She was one of a handful ... that we selected to be a keynote speaker at the event... Cecilia was the highest rated speaker ... Her contribution to the programme was invaluable, and I am grateful for the ongoing support of rockstars like her.

Cecilia is a force of nature and the only person I refer as a ‘mastermind’. When I first met her at MOB I was blown away with not only how ambitious her vision but how much she had been able to accomplish with little very help or support.

Insightful, engaging, and entertaining... Her experience and passion resulted in a great experience for the conference attendees and opened their eyes to the radical changes driven by Industry 4.0.
— Jonah Normand, Senior Manager AutoDesk
The audience not only connects immediately with her but also (almost ;-) falls in love with her because of her natural way and because of her authenticity.
