Lau was an incredible teacher who encouraged the class, always bringing cutting-edge content and teachings. I was lucky to keep in touch and follow his professional development in other areas, always being a reference in the sector.

The first time I met Lau was unforgettable. I was studying Business and Architecture at the same time at two different faculties, kind of lost, not knowing what to do. I went to a workshop of a "Design Thinking" that I had never heard of. I was amazed. And since then the name Yamazaki has not left my head. Lau was also present in two other turning points in my life: he accepted to be part of the board, as a guest professor, of my Postgraduate TCC at UFBA (the topic was about Design Thinking lol). And the other moment is now: living abroad, lost again, I sought him out to learn more, learn about UX. Lau is my mentor. Whenever I want to take a turn, a change, refresh my studies, it's he I remember.
