About Us


Lynn and Sabra at High Tea- Empress Hotel, Victoria, Canada

IdeaSpies is an ideas platform. Its purpose is to encourage innovation by focusing on noticing the clever ideas around us.

Idea Spies are observant people who care about the world and make it better by sharing clever ideas happening around them.

The idea for this site was born on a trip to Canada in 2015. My friend Dr Sabra Brock and I were traveling together when a guide shared with us his favourite quote: ‘Promote what you love, rather than bash what you hate’. Stimulated by this idea we thought it would be positive to record and share the clever ideas we were seeing, and give you the opportunity to do so as well.

The ideas that are posted here are inspiring, novel, sound bites. They’re shown by category: artistic, dining, healthcare, NDIS, NFP and wellbeing.

Please rate them, the site shows the most popular as well as the most recent.

You can become an Idea Spy yourself.  Join to post ideas you see, as well as comment on ideas you love. You’ll also receive the IdeaSpies Weekly. All for FREE!

Our ideas support NFP’s and we’re a proud member of Pledge 1%.

Feedback and ideas are welcome!
