A great way of looking at problems

“Jackie’s Idea Café is a great way of looking at problems and issues with new eyes. Having people from totally different industries or departments can mean a whole mindset difference. They can look at something from an angle you hadn’t even considered. Quite often a fresh perspective can point out solutions that were staring you in the face. Jackie manages things in a fun and productive way, bringing the group together and focusing the brainstorming into a more practical reality. She really makes you feel part of a revelatory process that can have impressive results to the way you view your business, and even more importantly, how your business is viewed by others.”

I always leave with ideas

“Jackie runs the Idea Café with her usual friendly, professional approach. The sessions are well structured, allowing each member the same length of time to air their problem / question, explore it and come to a conclusion. It has proved very useful as you are gaining views and ideas from all present. I always leave with ideas I want to develop further.”

Charlotte Emery, S.E.A Photography

I look forward to every month

“I just needed to write and let you know how much I have appreciated the last few ‘Idea Cafés’ I have attended. Before you introduced me to the concept I felt like a lone business owner struggling to do everything on my own, now I feel like a business owner with a great support system behind me. I look forward to every month when I will receive plenty of help and advice on the issue I had been struggling with. Thanks.”
