Welcome to my personal professional corner of the world wide web.

What people say about my work

Facilitation And Coaching
Iva guided the team through all the steps that make a successful remote design sprint: Onboarding us, providing examples, finding ways to unstuck us when needed, and making the full sprint engaging and fun.

Facilitation And Coaching
Iva is a creative genius who can transform how people work. I am lucky to be a beneficiary of her skills. She demonstrates patience like no other as she helps people understand and experience the importance of anchoring their work with a customer-centric and empathetic approach.

Iva possesses a combination of mastery, empathy, perception, and professional and personal courage beyond anything I have ever witnessed in my 20+ year career.

Facilitation And Coaching
Iva constantly amazed me in her ability to facilitate an intense 8-hour design workshop and within 4-6 hours be able to create tangible results from the feedback gathered at the workshop.

Iva is the best design and innovation program conceptualizer, leader, and facilitator that I have had the privilege of working with.

Strategic design
Focusing on where you could be and not where you are now, and getting you there is a particular strength of Iva's. She brings fresh and dynamic thinking to projects which result in outcomes that were not predicted at the outset, are fresh, and actionable.

Director, APAC Professional Learning at CFA Institute

Facilitation And Coaching
It isn't an overstatement by saying that Iva completely changed my life and how I look at work. Throughout the two years of extensively working and being supported by Iva, I now incorporate design thinking methodologies in every project.

Iva helped us review our process and find a way to optimize it. She worked with every individual team member. She was not just our consultant but also a team psychologist.

Iva makes effort to know the business, people and processes before bringing in the appropriate design thinking tools. Her workshops help to make people get a 360 degree view of the scenario and creatively support solutions.
