Testimonials

 

«Céline gave a 40 min talk (plus a Q&A session) here at the BBC on «Building inclusivity into the new Carbon programming language».
Céline was a delight to work with, was utterly professional and engaging throughout the process. Her talk was very well-received both within the software development community and the wider BBC staff, appealing to folk interested in technology as well as those keen to build more inclusive communities.
If you are looking to create an inclusive environment, then you should definitely speak to Céline. Her advice is pure gold.»
