Global Futurist, Speaker, Author
Perfectly aligned to address the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of changing and new opportunities. AHA is an acronym for Jack’s three-step approach: Awareness, Humility, and Action.
In the near future, the greatest change will be the accelerating rate of change itself. In this enlightening, entertaining and educational session, Jack shares insights from his book, Business as Unusual: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow’s Transformational Trends, Today. He outlines the ten trends that will transform the world of tomorrow. Jack also identifies concrete actions businesses can take today to future-proof themselves against “the tides of tomorrow.”
Jack Uldrich is frequently asked, “What will the future look like?” His response is, “Predictably unpredictable.” So how can you prepare for the unpredictable? The answer will surprise you. The key is embracing paradox: learning to unlearn, thinking about the unthinkable, recognizing failure as a key component of success, and understanding that an awareness of one’s ignorance is a key component of true wisdom.
In this keynote based on his book (Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow) Uldrich paints vivid pictures of what the world may look like in just a few short years and its many impacts on your industry. He provides an in-depth exploration of how the “Internet of Things”, “Big Data”, artificial intelligence, blockchain and “collaborative consumption” will change the insurance industry in the very near future, and what we can do now to get ready. Jack will provide upbeat, practical and actionable insights on future trends, emerging technologies, innovation, change management and leadership.
“The perfect keynote for any company, organization or association celebrating a major anniversary!”
Winston Churchill once said, “The farther back one can look, the farther ahead one can see.” He was right. And what better time for any organization to look into the future than when celebrating 25, 50 or 100 years of success?
