Bringing Out Brilliance
How to Facilitate Breakthrough Brainstorming Sessions
in Three Hours or Less
Here's the deal: You are one of the creatives in a high flying PR, Marketing, or Communications company and have been asked by one of your clients to lead an upcoming brainstorming session. That's the good news. The-not-so-good news? Even though you're an idea-generating machine, facilitating sessions that bring out brilliance in others is not your forte. And to raise the stakes even higher, your client wants more than just "ideas". Your client wants remarkable, actionable ideas and wants the session to be highly engaging, energizing, and worth their precious time. Get it? The heat is on, big time.
Enter Idea Champions. We can help.
A boutique, innovation consultancy headquartered in Woodstock, NY (yes, that Woodstock, we are one of the few companies in the world who train other companies how to facilitate brainstorming sessions. Yes, we've been known to give people fish, but we're way more interested in teaching people how to fish — not just in their own bathtub, but in the great sea of endless possibility.
And we can do it in a day if that's all the time you have.*

* ONE DAY, TWO DAYS, or THREE? Most of our clients are very busy. We get it. Which is why we now offer a one-day version of our Conducting Genius training. That being said, we encourage all of our clients to invest 2-3 days. When you think about how much revenue is at stake — for your organization and for your clients — an extra day or two of training is time well-spent. More tools. More techniques. More practice. More coaching. More skills. More confidence. More ability to facilitate breakthrough brainstorming sessions without frying.

Innovators are known for their ability to move forward. But sometimes, the best way to move forward is to retreat – especially when it's time to reinvent yourself. That's why Idea Champions is now offering 5-day immersive retreats in beautiful San Miguel de Allende. Reboot! Refresh! Renew!
Innovation is a team sport. Brilliant ideas go nowhere unless your people are aligned, collaborative, and team-oriented. That doesn't happen automatically, however. It takes intention, clarity, selflessness, and a new way of operating.
