I support companies to empower female talent, understand gender bias, and create an inclusive workplace. I give audiences tools and frameworks to level up as leaders. I've spoken at top innovative companies like Slack, as well as business and creativity conferences like Adobe MAX. Topics include women's leadership, creative confidence, diversity in design, as well as designing daily rituals for holistic performance.
Majo's talk blew me away. We invited her to speak at Dynamic/MTL, our quarterly event series, because we wanted to have a strong female voice talking about women's creative leadership, and she had a solid track record in the creative community. She gave a TED-style talk that engaged the audience, inciting us to think about big picture questions such as who gets to design the world's future products and experiences. It was a real highlight. After the talk, I invited her onto our new Workmode podcast to dig into how she approaches her work, and what struck me was her level of self-awareness and discipline. She is clearly the type of leader and role model that continues to empower through her talks and podcast. – Alex Nemeroff, Co-Founder of Dynamo
Majo has spoken at our past three Women in Design events at Adobe, Medium and Dropbox and she’s consistently received feedback from attendees as one of the top rated speakers because she’s both inspirational and actionable. I trust her to give an exceptional, high-quality talk, workshop, and/or panel discussion.” – Enrique Allen, Investor and Co-Director, Designer Fund
I invited Majo to speak at the Hivery's Entrepreneur Lab because she came highly recommended from a community member. Before the event, Majo and I got on a call and she was very receptive to tailoring the talk for our audience's needs, offering specific tactics female entrepreneurs can use to overcome their "good girl" tendencies, making her presentation both very inspirational and concrete. Her talk led to a fruitful, engaged discussion around monitoring these patterns in ourselves and as both business women and mothers. The feedback from the attendees was truly amazing, and I would absolutely invite her to speak at a future event as well as recommend her to other organizers. Majo is a shining example of the unique potential of women and what happens when we stand in our power, use our voices, and live fully. – Grace Kraaijvanger, The Hivery

Majo's empowering Women in Leadership talk at Source was one of the highlights of the conference. She created a safe space for participants to engage, share stories, and problem solve together. I left amped to take action armed with new insights and motivation. Shortly after, I rallied up women at my workplace to transfer the insights that I had learned and started a committee to create positive change at our company. Majo's talk was the catalyst for this. – Jaclyn Le, Former Director of Design at Healthloop and photographer
