The future of retail technologies is taking place at breakneck speed. Cumbersome cash registers are being replaced by sleek new designs; chip technology on credit cards is continuously being updated to ensure safety and privacy and paper receipts are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

According to NCR (the National Cash Register Company), retail-based companies are, "continuously shifting to meet the expectations of today’s unified commerce environment. Long term success is being defined by those who embrace a blended focus on optimizing core operations while also defining a strategic roadmap to create tomorrow’s business."

This year's NCR Synergy 2016 will feature keynote speakers George Blankenship, Jack Uldrich, James H. Johnson, Doug Stephens and Paul Langenbahn.

Among those speakers, global futurist Jack Uldrich will specifically discuss the "The Future of Retail." He will address approximately 1200 attendees comprised of retailers, wholesale distributors and NCR leaders and staff members.

His keynote is designed to offer insights to the NCR audience regarding. "a variety of game changing technological trends are transforming the world of tomorrow." Uldrich says, "The trends are exciting and scary, positive and negative, prosaic and profound, and will impact both one's personal and professional life. As Cervantes said centuries ago, ''Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory.'"

Aa an expert in change management and future trends, Uldrich will focus on how individuals in retail can enhance their awareness of transformational changes that are coming in the industry. Highlights will include how retailers can learn to “embrace ambiguity;" why finding a “reverse mentor” could be crucial, and why taking small risks may very well be the safest thing retailers can do to position themselves for success in the years to come.

Some of Uldrich's other clients in retail and supply management include the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), Women's Food Forum, TRUNO, the Food Marketing Institute, GameStop's Executive Summit, Utility Supply Management Association, and Verizon Wireless.
