What clients, colleagues, staff and students have to say
I have known Relmi for 7 years and worked together with her and her team at many occasions. Relmi is a true design leader who always goes above and beyond to get just the right creative result in an agile manner. She’s a reliable and thoughtful designer with a positive and enthusiastic attitude. She also has a high ability in strategic and commercial thinking which she has demonstrated over many years by developing the About My Brain brand from the bottom up and getting the business and developing the team to where it’s at today. Relmi is an inspiration and her skillset is multi-faceted and I’m very confident that she can tackle any challenge that comes her way. I am honoured to endorse her for any role she wants to apply for.

Smart, professional and a natural leader are a few words I would use to describe Relmi. I first met her as one of my students when I was teaching and a director at Billy Blue. She was always very switched on and forward-thinking. I have also had the privilege of working alongside her on projects, as well as under her in the About My Brain Institute. Relmi is an asset to anything she is part of! She is an absolute delight to work with!

Thinking of a creative person – an image conjures up, thinking about an administration person, a second image probably conjures up. Often, they are two distinctly separate characters and what they offer can often be polar opposites. When you meet and work with Relmi, you have the pleasure of being in the company of one beautiful, caring character that offers both skillsets highly tuned. It is such a rare delight to be enshrouded by her creativity in the collateral used in the business of About My Brain and to also be taken care of by her fiercely capable administration in one’s engagement with About My Brain. Must admit, the ever-evolving content delivered by her brilliant mother (Silvia Damiano) keeps me coming back for more like a moth to the flame. It is how Relmi presents that content that is the enchanted siren’s song. This is an engagement you are going to remember with great pleasure – enjoy.

I met Relmi Damiano during my trip and certification to Sydney in the i4 Neuroleader Model, model of unique Neuroliderazgo developed by Silvia Damiano and I was surprised by her excellent skills for an event to go perfectly. During this training everything was perfect and very careful to the smallest details. In addition to being a great hostess and with an excellent education. She is able to manage and create a trusted team especially with millennials. She is incredible as a leader for them, inspiring a lot of security and confidence and guiding them within the certification to improve their personal development. In addition, she is a person interested in his own well-being and is consistent with his values ​​within the company About My Brian. On the other hand, she is very innovative in her projects, managing together with Silvia Damiano and her team the exclusive global documentary Make Me A Leader, totally successful, which has so far achieved up to 6 international awards. Meeting Relmi Damiano is a great gift and being able to collaborate with her and her team is rewarding and I am delighted to grow and learn together in many projects.

It’s rare to come across someone with both the creativity and technical savviness that Relmi possesses. I had the pleasure of working under her as an intern at About my Brain Institute for a couple months. She is kind and thoughtful both personally and professionally. I really appreciated how clear she was in communicating her expectations whenever assigning tasks, making it easy to work efficiently. What stands out to me above all about Relmi is her ability to operate skillfully in a wide variety of areas ranging from graphic design to strategic marketing and higher-level business management, to name a few. I was struck by how effectively she prioritizes her many different demands in order to drive the business forward. Relmi is also a fantastic cook; if she ever offers you lunch, I’d definitely recommend taking her up on it!

If I could borrow Relmi's brain for a day I'd probably catapult my business success. I have watched Relmi at work and she has a rare balance of exceptional creativity and design coupled with logic and attention to detail. This results in Relmi delivering products and services that are not only highly visually appealing but also highly functional. Relmi is dedicated, professional, thorough and also fun to work with. Oh and a brilliant cook (I've had the pleasure of tasting her brain-friendly gastronomic delights).

Relmi is that exquisite mix of phenomenal creativity, the most modern ability to use technology and social messaging, and a brain that really knows how to pull things together--making the complex simple, and the simple most compelling. Her management of the business -- and her extreme creativity in all the work she does on web and in graphic design is so modern and elegant. I love it -- and it really does make neuroscience accessible to all of us -- through the graphics, the art, the interaction she can make happen. She is the consummate integration of imagination, intuition and inspiration!!!

