In the age of AI, how can we still be creative?

It’s true, AI is THE disruption on everyone’s mind — teams in every industry wonder if they are safe from job extinction, while leaders explore how AI will generate and save money. In the midst of programming, automation, and data points, the art of human creativity (using brains and emotions) is still the key to innovation.

Scott’s talk ISN’T about AI expertise, it IS using a proven creativity method (with other humans or in conjunction with AI) that he used to make The Onion a multi-million dollar company. Scott is a creative catalyst who used a process that leads to constant innovation, improvisation, and adaptability.

While The Onion may be all humor, it is a serious business that has traveled through highways of disruption (from the fall of print media to the rise of the internet, and more). The future of work has always been here. Everything is changing around us — the way we work, interact, and accomplish anything.

Creativity is how The Onion survived and thrived amid a market crash, digital transition, a hybrid office, and increased stealth competition. Scott’s talk provides attendees a clear method that teams and leaders can use while reminding them of their vital role in innovation.


Scott is the hilarious founder of,

 #1 New York Times bestselling author, and award-winning speaker.

He takes audiences through “The Onion Way”, three foundational principles he developed to grow a small college newspaper run out of a dorm room into a multi-million dollar brand recognized the world over with tens of millions of loyal social media followers.

Scott walks you through finding your North Star, pursuing it with passion, and inspiring your team to do the same. This simple framework spurred The Onion to take bold risks, and it compels audiences to innovate in their own companies, which we need to confront the challenges we all face in business today: The future of work, AI, supply chain problems, the war for talent, and so many others.

In what Scott calls the “Love Economy,” companies that succeed big today are the ones people fall in love with. Understanding this paradigm not only attracts and keeps customers, it frees teams to do their best work, be more creative, and form a culture that can weather any storm and continues to innovate.

And at Scott’s talks, everyone has fun, walking away with not just actionable takeaways but tears of laughter.
