As a futurist, I like to challenge economists to think about the unthinkable and prepare them to expect the unexpected.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
It has been said, 'The best way to predict your future is to create it.' But creating a plan for the future is no easy task. This year's 2014 Economic Forum, entitled "Creating Tomorrow," is focused on helping credit unions do just that – create a tomorrow that will ensure credit unions grow and thrive.
Catalyst engaged Uldrich, back in April, as a keynote speaker at their Accelerating Success Conference in Las Vegas and they have invited him back to their Economic Forum In Dallas to discuss how they can start creating their own futures and, in turn, create success credit unions, that are able to both embrace and cultivate change.
Uldrich says, "Each year information technology is only getting better, faster, and cheaper; and hundreds of millions of new individuals are being drawn into a hyper-connected and networked global economy. The previously unknown ideas and insights of those hundreds of millions of individuals are now being added to the global consciousness, further accelerating change.
"One of the key things I do with my clients and audience members is to challenge them to think about the unthinkable. It is an excellent way to remind one’s self to always “expect the unexpected.” This, in turn, reminds individuals and organizations, like Catalyst, to focus on integrating the principles of flexibility and adaptability into their strategic planning processes. In the future “change will be the only constant,” and it’s imperative to always keep this idea top of mind."
Uldrich will draw on materials from his book Foresight 20/20, the second edition of the book will be coming out in November.
