What Our Clients Say About Us
"Idea Champions is the firm I recommend for anything to do with innovation."
"You don't just teach creativity, you teach it creatively. In fact, you embody creativity. You live it. You are sowers of a wonderfully powerful seed that now has begun to germinate and revitalize our organization."
"I'd like to express my appreciation for the incredible success you initiated with our staff here at VH-1. You're great for business and that's the bottom line!"
"As a result of the Idea Champions' session, I now have the most highly motivated, self-driven, creative and fun team this division has seen in recent history."
"Several of the ideas we came up with in the Idea Champions session are being developed into concrete projects which are looking like very profitable opportunities. What is especially important, though, is the enthusiasm and energy level people still have as a result of the seminar."
"I really appreciate the insight, guidance and just plain hard work you put into our MTV brainstorming sessions. I want to particularly note how impressed we all were with Idea Champions' insight and understanding of our business and creative needs, as well as the varied and constructive techniques you used to take us through the creative process."
"After bringing in Idea Champions during my tenure with two companies and three major events, I am convinced of their versatility and power of their techniques to create organizational change. Not only do they produce results, but people have fun in the process."
"Thank you for sharing your passion for innovative excellence with the hundreds of product and marketing management professionals who have worked with you at the NYNEX Marketing Institute. Your enthusiasm is certainly contagious."
"Thanks for the outstanding work you did for the US Pharmaceuticals Division. We heard many comments from our sales reps and sales managers such as 'the best start to a sales meeting in 20 years.' You created a design that really facilitated adult learning. Thanks again for the partnership, hard work, and opportunity to produce a training event that added a great deal of value to my organization and ultimately, to our customers."
"Our organization has recently been through a major restructuring which has severely impacted the morale of our employees. Your programs were like an oasis in the desert creating a climate for people to rejuvenate and be creative, alive, and connected while being productive and having fun. Thank you for the drink of water!"
"Banking Innovation is a superb training for new employees. The training has been a big success in getting our younger population more creative and understanding that innovation is a team effort."
