“I loved Ian’s talk. Staying curious is especially important for the team here at Channel 4 as our remit demands that we champion alternative points of view and celebrate diversity. Ian’s talk was a great shot in the arm.” Harry Dromey, Channel 4
“The BBC is renowned for its outstanding reporting and compelling storytelling across its factual output. But in order to maintain its world-class reputation, it needs people like Ian to inspire reporters and producers. After attending one of Ian’s sessions, our colleagues go back to their department feeling refreshed, energised and full of new ideas. I highly recommend him”. James Harrod, TV training manager, BBC Academy
