Marilyn Barefoot: Brainstorming the Big Idea.


Every great team has a sparkplug, a unique energy source, an active ingredient… someone who helps to give the team a personality.


For Barefoot Brainstorming, that someone is Marilyn Barefoot. Classically trained in tier one companies like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, General Mills, Nike and Microsoft, Marilyn combines a wickedly smart and analytical brain with an intuitive gut.


A summa cum laude graduate from major advertising agencies like Vickers & Benson, Bozell Palmer Bonner, Cossette Communications and BBDO, Marilyn is obsessive about originality.


A three time nominee for the Rotman Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, Marilyn Barefoot is also a much sought after speaker.


A hands-on leader, Marilyn’s high-energy brainstorming sessions (trademarked as BigStorming®) lead to powerful results.


Marilyn is the one who inspires teams to look at every project as an opportunity to be original!
