PUBLIC SPEAKING + EDUCATION 

At the heart of the studio is a deep belief in knowledge, and sharing what we have learnt over the years as well as the constant stream of information and inspiration we process. 

Having been a designer for over a decade, it wasn't a planned path to become a public speaker, but a welcomed organic evolution in Geraldine's career after she was asked to show her forecasts. 

Geraldine uses public speaking and guest lecturing as a powerful tool to inspire and engage. The goal is to encourage independent thinking and teach how to connect inspiration into trends and powerfully communicate new ideas.

Working with individuals, brands and institutions from concept to product development, the studio's methodology is to empower with a blend of strategy, pragmatism, creative and mindful thinking set to jumpstart or solidify your future choices.
