About Us


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

IdeaSpies is an ideas platform. Its purpose is to encourage innovation by celebrating the many inspiring ideas around us.

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

The idea for this site was born on a trip to Canada in 2015 with a friend, Dr Sabra Brock, when a guide said ‘Promote what you love, rather than bash what you hate’. There are now over 1,000 inspiring ideas, happening now, posted on IdeaSpies, shown by category: artistic, dining, healthcare, NDIS, NFP and wellbeing.

You can easily search the ideas by category and word, share and rate them. The platform shows the most popular as well as the most recent ideas.

You can become an Idea Spy by registering. You can then post ideas you see, as well as comment on ideas you love. When you have posted an idea you can add “Idea Spy” to your bios including on LinkedIn. You’ll also receive the IdeaSpies Weekly. All for FREE!

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

IdeaSpies was recognised as a top 100 Cool Company last year

An endorsement

We posted our idea on IdeaSpies when we had brought a brand new technology to help women with hairloss. After looking at IdeaSpies our entire team became galvanised and even those with no social marketing knowledge, such as our scientists and admin team, got right behind it. It was exciting to see them getting creative in their postings and see the shares on the IdeaSpies site, plus in the different platforms we were posting. The IdeaSpies concept is completely unique, it gets your team involved plus you get exposure you would not otherwise have. The promotional opportunity is particularly exciting as IdeaSpies is active on multiple social platforms such as twitter, facebook, instagram and linkedin. Get involved, it’s fun and it is well worth it if you want your business promoted on different platforms.
