Michelle is a person who helps people discover their creativity and teaches to think in new ways. She really knows about innovation from within. Being a very open-minded and passionate about everything new she can inspire you and your team to the “wildest” innovative projects.

Thanks to Michelle I have a very powerful tool to explain any my ideas or complicated strategies to my project team. I highly recommend collaborating with her.
As students of Master in Business Innovation in Deusto Business School and Cambridge University Judge Business School, I worked closely with Michelle in several projects.
