 Are we experiencing the inevitable decline of the American economy? Or the new normal in a technology-enabled global marketplace? CCAD has invited internationally renowned design thinking and management expert Roger Martin to share his thoughts with Columbus.

Best known in design circles for his book The Design of Business: Why Design Thinking Is the Next Competitive Advantage, Martin was named in 2010 as one of the 27 most influential designers in the world and in 2011 as the sixth top management thinker in the world. He is dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.

Martin's presentation kicks off the launch of the CCAD MindMarket, which comprises an art and design business incubator, a design lab, and a thought lab. Following the presentation at 8 p.m., everyone is invited to tour the MindMarket and stay for the idUS party in Design Studios on Broad. idUS is Columbus' citywide celebration of innovation and design. (The tours and party are free and open to the public).

Please note: online ticket purchasing is closed. There will be a limited number of tickets available for sale at the door.
