The game isn’t just changing, it’s changing at an accelerating velocity. Tomorrow could figuratively—and, perhaps, literally—be out of this world.

Following 9 keynote speaking engagements in September, Trend Expert and Change Agent Jack Uldrich will headline 11 events throughout the U.S.

Uldrich is a Futurist. According to Wikipedia, "the term 'futurist' most commonly refers to authors, consultants, organizational leaders and others who engage in interdisciplinary and systems thinking to advise private and public organizations on such matters as diverse global trends, possible scenarios, emerging market opportunities and risk management.

"In the mid‑1940s the first professional "futurist" consulting institutions like RAND and SRI began to engage in long-range planning, systematic trend watching, scenario development, and visioning, at first under World War II military and government contract and, beginning in the 1950s, for private institutions and corporations."

Uldrich is a former naval intelligence officer and Defense Department official. He also served as the Director of the Minnesota Office of Strategic and Long Range Planning under Governor Jesse Ventura.

His bestselling and award-winning books include, Unlearning 101: 101 Lessons in Thinking Inside-Out the Box, Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future, The Next Big Thing is Really Small: How Nanotechnology Will Change the Future of Your Business, and Jump the Curve: 50 Essential Strategies to Help Your Company Stay Ahead of Emerging Technologies. He is also the author of Green Investing: A Guide to Making Money through Environment-Friendly Stocks. An excerpt from his most recent work Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Transformational Trends of Tomorrow can be found here.
