I briefly presented FuelBox Team to my financial team before our regular meeting. They started asking each other questions from the box and when I said we had to move on to our planned meeting agenda, they kept saying: “Just one more card, just one more question!”.
I had never seen a reaction like it!
When we read out one of the questions: “What can we do today to improve our business immediately?”, one of the most junior team members present came up with a great idea that we immediately added to our process. That one change will pay for all the FuelBoxes we could ever buy!

In Telia Company innovation is key for our future success! For this to happen we need to enable a culture for Innovation by making our 21000 employees to work together and cross functional. Our tailored FuelBox really gave our Purple Lunch concept added value in our pilot in Norway. Colleagues who never met before, get straight into relevant and fun conversation topics, where they learn more about each other, and from each other! We find this crucial for innovation to happen! Because we believe that innovation starts with relations.

We have used the FuelBox as a meeting starter in leadership meetings and it has a positive impact on the meeting climate.
We have used it in different arenas and settings:
Management meetings, team meetings with consultants, appraisals, coachings and WorkShop with and without customer.
We’ve happily mixed some cards from FuelBox FRIENDS, TEAM and LEADERSHIP depending on what setting this has been used in.
We share thoughts, experiences, knowledge and expertise with other executives, colleagues, employees / consultants, which makes us think it developes us as a company and individually.
There is no doubt that it helps to build and strengthen relationships, as well as gain new insights that benefits one self, colleagues and Capgemini.

FuelBox on the office Christmas Dinner worked excellent! When did you last ask a colleague what three things he hopes to experience before he dies? Or the CEO about how he would spend the day if he could be a woman for 24 hours? With exciting discussions and great engagement on topics beyond the usual, we learned more about each other as humans, not just colleagues. I highly recommend this to any company!

I recently purchased your FuelBox TEAM and INNOVATION boxes for a ‘Think outside the square’ business brainstorming session. I just wanted to pass on my thanks and also some feedback on how my session ran with the help of FuelBox.
Myself and the management team prior to this day selected some really good questions from both FuelBoxes that really challenged the team to think about how they could innovate and do business with our customers differently. We really wanted them to come up with fresh new ideas so we specifically chose questions that would allow our team to think freely and challenge the status quo. We made sure the team felt assured that no suggestion would be seen as a bad suggestion. Every suggestion no matter how silly it sounded would be seriously considered.
I placed these selected FuelBox question cards at the top of individual pieces of butchers paper and scattered them around the room. I then asked each group of 3 to rotate around the butchers papers and answer each of the questions.
We spent a good 40mins doing this activity and then together as a team we discussed all the answers and chose the best suggestions that we could implement into our business plans.
We came up with at least 5 new business activities and leveraging opportunities that we made a commitment to implement into our business plans that we thought would separate us from our competitors in our industry. The team found this activity really helpful. They all thought the questions were excellent and worded in a way which really challenged them to think differently.
This activity with the help of the FuelBox questions taught me and my team that sometimes all we need are for the right questions to be asked, so we can come up with new solutions to get around perceived barriers within our businesses.
I would highly recommend FuelBox for any team business brainstorming sessions. I know my business unit definitely found the money we spent on FuelBox worthwhile and valuable. We will definitely be making FuelBox a permanent tool at all our business planning sessions in future.

In a busy job it can be challenging to create arenas where we can come together, to strengthen team connections and to share the knowledge and experience of a team. FuelBox has become this arena for many of us, and we use the boxes in different ways in both management teams and other teams to increase focus on sharing, learning, team spirit and having fun. This creates, among other things, greater trust and understanding in teams.
I recommend using Fuel It to implement FuelBox in an organisation. You do not fully understand the effect of the box before you get started, so it’s important to have a good introduction to why and how it can be used. This was important for us to get people involved, create engagement and not least to find possible venues and put the use into our calendar.
As speakers, I experienced that Fuel It have extensive knowledge combined with great experience in the corporate market. Professional and charming! A lot of people have also bought the boxes privately! I strongly recommend FuelBox, a great product.

We are a large department with several teams with a broad range of responsibilities. In our monthly department meetings we have introduced 15-20 minutes of FuelBoxing with the Team box at the end of each meeting. We divide into smaller groups that vary from time to time.
After we began with this, we have become better acquainted with each other, gained a better understanding of what the individual teams are working on and how we can better utilize synergies across teams.
FuelBox is one of the activities everyone agrees we SHOULD start all of our meetings with.
