Our students and staff enjoyed the opportunity to attend your outstanding presentation, which I believe has a significant impact on many of us. Your combination of music, singing, story telling and sharing touched on the diverse topics including personal goals, self esteem, bullying & abandonment. The positive approach of the presentation was most welcome, and I am confident that many of our students will use some of the advice and suggestions given. Thank you for the powerful messages.

The presentation was outstanding! It is a fast-paced blend of mime, music, humor, and personal stories that is very well received by students. The message is straight to the point, We tend to have several speakers per year and the teaching staff always gives me feedback; the student response to "U be U" was extremely positive, one of the most positive we've ever had. I recommend Mr. Tay without hesitation.
