The future of farming will demand a great deal of "unlearning" and leaders should get ready to conduct business as UNusual.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Noted keynote speaker, global futurist and best-selling author, Jack Uldrich, has been selected to deliver keynote addresses on future trends in agriculture to three agricultural-related organizations in January of 2014. On January 15, Uldrich will be speaking at Mosaic’s AgCollege in Orlando, Florida. On January 21, Uldrich, a well-regarded farm futurist, will be highlighting a private firm's annual conference event in Edmonton, Alberta, and on January 30, he will be the luncheon keynote speaker at United Ag’s 34th annual meeting and conference in Palm Springs.
In addition to covering many of the aspects in his popular and award-winning book, "Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow," Uldrich--who is also the author of "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future"--will discuss how exponential advances in a variety of emerging technologies, including practical advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology, information management, augmented reality, robotics, RFID, "Big Data," “the Internet of Things,” wearable technologies, renewable energy sources and satellite and sensor technology will affect agriculture. Uldrich will also cover how social networking, biofuels and water management will transform farming in the years ahead. (A sample of some of Uldrich’s ideas on the future of agriculture can be found in this chapter from his latest book, “Foresight 2020”, or this recent Forbes article, 10 Game-Changing Technological Trends Transforming Tomorrow.)
