The true potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) is vast, and I see my job, as a futurist, as being helping people to understand and embrace it.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Verizon Wireless is making waves with their Connected Technology Tour--crossing the nation with informative seminars that are showing people how to transform their businesses and agencies with Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions. And they are utilizing futurist Jack Uldrich's expertise as a keynote speaker to engage their clients and prepare them for the tides of tomorrow's change.
Selected as a keynote speaker for twelve of Verizon's Tour events, Uldrich is traveling across the U.S. delivering his address entitled, "How the Internet of Things will Transform Business."
Uldrich says, "A common and popular vision of the Internet of Things,"—which he loosely defines as the connection of billions of physical objects to the Internet through the use of low-cost sensors—"is the example of an alarm clock smart enough to read your daily schedule, review the latest traffic and weather reports and then communicate this information to your coffee maker in such a way that you’ll be able to maximize your sleep while still getting to work on time with a piping hot cup of java in your hands."
While Uldrich states that this vision of the future is entirely possible, he also says it sells short the true potential of the Internet of Things (IoT)." Hence Uldrich's passion for speaking on the subject and helping his audiences to embrace the immense change coming our way.

Uldrich regularly addresses thought leaders in all industries-- utilities, agriculture, manufacturing, finance, insurance, retail, hospitality, healthcare and government, to name a few. Recent engagements include the PMA Tech Knowledge Symposium in San Diego, the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company in Marana, Arizona, and the Utility Supply Management Association in Nashville.
