About the Presenters

Fiona Triaca

Co-Founder and Managing Director,
Naked Ambition

Fiona believes in the habits of innovation. As co-founder of Naked Ambition she is passionate about designing human-centered solutions that deliver meaningful outcomes for employees and she is fortunate to be able to see first-hand every day the powerful changes that occur when people are given the right tools for creativity.

Drawing on her cross-industry knowledge in London’s financial markets, corporate strategy and an early career in creative, she founded Naked Ambition in 2013 with a mission to bring the entrepreneurial spirit to the enterprise and change companies from within. Not a classically trained designer, Fiona came at Design Thinking through business and is now fortunate to design for clients and students every day.
