The last five years have seen a great deal of change for the industry. Things aren't going to slow down."

Popular keynote speaker, energy industry futurist, change management expert and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich, has been selected to deliver a keynote presentation as well as lead a strategic planning session with the senior executive leadership team of the Southern California Gas Company. The topic of his presentation will be a customized version of his talk: "The Future Will Require Unlearning."

The talk, based on Uldrich's two most recent books: "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future" and "Jump the Curve: 50 Essential Strategies to Help Companies Stay Ahead of Emerging Technologies," will cover a wide variety of areas including potential new uses for natural gas in a carbon-constrained economy; the impact of new materials and technologies on the production, distribution and transportation of natural gas; the role of environmental regulation on the production of shale gas; the evolution of the international market for liquefied natural gas; as well as a discussion on possible future discoveries of unconventional future natural gas supplies.

Uldrich will then discuss why these trends will require unlearning as well as review the consequences of not embracing the concept of unlearning. Uldrich, who has been hailed as "America's Chief Unlearning Officer," will conclude by providing an overview of how these technological changes will also transform customer behaviors and upend long-standing business models in the natural gas industry.

Throughout his talk, Uldrich 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 his ideas may be found in this chapter from his new book, Foresight 2020: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow.
