Like it is with so many events, we’ve had to put Innovation Day on “pause”. Our last in-person installment was in late 2019, but we still keep in touch with many of the past speakers. I recently caught up over Zoom with Dan Lerner (iD 2017) to check in on teaching at NYU during the pandemic, chatted with David Sax (iD 2019) when I stumbled upon his Toronto Life article about winter surfing on Lake Ontario, and had a long-overdue call with Nick Parish (iD Keynote 2013, 14, 15, 17) about leaving Contagious and working for the “Corporate Culture Consultancy” NOBL.IO. I have also had the chance to connect regularly with Jacie deHoop, Co-Founder of the Gist (iD 2019). The Gist has been successfully navigating the pandemic, has recently surpassed 150,000 subscribers and was recently written up in Forbes. Check out that article, and read up on how the Gist is Attacking Unconscious Bias in Sports Reporting.
