher
Humberview Secondary School
"As well as being one of our company’s favourite all time improvisers here (her picture on the wall testament to this) we found Anne to be professional, gracious and inspirational in her teaching and performing.
I have personally worked with Anne delivering corporate training and teaching workshops and you couldn’t ask for a more trusted partner to work with, she truly embodies the philosophy that she teaches, it’s contagious and she inspires and supports everyone around her.
Her work with us on our schools programme was also exemplary."
-Kemsley Dickinson, Owner
Courtyard Playhouse Theatre, Dubai
“What made our experience with Mat and Anne so special was that they never condescended to the students. They demanded work of the highest quality while still maintaining an atmosphere of trust and fun where each young cast and crew member felt valued. They modeled professionalism by being on time, prepared and engaged. It was not only a wonderful time of learning for the students, but also became an invaluable period of professional development for the directing faculty. I would whole-heartedly and without reservation recommend entrusting the personal and artistic growth of other aspiring actors into their capable and nurturing hands.”
-Scott Garbe, Head of Drama and the Theatre Arts
The Country Day School
"Mat eats, breathes and lives improv. He is an inspirational teacher who puts the fun into any improv class. As a performer, he is both charming and hilarious whilst being a great support to his fellow players. It is obvious that he absolutely loves his job - he is a joy to have around any improv class or show!"
-Stephanie Geiges, Past General Manager ComedySportz Berlin
