"Emi is a talented facilitator, and her approach to design thinking is the best possible combination of down-to-earth and 'design magic'.  It was really fun to watch her work, and it meant a lot to me to have the folks I work with get to experience such a high-quality design thinking process.”

Jill Vialet
CEO & Founder


Chalkboard Project

"I had the amazing opportunity of working with Emi as keynote speaker at our annual meeting with philanthropists, educators, and state leaders. If you ever want a dynamic and thoughtful speaker to challenge the way you think, energize a crowd, and engage in the most authentic and delightful way, Emi is the one. You’ll be blown away!"

The d.school Executive Education Team

"Emi has worked with our team on several critical projects this year that required expert storytelling and writing. She delivered work that pushed us past the expected to something truly special and valuable— and this was especially impressive considering the highly conceptual ideas, little direction and vigorous schedule. Emi is a wonderful project partner— extremely professional, flexible, creative and diligent."

"Emi does a great job of tailoring her information to the needs and issues our organization deals with. I appreciated how she explains not just the processes of design thinking, but also the underlying concepts and principles. It really is a way of thinking, not just doing, and it takes a good coach to help you understand how to think."
