The future may be unknowable. This does not, however, imply we can’t be prepared for it.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Thomas Chermack, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University and Founder and Director of the Scenario Planning Institute, asks the question: “What’s the value of a single strategic insight that allows you to avoid some catastrophic event?” Futurist Jack Uldrich makes a living talking with people about the answers to that very question.
On May 8th, Uldrich will deliver his keynote, "The Big AHA: How to Future-Proof Your Property and Casualty Insurance Business Against Tomorrow's Transformational Trends" in Marana, AZ to the expert providers of personal, commercial, and special risk insurance at the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company.
The Fireman's Fund has been a provider of specialized insurance solutions for 150 years. So future-proofing for others is what they are all about. The Fireman's Fund Insurance Company has helped rebuild cities, underwritten major construction projects, and managed risk for the world's most popular films. As an industry leader in high net worth, entertainment, and green insurance, they innovate to serve customer needs. Now they have selected futurist and trend expert Jack Uldrich to talk with them about how to future-proof their own business in the coming years.
Uldrich's keynote aims to keep them on track and step up their game. Some of the topics that he will address with the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company are included in this Article: Five Foreseeable Future Risks. Other highlights will include how leaders at the FFIC can learn to “embrace ambiguity;" why finding a “reverse mentor” could be crucial; and why taking small risks may very well be the safest thing the FFIC can do to position themselves for success in the years to come.
In the past year, Uldrich has spoken to numerous property and casual insurance firms including Guardian Life Insurance, The Insurance Service Organization and the Risk Insurance and Management Societies of Minnesota and Michigan. He is recognized as a leading expert in the field of change management and unlearning, and has delivered custom designed keynotes to hundreds of organizations both nationally and internationally. Recent engagements include the Verizon Wireless' Connected Technology Tour, the AMA, Chu Vision Foundation, Fiatech, TEXPERS, the Million Dollar Round Table in Malaysia, and The Allan P. Kirby Lecture Series at Wilkes University. You can take a look at his thoughts on "unlearning" in this video clip.
He was also recently awarded the Bellwether Book Award for his book, “Foresight 20/20.” A synopsis of some of Uldrich's ideas on tomorrow's transformational technologies can be found in this Forbes article: http://smallbusiness.forbes.com/small-business-articles/10-game-changing-technological-trends-transforming-tomorrow-2880.
