An insightful, charismatic and credible food futurologist who is able to move perspectives of her audiences via strong facts, reasoning and engaging style- that’s the sentence I would use to describe Dr. Morgaine as a speaker and professional. As a person she carries a creative spark that makes her a truly interesting and inspiring character. Having hired Dr. Morgaine for an ideation day to craft our strategic plan for the coming 3 years, she added tremendous value to the day via her key note address on the future of our category, active participation in the crafting of ideas and also judging of the final ideas presented.