Her work is beautiful from a design perspective and a usability perspective. Relmi is also an absolute delight to partner with and I am always in awe of what she can teach me. If only I could duplicate her and have her on my actual team - but I feel so lucky to be able to work so closely with her and the wonderful team at AMBI.If you are not working with Relmi or AMBI - you really need to be, mind blowing stuff!

I worked closely with Relmi when undertaking my i4 Neuroleadership Practitioner Certification. Relmi is co-founder of the About My Brain Institute, and despite her relatively few years in the workforce, working with Relmi is like working with someone who has insight and wisdom of 20 years plus! Her passion, her ability to communicate and to present, and the quality and innovation of some exciting new products she is about to launch is testament to her amazing talent.

Relmi Damiano, as a friend, colleague and lecturer has inspired my work. She has helped my discover some of my own potential which I do not say lightly. Leading a team through a project in 'About My Brain' along with opening up some valuable connections and rare experiences to myself and my partners. Her problem solving and unique understanding for the Design industry and Neuroscience has given her solid respect that I will take into consideration. I Recommend Relmi Damiano and look forward to her future work.

Relmi is a talented professional with a rare combination of technical design skills and thoughtful leadership converging naturally into a steady stream of effective work. Her continuous determination in being on the digital forefront and putting herself "out there" to get things done innovatively have seen her turn into reality significant successful endeavours, such as the two editions of the Brain Art Exhibition (the last of which I had the privilege to participate) and for that I can soundly recommend her.

Relmi has a passionate and energetic approach to teaching and initiative development. Lots of talent and drive! I have known Relmi for four years as both student and now industry peer. She is a bright and insightful woman who possesses the characteristics to succeed in both her design ambitions and now those in the field of management. I was Relmi's lecturer for several classes during her time studying her undergraduate degree at Billy Blue. Relmi's qualities can be summarised as a formidable combination of design talent and razor sharp personal and project organisational skills. Relmi's abilities led me to appoint her as project manager for a major client project in her final year at the college. Relmi was responsible for leading a team of young designers to deliver a series of online campaign products with all the attendant demands a professional scenario would present. The project stakes were high and very demanding. Relmi's dedication and commitment to the project resulted in a measurable successful outcome. I consider Relmi to be one of the very best graduates I have had the pleasure to mentor, her aptitude and skills are self evident.

I had the good fortune of having Relmi as one of my students over a 2-year period at Billy Blue and she never failed to impress me. Relmi is not only a passionate designer, but she is a driven, organized and dedicated hard working designer. Her design ideas are always fresh and original and she weighs criticism well using it as a means to take her outstanding work even further still. On top of all of that, Relmi is a wonderful personality to work with. I only ever remember seeing a smile on her face. It was clear that all of her fellow students felt the same way too, with many of them asking for her help. I would have no hesitation in recommending Relmi to anyone as a valuable asset to his or her company or project.

Mark O'Dwyer
Academic Year Coordinator - Billy Blue College of Design.
I highly recommend Relmi Damiano for her design and marketing skills. The Brain Art Exhibition and Unconference in March 2011 was a huge success, due to Relmi's expertise. I attended the Opening night, Awards night and delivered one of the conference sessions. I was impressed by the obvious planning and promotion of the event. Having over 1000 people at each of the Opening and Awards nights, shows that Relmi's marketing had a great impact on attendance. The marketing material was professional and eye catching. Her use of social media was very appropriate for the target market. I have no hesitation in recommending Relmi for future work in this field and I am very happy to act as a verbal reference for her.

I found that Relmi's work is very different to the norm. She has this unique ability to make a fantastic visual statement. Her ability to perceive the overt and covert messaging is distinctive. Relmi's work is for those who want to take the lead not follow. "Subtly Vibrant" is the best way to describe Relmi's creations. I found my client group enthralled with her graphics and it was easy to bring them 'into the room" when her graphics were used in key note speaking.
