The greatest change in the near future will be the rate of change itself—it is accelerating. In this enlightening, energetic, entertaining and educational session, global futurist Jack Uldrich will share the content from his forthcoming book, Business as Unusual: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow’s Transformational Trends, Today, and outline the 10 trends transforming the world of tomorrow, as well as identify a series of concrete actions industry leaders can take today to future-proof themselves and their customers against “the tides of tomorrow.”

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.

When Tim Urban began digging into research on artificial intelligence, he could not believe what he was reading. It hit him pretty quickly that what’s happening in the world of AI is not just an important topic, but by far THE most important topic for our future. In what Vox called his “epic series on artificial intelligence,” Urban took readers on a deep exploration of what AI is, how it works and why it might dramatically change our lives. The article was widely shared, even catching the eye of Elon Musk, who shared the article twice on Twitter, commenting “Excellent and funny intro article about Artificial Superintelligence! Highly recommend reading.” Urban has since turned his exploration of AI into a gripping talk—one that the head of Sweden’s Øredev conference tweeted was “the best keynote in years.” After watching the talk at Social Media Week in New York, conference founder Toby Daniels wrote that Urban “was brilliant, inspiring and terrifying at the same time, and left most of us speechless, breathless and in a mixed emotional state of wonder and awe at what the future holds.”
