“Kamilla is truly a driving force. She gets stuff done and right people at the table. Kamilla is such a joy to work with and also to hang around – always positive, productive, creative and fun. Almost feels like she’s not afraid of anything.”

Jenni Pääskysaari, TV producer
Board member Global Dignity Girls & Boys ry

“I have worked with Kamilla as a panellist at Dignity in Finance event at Nasdaq and as a sponsor for #InsideOutHelsinki youth art exhibit in Helsinki. Rarely have I seen a networked person like her with relatively short time in Finland. She deeply cares for value-add in each event and for her team, fills the room with great energy and brings out the best in people, on stage and among the audience. I admire Kamilla for her change-making work and capacity to building links between students, companies and the community. All that she does, she does with her heart. Kamilla has my warmest recommendations.”
