Innovation Speaker Tom Wujec: Kindergarteners Outperforming MBAs
 
05:52
Innovation Speaker Tom Wujec's Bio and Speech Topics: http://www.thelavinagency.com/speaker-tom-wujec.html Tom Wujec's "Marshmallow Challenge" is a design experiment that reveals deep lessons about teamwork, collaboration and project management. It sounds simple - teams try to build the tallest freestanding structure they can out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1 yard of tape, 1 yard of string and a marshmallow. What makes it difficult is the need for teams to organize, prototype and build the structure in the short time frame. The results are astounding - children tend to outperform MBA students, due to their ability to redesign on the fly rather than plan a rigid structure and execute, even if the structure is doomed for failure.

30 Rock Actor Maulik Pancholy Talks About His Cultural Heritage (and Hollywood Diversity)

This is a heartfelt and very funny clip that shows off the deeply perceptive side of one of Hollywood's best young comic actors. Maulik Pancholy stars on 30 Rock and Weeds and has appeared on various shows, including Law and Order and the Sopranos. Occasionally, he also gives keynotes at universities. Using his own career, he shows audiences just how far Hollywood has come in embracing diverse characters and story lines. How much has changed since his early days, when he was asked, constantly, to "do the accent." And what has caused this positive shift in the entertainment industry?

How the Centre for Social Innovation Works: Tonya Surman
 
03:27
The Centre for Social Innovation is an experimental 5,000 square foot shared workspace in downtown Toronto—the first of its kind in the world—that contains an ecosystem of nearly 200 charities, not-for-profits, and social purpose business. Tonya Surman, its co-founder, explains the buildings origins and growth and discusses how the CSI building allows for social collaboration between varied groups. On the practical side, because of its shared infrastructure, it frees up a lot of brain space: as Surman points out, the executive director of a non-profit should not be wasting his time fixing a photocopier.
