The next decade is only a handful of years away. What might the world of 2020 like look like? How will you and your business have changed? More importantly, how will you and your organization need to change? The answer, in two short words, is a lot!

Consider this: Less than 10 years ago, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Wikipedia didn’t even exist; neither did iPhones, iPads, apps or Kindles. Now, fast-forward into the future and try to comprehend how accelerating advances in information and communication technologies, the “Internet of Things,” social media, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, brain-neural interfaces, gaming dynamics, crowdsourcing, and open-source sharing platforms will continue to drive seismic change and deliver paradigm-shattering transformation to nearly every facet of society. It’s not easy.

In this engaging and entertaining keynote presentation based on his book, Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow, globally renowned futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich will take the guesswork out of understanding the near future by providing an in-depth exploration of how ten technological trends will transform the world of 2020.

Whatever your industry, association or organization, Uldrich will work with you and your staff to create a customized presentation sure to not only energize and enlighten your audience but also provide them with the inspiration and ammunition to harness these trends and create their own successful future.

The pace of technological change is accelerating. Today’s organizations are living in a world where “constant change is the only constant.” New advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology and information technology are bringing forth exciting and unexpected discoveries every day, while the expansive and growing power of the Internet, social networking and the open-source movement are fueling the fires which threaten to consume much of today’s existing business landscape.

Lifelong learning will obviously be more essential than ever in this chaotic and churning environment; but often lost in this new emerging reality of exponential change is the fact that before an organization can seize tomorrow’s opportunities, it must first unlearn old, obsolete knowledge as well as unlearn the old ways of doing business.

In this fascinating, informative, entertaining, interactive and enlightening presentation, noted global futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich—who has been hailed by BusinessWeek as “America’s Chief Unlearning Officer”—will not only explain why unlearning is a critical skill for your company or an organization’s employees, he will also demonstrate how unlearning can help:

  • Successfully navigate a future where the pace of scientific and technological knowledge is doubling every seven years;
  • Prepare for competition that doesn’t yet exist; and
  • Seize opportunities which are, today, only on the periphery of their imagination.
