About the Show

Design is ascendant, and today we will celebrate it by talking with Dr. Larry Thompson, president of Ringling School of Art and Design. Larry is staging the Sarasota International Design Summit October 9-11. Prior to coming to Ringling, Larry was the first president and CEO of the Flint Cultural Center located in Flint, Michigan, and served as the director and CEO for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

Also with us is Dilip Soman, marketing professor at the Rotman School of Management in Toronto, who is using his skills to influence better public behavior. A world-renowned researcher in behavioral economics and marketing, Dilip joined Rotman in 2003 after teaching at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
