"Wow. Awesome. Amazing. Leyla is a synapse - with her energy, passion, knowledge and humour, she ignites every neuron in the audience, and frees people to think and design sustainably."
"Leyla did a super engaging talk at Made in Space that the audience really loved - she is a visionary, progressive thinker that in an optimistic and constructive way can address some of the big challenges we face as a human race and still leave a room uplifted and filled with hope."
"Leyla Acaroglu's keynote at SUSTpack2016 set the tone for the rest of the day on how can packaging be regenerative and have a central role in the fight against food waste, in educating the consumer and in changing behavior to a more environmentally conscious one. She was an outstanding speaker and brought great energy and content to open the day."
"Leyla Acaroglu is an amazing speaker, and her concept of using environmental folklore to simplify and explain complex systems is brilliant. She engages even the most cynical to her thought-provoking conclusion that design and innovation can lead to a more sustainable future.”
"It was a pleasure working with Leyla on our opening session for our 2017 Annual Summit. Drawing from Leyla's experience in working with groups we were able to be creative on how we structured the session engaging the audience in a participatory way whilst also sharing her insights and integrity of thinking about the role of design in systemic change. We look forward to continuing to work with her and the team on how circular design can create more regenerative and restorative systems in the world we create."
"Leyla's first visit to Chile, was in the frame of LAB4+, iconic event of innovation of the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Peru and Mexico). Her way of thinking makes the public very engaged and explores new ideas into internationalization of innovation"
