“She knocked us dead!”
“The bright spot of the 2017 FRED Forum.”
“It was a great training with very inspirational insight into the Gen Z mentality! We all learned so much and Lecyca is a really a great trainer.”
“Lecyca is a spontaneous girl who can present very well. She knows how to captivate the audience. It was an educational and inspiring morning. ”
“Lecyca was one of the lead speakers at BDO Norways risk conference 2019. She spoke about what it will mean for an organization that generation Z is soon a part of the workforce, how to hire them, and how to keep them. Being a Gen Z herself, Lecyca engaged the audience with real-life examples and maintained a good balance between humor and seriousness. She received great feedback from the audience.”
“Loads of great feedback from our delegates on the Gen Z presentation!”
“Lecyca Curiel did a wonderful presentation at Institute for the Future, for a meeting of international presidents of one of the world’s largest corporations. Beyond just presenting, she led a great conversation with these very senior executives about what to expect from young people less than 22 years old as they enter the workplace. Lecyca is a powerful and personable presence!”
“It was great to work with Lecyca and Jahkini. They both have a very clear and calm way of presenting which keeps the audience interested. They are also the perfect speakers to tell more about Gen Z. All in all, very happy that they were part of E-Day 2020. ”
“What a fantastic presentation. We were moved to tears.”
