On September 25, 2019, OSPE and SpinMaster hosted a panel discussion and networking event on innovation, creativity, and the future of engineering in order to explore the duality of specialized engineering design, the importance of safety, and the need for engineers to integrate creativity into their work in order to remain competitive.

Traditionally, engineers have not been thought of as creative professionals. This is a title often reserved for other professions, even though engineers are described as “problem solvers” which can require a significant degree of creativity.

The event began with a demonstration of two of SpinMaster’s highly innovative creations the Air Hogs--Supernova, Gravity Defying Gesture-Controlled Flying Orb, and Upriser Ducati, Remote Self-Balancing Authentic Panigale V4 S Motorcycle followed by a lively panel discussion led by moderator Ryan Tremblay, Vice President of Sales at The Matrx. The conversation focused on expectations that engineers have from their workplaces, and the changes that need to happen to ensure that engineers feel valued, respected, and truly able to exercise creative thinking at work.

Panelists included:

  • Isi Caulder, Patent Lawyer and Partner at Bereskin & Parr LLP
  • Dr. Tibor Turi, Ph.D., P.Eng., President, Ontario Society of Professional Engineers
  • Hamid Hashemi, P.Eng., Director, Engineering Innovation, Spin-Master Ltd.
  • Emanuel Corthay, P.Eng., Senior Product Manager - Cisco Cloud and UC Managed Services, Allstream
