It's been a bumper year for ImprovisAsian with role-playing for the Leadership programs at AMP, NRMA, the Department of Justice and the Attorney General, the NSW Crown Solictor's Office and Harbour Future Leaders. Ivan also appeared in the Crown's DVD and online educational video as well as running improv workshops for adults and teens.
We've also sponsored the charity ball for Working Hearts and Hands in support to Guide Dogs Victoria, with Ivan being the Master of Ceremonies for the night, ultimately raising thousands of dollars and over 110 people attending (plus a few Guide Dogs!). Our team also provided entertainment services for the Young Australian Chinese Charity Foundation's yearly BBQ (this year in support for Dr Chris O'Brien's Lighthouse at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital).
So, thank you. Thank you for your help in making ImprovisAsian the upcoming leader in training, and we wish you a belly filling, joyous and safe holiday season, and may 2013 bring you even more exciting, creative and successful fun!
May your open hearts, minds and arms be rewarded!
I was talking to a friend today who had doubts to what they were doing, so I thought I would write them a short story. I am by no means a writer, but I hope the point gets across.
In a little town, stood an old and intimate, brightly coloured shop filled with giggles and laughter of children. The smell of freshly baked gingerbread men tickled the air as the full bloom flowers seemed to beckon in the gentle breeze. Although the shop wore no sign, it was obvious from the beaming smiles on the children's cherub faces, that happiness was made here. Through the window, above excited heads, stood an elderly couple with cheeks plump with kindness, and eyes shining with playfulness. Their clothes wore stains of colourful paint, glitter and stars, as their hands cradled a lump of special clay. The colour of the clay changed from different angles, with changing temperature to match, when a quiet child, with his head shyly lowered, poked it.

Last Saturday (01 December 2012) the Working Hearts and Hands Charity Ball was held at the Centre Ivanhoe supporting Guide Dogs Victoria. With over 110 attendees and thousands of dollars of donated goods and services for the night and the silent auction, ImprovisAsian was one of the proud major sponsors for the inaugural event.
Besides being part of the executive committee of Working Hearts and Hands, Ivan Chew of ImprovisAsian attended the event and was the Master of Ceremonies for the night over the five hour duration. The event saw professionals dancers and bands, and early feedback from Guide Dogs Victoria, their client and trainers, and sponsors have been great!
As it gets closer to Christmas, ImprovisAsian also wishes you and your family a safe, loving stress-free and creative break!
