I really enjoyed the speech given by University of Waterloo Dean’s Arts, Ken Coates, at last DesignCamp Waterloo back in March. It took me a while to get the video clip for speech, but it’s a great one to share. He only spoke for 10 mins. However, it was short and powerful. First he highlighted the impact of student-run events like DesignCamp Waterloo, which the university leadership team used as examples to describe the spirit of Waterloo. Second, Ken talked about the serious problem of "Innovation stickiness" Canada is facing and the 21 century economy is about digital media, digital design, digital enabled technologies.
