The best--and only--way to predict the future is to create it yourself.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Following on the heels of successful keynote presentations to Harrisburg, St. Louis and Indianapolis chapters of Young Presidents' Organization (YPO), popular keynote speaker, renowned global futurist, technology forecaster and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich has been selected to deliver the keynote talk at the Bradenton Area Economic Development Corporation's annual meeting on November 21. The title of Uldrich's talk is "Foresight 2020: Tomorrow's Technology, Today."
The material presented in the two keynotes will be based on a combination of Uldrich's best-selling books, "Foresight 2020: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow" and “Jump the Curve; 50 Essential Strategies to Help Your Company Stay Ahead of Emerging Technologies”.
The interactive speech, which has been tailored specifically to the Bradenton area, is designed to provide local and regional 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 YouTube clip of his presentation, "Why Future Trends Demand Unlearning", which also aired on WFYI in Indianapolis.
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" and is author of 2011 best-seller "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future," 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.
In the past year, Uldrich has addressed hundreds of business groups around the world, including delivering customized keynote presentations to Eaton, Invensys, United Healthcare, Franklin Templeton, Optus, Bausch and Lomb, the European Association of International Educators and scores of other corporations, associations and organizations.
