Book club members act as focus group for startup
Members of Readers Ink, a book club in Sydney, offered to act as a focus group for Idea Spies to help refine the concept. They each have professional backgrounds related to innovation and their advice was very helpful- watch this space! Thanks to new Idea Spies- Christine Pitt, Janet Sayer, Rebecca (Bec) Murray, Jan Land, Babette Bensoussan and Clare Loewenthal.
