Since its debut on December 17, 1989, The Simpsons has broadcast more than 600 episodes, and was named by Time as “The greatest TV show of the 20th century.” It has won dozens of awards, including 31 Primetime Emmy Awards, 30 Annie Awards and a Peabody Award. Joel Cohen has been a key part of the show’s success. A graduate of the University of Alberta (B.Sc.) and York University (M.B.A.), he found success in the corporate world before making a completely illogical career move into comedy writing. Cohen’s experience as both a “creative” and a “suit” has not only left him with a puzzling resume, it also gives him a unique perspective to discuss innovation and its place in business. In his fascinating and wonderfully humorous presentation, he provides vibrant stories and key lessons we can take away from the show’s culture of innovation.
