As a futurist I encourage business leaders to try new things, play with new emerging technologies, and partner with innovative individuals and companies to explore new technologies and delve into new ways of doing business.
Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
Just prior to their 2014 Communications Industry Executive Forum leaders at CoBank in Colorado Springs will gain invaluable insight into the current economic climate of our nation and the current agriculture industry as well as a glimpse into their future. Futurist Jack Uldrich will be addressing the CoBank leaders on Thursday, August 14th at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort delivering a custom designed presentation on future trends in finance and agriculture.
With his presentation Uldrich will help CoBank hone in on how they can most effectively utilize their current knowledge, and develop new practices surrounding emerging technology to fuel innovative actions and empowering decisions.
Jack Uldrich is a highly sought after keynote speaker, and bestselling author, who focuses on emerging trends in a number of areas such as economics, agriculture, healthcare, finance, energy, the environment, Internet and communications. Uldrich goes beyond simple trend analysis and offers his audiences, like CoBank, practical tools for leveraging rapid technology-driven change, that give them the upper hand while forging ahead into the future.
Drawing on content from his upcoming book: "Business as Unusual: How to Future-Proof Your Business Against Tomorrow's Trends, Today," Uldrich will share insights on the Internet of Things, Big Data, and the Big AHA with CoBank audience members. (For more of Uldrich's insights on the Big AHA click here.)
Some highlights of the discussion will include how leaders at CoBank 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 they can do to position themselves for success in the years to come.
