Testimonials


The framework that Natalie and the design thinking process helped us create has now been embraced across our entire organization.

By the end of the session ALL participants grew from it; indicating it was the best session in which they had participated in a very long time. Natalie elevated my team’s ability to understand and solve for growth in a more creative and innovative way. She astutely guided a cross-functional senior team to think about the inputs to a challenge in a more iterative manner – and to embrace the ‘process’ of discovering new opportunities & solving for effective solutions.

It was the best investment made in pushing us forward so that we are collectively future-ready to deliver solutions grounded in creativity; ones that drive growth and add value in numerous ways.

Natalie is a wonderful scholar-practitioner; she is able to connect the dots between theory and practice. Her remarkable, diverse background allows her to be a unique contributor to the new global, interdisciplinary world that is rapidly emerging.

Rosalyn McPherson, PRESIDENT, THE ROZ GROUP

Natalie is a superb facilitator! She is a great listener and helps your group to land on new insights at the end of a workshop.

Grace Killelea, President, Half the Sky

We are always looking for a rockstar keynote speaker to inspire and inform…Dr. Natalie Nixon had us all on the edge of our seats for her entire presentation! …My attendees absolutely loved her work across a multidisciplinary set of insights and anecdotes…punctuated with references to both her research and to hyper-relevant themes.

It was inspiring, but not cliche.
It was fun, but not trite.
It was academic, but not condescending.
It was informative, but not a lecture.

Nigel Prentice, Program Director, IBM Design
