“Extremely helpful in confidence building.”

First year Landscape Architecture student, UNSW

“This was a great process...being able to hear from peers about bad or nervous habits without being judged.”

First year Landscape Architecture student, UNSW

“Saneia's lecture, 'Me and My Design', provided valuable insight into the world of design and communication within the design process. Saneia quickly established a connection with her audience of first year students as she shared her own personal experiences of presenting to a group, and followed up with key communication principles to help students prepare for their own design presentations. An engaging and interactive lecture which left students feeling inspired and better equipped for challenges ahead.”

Laura Pyne, First year Course Convenor, Landscape Architecture Program UNSW

“Ease of communication comes naturally with Saneia. Her calm, reflective and thorough approach makes her easy to understand and accessible by the wider audience beyond the design professional. Saneia's 360-degree approach makes her a clear and effortless communicator, both verbally and graphically.”
