Futurist Jack Uldrich

Following on the heels of his keynote presentation to business executives in Chennai, India, popular keynote speaker, renowned global futurist, technology forecaster and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich has been selected to deliver two keynote speeches this month. On March 13th, Uldrich will travel to Harrisburg to address the Pennsylvania chapter of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO); and on March 27th, he will be in Missouri to speak to the St. Louis chapter of the World Presidents’ Organization (WPO). For both groups, Uldrich will be speaking on “Why the Future Will Require Unlearning.”

The material presented in the two keynotes will be based on a combination of Uldrich's best-selling book, “Jump the Curve; 50 Essential Strategies to Help Your Company Stay Ahead of Emerging Technologies” and his latest book, "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future." The interactive speeches are designed to provide business leaders a solid and thought-provoking foundation upon which to continue creating their own future. An overview of some of Uldrich’s ideas can be found in this short video clip, Why the Future of Healthcare Will Require Unlearning, which Uldrich recently delivered to executives at United Healthcare.

Uldrich will also provide an overview of how technological change is upending long-standing business models and discuss why future trends will demand unlearning. Uldrich, who has been hailed as "America's Chief Unlearning Officer," will conclude his talk by reviewing the negative consequences of not embracing the concept of “unlearning.” Throughout his talk, he will use vivid analogies and memorable stories, drawn from a wide spectrum of industries, to ensure his message of unlearning "sticks" with his audience. A sample of some Uldrich’s ideas on the future can be found in this chapter, A Tailored Fit: The Future of Retailing, from his forthcoming book, “Foresight 2020: A Futurist Looks Ahead to Ten Trends That Will Shape the Coming Decade.”

In the past year, Uldrich has addressed hundreds of business groups and trade associations around the world, including delivering customized keynote presentations to The Chief Learning Officers Summit, PepsiCo, United Healthcare, Cisco, IBM, WiPro, SingTel, the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce and General Electric.
