Inspiration in seven minutes

Since 2012, SOFII has been running its flagship event I Wish I'd Thought of That (or IWITOT for short). The format is simple: each speaker has seven minutes to share a fundraising idea that is good they wish they'd thought of it. We've taken IWITOT to Toronto and Baltimore and held a London event in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018. Each time it gets better and better, with great ideas exchanged, lots of fun and more inspiration than you could shake a collection box at.

And as this is SOFII, we're keen to share these ideas with our readers around the world, especially those who couldn't make it to one of the events. Here are collated some of the presentations from over the years. Which one(s) will set your synapses firing?
