Testimonials from Innovation Training Workshops

J. Chang Freelance Designer

I liked the flow of the presentation where Abound would explain a concept or two, then have something interactive after it to apply or understand the concept. This also helped to divide the speaking portions up so people wouldn't feel as restless. The facilitation was really great.

Sr. Director, UX - Warner Bros. Discovery

I thought it was a really good workshop. Leo was a terrific facilitator. I really liked his thought on limiting beliefs... imposter syndrome is real and stressful!

I loved the workshop. Great message! Great presentation! Great engagement! The whole workshop was engaging and impactful.
