About Us

Chief and Deputy Chief IdeaSpies

We believe in sharing innovation to inspire action.

Idea Spies are observant people who care about the world and make it better by sharing clever ideas happening around them -see short intro video here 

The idea for this ideas platform was born on a trip to Canada in 2015 when a guide said ‘Promote what you love, rather than bash what you hate’.

There are now about 2.000 clever ideas, happening now, posted on IdeaSpies. 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.

If you register to become an Idea Spy you can also comment and add ideas as well as receive IdeaSpies Weekly.  

“The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed.” William Gibson. IdeaSpies is helping to even the distribution.

Mark Stanbridge, Ashurst Partner, said, “At each of our Boardroom Lunches one of our M+A lawyers presents ideas from IdeaSpies- they enjoy it, and it gives them an opportunity to present ideas they see on Idea Spies to leading directors in Australia.”


Maria Halasz, CEO Cellmid Limited, said  “We posted our idea on IdeaSpies when we had brought a brand new technology to help women with hair loss. 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.”

Sarah Davies, CEO  Philanthropy Australia said, “The IdeaSpies platform is such an exciting innovation. It is a terrific space for not-for-profits to share their clever ideas and inspire others to think about how they can make the world a better place.”

David Pring, Managing Partner Western Sydney, KPMG Australia said “IdeaSpies Enterprise was very well received by staff. It’s thought provoking and easy to use, with no training needed. In the early stages of the trial we made some suggestions which were immediately taken up to improve the platform.

“Staff saw the program as an opportunity to suggest ideas that could improve the way they work. In addition to specific ideas we saw themes coming from the ideas that have led to improvements.

“We believe that, as well as useful ideas and themes, we gained a benefit in improving staff engagement. We’re also very pleased that the winning ideas are attractive to clients and expected to generate extra revenue.”
