“For the formation of a decolonial group at our university, we requested Angelo as a consultant. Thanks to his efficient, highly professional approach and a preparation perfectly tailored to our needs, we were able to complete the process well ahead of our schedule. In addition, Angelo's pleasant way of working ensures that long workshops are never boring“

“We are of the opinion that all educators need a racism-critical training in order to work more sensitively with children. In this context we invited Angelo. We learned a lot of new things and were able to answer questions about sensitive language use, among other things. His way of explaining things was extremely helpful and since we unfortunately had too little time, we definitely want to invite him again.

"Angelo's presentation at the Goethe-Institut's 24-hour worldwide virtual conference for German teachers GETVICO24 made a very important and impulse-giving contribution. The professional approach and preparation of the topic as well as Angelo's expertise offered the audience an action-oriented and sustainable access to be able to perceive racist structures and to actively contribute to its intervention and prevention."
