Georgia Van Cuylenburg, Founder of Arts Bridging the Gap

"Working with Ronnell and Growing Greatness has been a wonderful experience for me and my whole team. I am so grateful for his incredible communication, accountability, and ability to deliver on everything he set forth to do with and for us. Ronnell has gone above and beyond with site visit and follow-ups that I hadn't even expected of him. He also does everything with a smile and a sense of fun that was the perfect fit for our team. I am constantly amazed by his passion for and commitment to perfection with all paperwork, permits and red tape. I feel everyone needs a Ronnell in their life!"

CPP Design Student, Racial Equity and Inclusion in Design Lecture

"Great lecture! I love how you connected everything together on all the issues following the discrimination and inequality in the country we face. & how we can contribute to making it better place through design. Always knew the politics and social pressure from the corrupt system but never connected how much our designs can make such a positive impact. You’re a great speaker and I aspire to be as such!" 

CPP Design Student, Racial Equity and Inclusion in Design Lecture
