Agricultural banking interactions will continue to evolve as customers’ physical and virtual worlds become intertwined, and social networks and mobile platforms will transform customers’ banking experiences and expectations.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
Following a series of nine keynote events across the U.S. in January, global futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich has been selected to deliver the opening keynote address on future trends in agriculture and finances in San Antonio, TX on February 12th. Uldrich delivered his most recent talk, Banking Beyond 2020, to the WBA (Wisconsin Banking Association) last week.
Uldrich will deliver his keynote, "The Big AHA: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow's Twelve Transformational Trends, Today." Among the twelve trends Uldrich is discussing is the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things and agriculture may not seem interrelated at first glance, but futurist Jack Uldrich says, “agricultural banking interactions will continue to evolve as customers’ physical and virtual worlds become intertwined. Social networks and mobile platforms will transform customers’ banking experiences and expectations. Many other advances connected with the Internet of Things such as peer to peer lending will create an environment where a premium is placed on unconventional thinking and risk-taking. And the future of farming will be transformed."
Drawing on highlights from his upcoming book, “Business as Unusual,” Uldrich will also share insights on Big Data, precision agriculture, prescriptive planting, 3D manufacturing, wearable technology, robotics, genomics, nanotechnology, peer-to-peer lending, collaborative consumption and the Big AHA (his acronym for Awareness, Humility and Action) with Farm Credit System audience members.
A highly acclaimed futurist and trend expert, Uldrich has spoken all over the world to a variety of industries and organizations. He has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and National Public Radio and is a guest commentator on the Discovery Channel's "FutureScape."
Uldrich who is also recognized as a leading expert in the field of change management and unlearning, has addressed dozens of agricultural corporations and associations, including AgBank, FS Systems, Novozymes, Land O' Lakes, the PMA, Wells Fargo, CoBank, Ag Spectrum, MosaicAg, Case IH, The Christian Farmers Federation, The Iowa Institute for Cooperatives, The Agricultural Adaptation Council of Ontario, AgGateway, the California Ag Summit, along with several other clients in a variety of industries, like the AMA, Fiatech, United Healthcare, Cisco, IBM, and Verizon Wireless.
