“Cecilia gave a fantastic, inspiring, mind-opening talk to my global team of 460 people at BCG Design Studios. There was a lively and engaging Q&A; she left us all feeling truly inspired by what is next, what is possible, and the role design futures plays in changing the status quo.

I would strongly recommend any organisation to bring Cecilia into to talk, discuss and inspire their people!”

Lloyd Gozzett

“I got the chance to see Cecilia present at the Museum of the Future in Dubai back in February 2023, and it was an amazing experience. This wasn't your everyday presentation - Cecilia brought something totally different to the table, something incredibly special.

Cecilia has a unique way of blending science, tech, and engineering into a story about the future that gets people really excited. Her perspective and insights on how to design compelling futures are engaging and inspiring. With her infectious energy and creative stories (we love Herbie!) she encourages everyone to step outside their box and think about the limitless possibilities.

Cecilia is a trailblazer in the world of future thinking - a beacon of hope and possibility. Her ideas are transforming how we think about the future and inspiring today's and tomorrow's leaders to create a better world.

If you get a chance to hear her speak or work with her, grab it with both hands.”
