What people are saying about IORG

Join the conversation!

IORG  has done a tremendous job to raise awareness as well as provide well researched, practical resources to address the complex issues of information overload.  They were way ahead of the game and continue to lead in this arena.

Anne McGhee-Stinson Managing Partner & Director of Practice, Effective Edge

IORG’s work is extremely relevant and impactful in an age when people regularly suffer from information overload. I regularly use their work to get the latest high-level thinking on information overload.

Dr. Lawrence Ampofo Director & Founder, Digital Mindfulness

In that sense, IORG was, for me, a “canary in the coal mine”, an advance indicator showing the imminence of a dangerous problem.
