What have others said about the Masterclass…

I recently attended the Master class with Nicole from the Ideas Bodega and I was blown away by the amount of relevant information and productive tools that were provided. It was by far and way the most useful course I have attended and Nicole's passion and professionalism were undoubtedly major contributors to this experience. She has identified an important area in our market and has made herself an expert in the art of the brainstorm.

Director, powered Ignite at Nine Entertainment Co, Sydney

"Really valuable tools and techniques for creative facilitation, planning and brainstorming. It was a hugely beneficial process and I would highly recommend it to any organisation wishing to inject a fresh approach to their creative output."

Managing Director, One Green Bean, Sydney

The masterclass was both inspiring but also really practical too (where many other training courses fail), arming you with the best ways to get the most out of your and your team’s thinking. Nicole led the class superbly, using lots of different examples and experiences. Would recommend it for all agency folk; relevant for suits, creatives and planners alike.

Senior Planner, Ogilvy and Mather, Melbourne

Nicole ran a two-day Masterclass with incredible results. The team was thrilled with the workshop, with many claiming this to be one of the best they'd experienced. The impact has certainly been far-reaching across the business. On a professional level, I cannot recommend Nicole highly enough.

Client Services Director at Hill+Knowlton Strategies Australia

Learning the art of facilitation has been incredibly useful and revolutionised the way we brainstorm in the organisation.

Brand Strategist, Moon, Sydney

The workshop was very inspiring and gave us a great framework and guidance for future brainstorms.

Group Account Director, Ogilvy & Mather, Ho Chi Minh City

I use to run out of the office when we had a brainstorm! Now I really enjoy facilitating them and find them highly productive. Everyone is getting involved and the clients have been very impressed with our ideas.

Director of Brand Strategy, Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners, New York

As a designer I am expected to come up with great ideas as a matter of course. But, there are times when ideas ebb and ideas flow, so having a set of reliable and fun tools to fall back on is a great thing, and that is what Nicole gave me. The creative team that attended found the sessions very useful and definitely felt that they gained value and new learnings from the workshop. I felt that Nicole's presentation style, inventiveness and her ability to deal with the nature of our business showed a good deal of insight on how to get to the nuts and bolts of any challenge and instil creativity within people. Having been involved in idea generation, problem solving and innovation challenges myself I really felt I left the workshop refreshed and re-energised to tackle client briefs in new and different ways.

Creative Design Director, Hulsboch

The workshop was engaging and gave us different methodologies and tools that can be put to use as part of a creative brainstorm. I enjoyed the use of real examples. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who needs to generate new ideas or creative solutions for clients.

Account Director, Google, Sydney

We all thought we knew how to facilitate brainstorms but were really surprised by the new tools! The training was highly energetic, highly creative and extremely useful. We are using the tools in every brainstorm and generating fantastic ideas for our clients.

Director, Burson-Marsteller, Sydney
