One of my primary goals as a change agent and futurist is to help educators and industry leaders see and embrace the extraordinary changes coming their way.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Throughout the month of February, Jack Uldrich, widely acknowledged as one of the world's leading business forecasters, will be delivering keynote addresses at the following events:
February 7th: AAIE, (Association for the Advancement of International Education) Boston, MA.
February 13-14th: The Million Dollar Round Table, Kuala Lampur, Malaysia
February 25th: Allan P. Kirby Lecture, Wilkes Barre, PA.
The presentations will be customized to address AAIE's themes of "Eyes on the Future:
Future Trends and Foresight Education," MRDT's theme of "Tools to focus on your team on excellence," and Wilkes University's mission "to continue the Wilkes tradition of liberally educating their students for lifelong learning and success in a constantly evolving and multicultural world."
Throughout the course of the presentations Uldrich will impart many of the notions in his popular and Bellwether award-winning book, "Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow," and "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future." He will also focus on 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,” will affect future trends in both education and the marketplace.
A synopsis of some of Uldrich’s ideas on tomorrow’s transformational technologies can be found in this article, 10 Game-Changing Technological Trends Transforming the World of Tomorrow.
In addition to covering future trends, Uldrich will also provide an overview of how technological change and enhanced mobility is rapidly shifting both consumer and student expectations and behavior and, in the process, upending long-standing business and education models. And in order to ensure his message of change "sticks" with his audiences Uldrich will use vivid analogies and memorable stories, drawn from a wide spectrum of industries. A video sample of his talk on "unlearning" at the EAIE Conference in Istanbul last year can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YQTEdTm6ec. Uldrich, who has been hailed as "America's Chief Unlearning Officer," will conclude his talks by reviewing the consequences of not future-proofing one's organization against tomorrow’s changes.
In the past year, Uldrich has addressed hundreds of business and trade groups from around the world, including customized keynote presentations at ten McGladrey Emerging Technology Summits across the United States, Case IH, Emerson, the Women’s Food Forum, PepsiCo, United Healthcare, Boston Scientific, Southern Company, Cisco, IBM, WiPro, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Avnet, Digi-Key and various YPO and WPO groups.
