Throughout the day I love listening to TED talks while I work. Recently I went to an independent TED event with a roster of incredible speakers. One of those speakers was Marty Avery. She is the Chief Catalyst at What If, a forward thinking consulting firm that asks the question “what if?” a lot while solving problems. That question got Marty far in her career and earned her numerous accolades. She is faculty at the Banff New Media Institute’s Interactive Projects Lab and the Canadian Film Center’s Media Lab.
