Past attendees have said:

"First off, I'd like it to be understood that no matter where our professional futures lie, the following words of gratitude are genuine, and are with no expectations of return or reward whatsoever. Your seminar was the best education I've ever received in both the craft and business of acting. Your blunt honesty was exactly what I've always hoped for from every acting class, casting director workshop, or anything of the sort I've ever participated in, and I know my craft and career have benefited greatly from it. During the seminar, you gave me the most important piece of advice I've received to date. (Though you told me to keep it to myself, I'm sure you know which one it was anyway) I look forward to keeping in touch with you, and wish you all the best." -- Sincerely, Ian
