When futurist Jack Uldrich addresses a group of senior leaders in the banking industry in Philadelphia on June 24th he'll be pointing out some tough truths: In 2005, Blackberry, Blockbuster and Borders all dominated their respective industries.Today, those companies are either bankrupt or struggling for their very survival. Similarly, ten years ago, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Uber and AirBnB were scarcely more than business plans but, today, each is now “disrupting” major portions of the global economy.
Uldrich says the aforementioned examples "are a poignant reminder that a lot can happen in a decade’s time." The aim of Uldrich’s presentation, entitled "The Next Ten Years: The Past is Prologue." is to assist his audience members of senior leaders in the financial sector navigate the decade ahead with an in-depth exploration of technological trends that will transform the world by 2025.

Still, other advances will create an environment where a premium is placed on unconventional thinking and risk-taking."
