Leaders must become aware of the extraordinary changes taking place across today’s global landscape. Not everything you learned in the past about your business, your customers or your competitors is still necessarily true today.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
Bill Gates once famously said, “Banking will remain necessary in the future, banks may not." Futurist Jack Uldrich wants his audiences in the financial sector, especially in the world of investment banking to be ready to embrace the future. To that end, Signal Hill has invited Uldrich to address their annual meeting being held in Las Vegas. Uldrich will focus on the major technological trends that will impact Signal Hill, and how they can utilize his concept of the the "Big AHA” to better embrace those changes. (AHA is Uldrich’s acronym for Awareness, Humility and Action.) He says these three elements are key components in future-proofing one’s business against the changing tides of tomorrow’s technological trends.
As a futurist, Jack Uldrich is often asked the question as to what the coming decade will look like. He responds by saying, “The honest answer is that no one knows. The better question to be asking is: how can business leaders prepare for a constantly changing future?” An AHA moment may be the very answer to that question.
First, Uldrich claims that "leaders must become aware of the extraordinary changes taking place across today’s global landscape. Not everything learned in the past about business, customers or competitors is still necessarily true today. Secondarily, having a sense of humility and admitting that outmoded ideas may no longer be serving a company is a crucial aspect in powerfully moving ahead into the future--even though we may not know what that future is.”
Lastly, “Once a leader is aware that change is the the only 'constant' in today’s world, that leader must be humble enough to accept the fact that unlearning will be just as important as learning, and that specific actions must be taken to prepare for the future.”
The answers to questions such as this and many more will be addressed in Uldrich’s January 21st keynote to attendees of the Signal Hill Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, as well as in six more presentations focusing on future-proofing across the U. S. throughout the month of January.
