While technology may be changing at warp speed, good business sense is firmly rooted in principles of the past. The paradox of embracing both is crucial to independent dealers success.

Charles M. Schulz, author of the Peanuts cartoon, once famously said, "Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use." "Nothing could be more true in today's world where our metaphorical gears are increasing at warp speed," says futurist Jack Uldrich. Uldrich will be addressing the Independent Bike Dealers (IBD) Summit, in Tempe, Arizona on Thursday, January 29th with his keynote address, "Business as Unusual" which will focus on how the IBD can start future-proofing their businesses against the trends of tomorrow.
Highly acclaimed speaker and best selling author Jack Uldrich travels the world addressing a wide variety of organizations from telecommunications to healthcare, manufacturing to education. His message is clear: The future is predictably unpredictable. And the way to prepare for it is by embracing the paradox of seeing your own ignorance as the path to wisdom.
From the League of Innovation to Pfizer and Verizon, Uldrich addresses the top business trends affecting all of these industries. In one of his latest blog posts he covers the top ten technological trends that will transform the world in 2015. When it comes to the IBD, Uldrich says the trends in nanotechnology, manufacturing and 3D printing will in all likelihood have the most impact.
While the need for speed may be the goal some consumers have in mind when it comes to cycling, others are looking at the quality of the bikes themselves with the materials that are light and long lasting. Others simply want to know that the simple joys of biking won't be undone by the technological advances. In other words, that the gears beyond 10 won't complicate life so much that getting out on the trail or road will inhibit the joys of a good ride.
In addressing organizations like The Entrepreneurs Organization and IBD, Uldrich aims to inform these innovative business people of the trends that are coming their way and to encourage them to embrace his acronym of AHA---Awareness, Humility and Action---as fundamental tools that will guide them through the technological tides of change. "While technology may be changing at warp speed, good business sense is firmly rooted in these principles of the past. The paradox of embracing both is crucial to an independent dealer's success."
