Bedfordshire Healthy Schools:  Nikki Sinden (Healthy Schools Consultant) 7th May 2009 - “The show was interactive, motivational and above all fun!  The humour and knowledge you demonstrated made the whole experience one that children will remember and share with their parents. The family challenge means children will take home the message and involve their parents by encouraging them to participate.  Within the curriculum, children are given many opportunities to learn; the magic show brought their learning to life and provided a fantastic opportunity to extend their experiences.”

Northamptonshire Extended Services: Jo Holmes (Evaluation ESCO) - It is with great pleasure that I recommend other schools within the County to book Eugene to present the Healthy Eating shows in their schools. I have worked with Eugene several times now (not just on the topic of Healthy Eating but also anti-bullying) and his shows are professionally presented, adaptive to need, motivational, inclusive and most of all, incredibly good fun!

Watling Lower School (Evaluation School):  Head teacher:  Mr Ian Black 20th April 2009 - “The show was extremely well-balanced between the magical content  and the Changes4 Life content,  the need to listen, to respond enthusiastically  and above all the essential feel good factor that was so well interwoven through the proceedings from the start to finish.”
