Using Keras in Dataiku throws error

I'm using the dataiku VM and have installed Keras and Tensorflow in the dataiku python environment.

I can create a code notebook in the Lab and use the code and data from the following guide and it works

However if I try to use the exact same code within a "Custom Python Model" under Analysis, I always get the error 

Training Failed… Sorry

global name 'Sequential' is not defined

Re: Using Keras in Dataiku throws error
It looks like you're missing some imports - in this case Sequential

Re: Using Keras in Dataiku throws error
Unfortunately not. It has the exact same code between the notebook and the custom module. ie. they both include "from keras.models import Sequential"

It can run the code "model = Sequential()" directly in the custom python module without issues, so I think its something to do with the fact that the baseline_module() method which calls Sequential() is passed as a parameter in the line "estimator = KerasClassifier(build_fn=baseline_model, ..." and then attempted to be executed in a different space...
