The Idea Collective is an idea incubator, talent hub and networking epicenter for thought leaders, change makers, and social influencers seeking to create the greatest human impact possible.
We are a high-vibe team of individuals from various backgrounds with one common theme: we’re all driven by impact.
We believe that speaking is the most efficient catalyst for creating positive change and transforming the world. That’s why we spend our time turning people with world changing ideas into thought leaders that reach a global audience.
Chief Empowerment Officer
“I expand in abundance, success, and love everyday as I inspire those around me to do the same.” This is from one of my favorite books, ’The Big Leap’ by Gay Hendricks. I highly suggest it for people experiencing big growth in their lives. I got hooked on making impact when I was a firefighter in my early 20s. From there it was a natural expansion to dive into the impact space even further. I did my first TEDx talk in 2011 that led to starting a fundraising company that funded 500 schools and libraries in 14 developing countries, then an impact travel company that built 150 homes for families in Latin America. All of that impact spawned from my first TEDx talk, which led me to dreaming of scaling impact even further by getting other people on powerful stages so they can share their message too. I love seeing people go from simply having an idea, to positively impacting millions of people. My whole day is spent amplifying beautiful messages throughout the world. This isn’t work… it’s play… I designed this company to be everything I could hope for in business and life. I work with super smart people, I surf once or twice a day, I talk to inspiring people all day and help them get their brilliant ideas in front of millions of people, and we all have a blast doing it. If I wasn’t “at the office”, I would be knocking on the door to get let back in, because it’s exactly where I want to be.

Lead Speaker Concierge
Lindsay’s past projects include organizing and executing teacher-training volunteer trips to Bhutan, and hosting a Women’s Empowerment class in Northern India for three months. She was drawn to the work happening at The Idea Collective because she loves helping people reach their goals and live their ideal lives. When Lindsay’s not at work, you can find her scuba diving or with her nose in a book. She lives by the principal of collecting memories, not things (unless those things are really good books).
