You just don’t get this in normal conversation. It needs a lot of creativity to come up with these new ideas – I am always inspired when I talk to them.
Director, International Research Lab
IFF has been like a treasure box. Every time I go there interesting things come out of the treasure box – and I never know what those things are going to be. When things are really difficult and we get stuck we go back to IFF to see how they can help us.
Director, Management Consultancy
IFF is one of the tools we can use to break out of the fear cycle.
Director, Regional Economic Development Agency
It is the stance of IFF that is most impressive. Contact with people who believe in human beings and possibility has been hugely powerful. I work in a local authority. It is a linear, rational world. It is about predictability and measurability. It is a risk-assessed, quality assured world. IFF brings a child like intensity, the wonder and the fun of exploration and discovery. It is so refreshing.
Community Services Director, Local Government
Thanks to the IFF's catalyst, we are now on a path to help the city. I have been going through ‘Ten Things to do in a Conceptual Emergency’ and the set of cards that the IFF gave us. They have been very useful in how I have been able to approach and negotiate during the last few months.
Director, INTACH, Varanasi, India
People are desperate for ideas. There’s an impasse in development thinking - people are doing more of the same, stuck in ruts and so on. IFF have challenged us to explore new directions.
City Director of Public Health
The IFF drive for us to be expansionist in our thinking, to be engaging, to understand the potential and be brave has worked. “How did you do this?” we are being asked. “This is so alive”.
Corporate Relations Manager, Multinational Corporation
I do not know whether you are coming up with the right answers, but you are certainly asking some really interesting and relevant questions. That’s crucial. Few others are. We need to keep in touch with this thinking.
I wish I could have stayed longer… IFF becomes more and more interesting.
Director of Policy, No 10 Downing Street, UK Government
Probably the most thought-provoking experience I’ve had since joining the company.
