Visual ice breakers for personal and team development

Testimonials

The testimonials below are from our customers many of which are YPO-WPO (Young Presidents Organization) members and spouses. Forum refers to small groups of 8-12 members who meet on a monthly basis to discuss business, family and personal issues in an atmosphere of confidentiality and openness. In a similar way ForumCards can be used by any group.

“I have not only used ForumCards with my forum, I have also used them at other YPO and non-YPO meetings and events. The words and images on every card are guaranteed to evoke some memory, emotion or story with everyone in the room. I highly recommend this effective tool to anyone trying to generate deeper sharing and more authentic bonds.”

Michael Bloch

President, MBB Holdings Inc, YPO-WPO International Forum Committee

“As the moderator of a ten year old Global Couples Forum, I introduced the ForumCards as a meeting starter at our annual retreat and it was so successful we used it the second day as well — the photos are colorful, imaginative and unique, and inspired our veteran members to express themselves with humor and sincerity — a great icebreaker I recommend highly.”

John Teeger

Founders Equity President, Member YPO-WPO

“I have found ForumCards to be a useful and powerful tool for opening up people for a creative and direct dialogue. The images help group members to reconnect with themselves and to remove inhibitions and mental constrains. In particular, I like to use them as a starter kit for building team cohesiveness and for fostering creativity and mental flow before brainstorming sessions.
In addition, they often make people smile and laugh. There is nothing like a good laughter to help people relax and open up.”

Gil Margalit

CEO, Vaica Medical

“I have used ForumCards with a big group (50+) and the spouses found the cards compelling and a great way to open dialogue, especially in a culturally mixed group.”

“I have worked with various groups, both Forums and in meetings, and have used ForumCards as communication starters and exercises. The cards are beautifully presented and the content has been a great catalyst for in-depth and meaningful sharing.”

Netti Brown

Director, Forum YPO-WPO

“I consider ForumCards as an essential part of my tool kit. Indeed I would not leave the house without them in my bag. They are a practical and useful tool for running a number of processes.”

Andro Danovan

YPO-WPO CFF

“I like ForumCards because, in line with current trends, they focus on strengths in a way that is both fun and revealing.¬†Forums enjoy working with the cards because they are quick and easy to use as communications starters. The pictures are beautiful and evocative.”

Estelle Doctor, Ph.D

YPO-WPO CFF

“As a teacher I can see many wonderful applications for using ForumCards as a way to engage pupils, stimulate group discussions and as a helpful prompt for written expression and creative writing exercises. I will definitely be using them again and as such I think they make an original and useful gift to share with friends and colleagues.”
