As a futurist, I don't predict the future, I help organizations prepare for it.

No one can predict the future; but global futurist Jack Uldrich helps organizations prepare for it.

Jack Uldrich is a leading global futurist, speaker, and author of eleven books, including a number of awards and winning best sellers. As a recognized global futurist, Uldrich frequently speaks on technology, change management and leadership. He is joining the International Card manufacturers Association for their 2015 Expo in Phoenix next Tuesday, March 30th. Uldrich will share his energy, anecdotes, and thoughtful business and personal advice, and aim to educate, entertain, and inspire his ICMA audience members. He will deliver his keynote: “Foresight 2020: The Ten Trends Transforming Tomorrow.”

Through his keynotes and follow up strategy sessions Uldrich helps a wide variety of organizations and their leaders gain the critical foresight they need to create a successful future. His work is based on the transformational principles of unlearning – or freeing yourself from obsolete knowledge and assumptions – as a strategy to survive and thrive in an era of unparalleled change.

Uldrich argues that creativity and action are more powerful and versatile than knowledge. He says, "Unless a person is constantly acquiring new knowledge and unlearning old obsolete knowledge, their assertions of “years of experience” must be taken with a healthy dose of salt." He regularly makes television appearances on the Science Channel’s “FutureScape” program and the Discovery Channel show “Inside Out,” and is a frequent guest on major media outlets, including CNN, CNBC and National Public Radio.

As a writer, Uldrich is also an ongoing contributor on emerging technologies and future trends for a number of publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Wired Magazine and BusinessWeek. Jack is a former naval intelligence officer and Defense Department official. Uldrich previously served as the director of the Minnesota Office of Strategic and Long-Range Planning.
