Attendees of the FX Talks 2017 share their thoughts on the programme.
Truly brilliant, as I knew it would be. You should be proud! If continued, they complement the magazine beautifully. Wonderful speakers and 15 minutes slots were engaging, punchy and entertaining without becoming a slog to keep up with. I loved Monty, he was mesmerizing…and his message resonated, I think as designers we are under so much pressure to get it right all the time…our clients don’t pay us to make mistakes. Heartening words and I for one got a lot from the fact is it’s ok to make a mistake and learn from it. I am looking forward to the next one already.

You nailed it! Well done! Loved the diversity, I never thought I would be inspired by a horse whisperer!

I felt compelled to send you a note to extend my thanks and congratulate you on a most wonderful inaugural FX Talks. The speakers were top notch and truly inspirational – to great effect, as at 10.35 this is the first email I have sent. After spending the earlier part of the morning sketching away, embracing Tim’s (Hunkin’s) passionate plea for us to move away from our screens. Congratulations again.
- Angela Bardino, Grimshaw, Head of Interior Design
It was a great new event and something we are proud to support. Congratulations.

Thank you for the brilliant inaugural FX Talks, they were so varied yet all so informative and inspiring. I remember when we last met that the talks were just getting off the ground and that you had broached the idea to Monty to speak to a crowd of designers! Thanks again.

Wow, what a brilliant evening. Inspiring, thought provoking, humorous and humbling in equal measure. Well done for putting on such a great event, everyone I spoke to had exactly the same thought... You have a responsibility to do it again and again and again! It’s simply too good not to. Once again, stunning evening, well done, a triumph!
- Craig Frost, Sales Director, Interface
