In order to truly thrive in the years ahead, business owners must begin future-proofing their organizations by learning about and embracing the latest technological trends.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
The 2014 Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) Experience being held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will feature futurist Jack Uldrich as a guest speaker on February 13th and 14th. (The MDRT Experience offers one-of-a-kind information, as well as opportunities to share innovative ideas and exclusive strategies with a diverse group of the world's leading life insurance and financial services professionals from more than 450 companies in 74 countries.)
In order to enhance their mission of being "a valued, member-driven, international network of leading insurance and investment financial services professionals/advisors who serve their clients by exemplary performance and the highest standards of ethics, knowledge, service and productivity," MDRT has chosen business trends expert Jack Uldrich as a double-heading keynote speaker. Uldrich will namely be tackling the issue of how those in the life insurance and financial services industries can begin future-proofing their businesses. Other notable speakers at the event include Bill Cates, Duncan McPherson, Colleen Francis and Eric Feng.
Uldrich’s particular focus on the notion of "future-proofing" will serve as a diving board for MDRT members who will be swimming amidst a sea of technological changes in the coming years. The goal of Uldrich’s sessions is to deliver cutting-edge ideas, technologically savvy information and invigorating new concepts for the 6,500 members who attend his talks.
Throughout his presentations Uldrich will cover various aspects of his popular and Bellwether Award-winning new book, "Foresight 2020: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow," and draw on his work in the field of change management. Uldrich will also draw upon ideas from his 2011 best-seller "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future."
Another goal of Uldrich’s, while at MDRT, is to explain how business leaders must let go and—unlearn—many of their assumptions about their fields of insurance and finance, their current business models and customers, in order to grasp the full potential within their industries in the years ahead. Additionally, Uldrich will highlight why these trends demand unlearning and discuss how participants need to embrace the concept of future-proofing in order to achieve future success. Uldrich will conclude his presentations in Malaysia by reviewing specific habits, customs, beliefs and ideas that MRDT members and leaders can—and must adopt—in order to fully future-proof their organizations, and thrive.
An overview of some of Uldrich’s ideas can be found in this YouTube clip of his presentation, "Why Future Trends Demand Unlearning", which aired on WFYI in Indianapolis.
