"Rebecca's improvisation clinic was able to accomplish what decades of military education and training has not been able to do the next generation of senior military leaders."
- Joe Funderburke, Military Event participant
"...I am particularly impressed with Rebecca's ability to work with people of different backgrounds and roles in the studio, from the mailroom to the executive suite. She is able to read people and circumstances well. She adjusts her content and presentation to match what is needed, without diluting her core message. In improv terms, her ability to be ‘present’ in each situation is in itself a great example of the power of her craft.
Until we started working with Rebecca, we were not sure one of the most critical skills for a film studio, creative collaboration, could be taught. Rebecca’s work in the studio has shown that it can be taught and learned, and not merely as skill in its own right, but as a platform for greater creativity and involvement in work the studio."
- Randy Nelson, former of Dean Pixar University, Pixar Animation Studios
