“One of the really cool things I get to do is work towards specific causes that we personally care about. In my case, that’s animal welfare, tech startups, and of course – mental health. The results worldwide from our proven design thinking methodology are remarkable. All these projects I got to do in less than 6 months. I’m here to tell you that the effort in our campaigns are 80% done online – from training, planning, until execution, that’s in person. Crazy, right? But totally doable.”
KL, writer, speaker, co-founder, and Makesense Manila ambassador
