Kind words on Creative Facilitation

“I’ve worked with Marc in several different capacities, from co-leading workshops to run-of-the-mill design projects. Marc’s always energetic and ambitious with a “get shit done” attitude. He can really motivate a group of creative individuals looking for inspiration and get you to question everything you thought was right.”

Brian W. Jones, Project M Advisor, Founder of Welcome


“I worked with Marc on a project to design and run an innovation workshop. Marc was a pleasure to work with, collaborative, creative, professional and always looking for ways to generate the best outcome. He understands the innovation process at a deep level, and how best to unlock the creativity of groups. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to work with him.”

David Hodgson, Founder of Humming Bird Labs


“I walked out of a workshop feeling completely exhausted, but also feeling weirdly empowered and proud of myself. I also viewed myself for the first time as being much more innately creative than I had ever really thought. I think many others felt that way, and I give full credit to Marc for giving us that experience.”

Justine Lai, participant at A Better World by Design, 2012
