Masters of Innovation: The Nottingham Spirk Story

Cleveland-based business innovation firm Nottingham Spirk has nearly 1,000 patents that they have assigned to their clients/partners, all part of some of the most ubiquitous products in American life--the Crest Spin Brush, the Dirt Devil vacuum, the Swiffer SweeperVac, and the Troy-Bilt FLEX. And they've been doing all of that design in their Cleveland headquarters.

Join us to kick off the 2016 Business Leaders Series with a cross-generational conversation about innovation with "the most successful inventors you've never heard of," Nottingham Spirk co-founder John Nottingham and his son, designer Bill Nottingham.

This conversation will be moderated by WCPN Morning Edition host/producer Rick Jackson.
