How 'Future-Proof' is Your Business?

Best-Selling Author Jack Uldrich

Futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich will be speaking at thirteen events this month to share his research and insights on how businesses can be better positioned to survive and thrive in a fast-changing future.

Jack Uldrich, global futurist and best-selling author of Foresight 20/20, will be presenting thirteen keynote speeches around the U.S. in the month of April. He starts his month in Las Vegas, NV on Thursday, where he will be speaking to leaders with Uponor on future trends in smart homes. He then travels throughout the country, including three stops in Houston, TX. Uldrich's final scheduled event of April is in Dallas, TX on the 26, where he'll share his research on the future of wealth management.

In addition to these events, Uldrich will be sharing his insights on future trends in a wide variety of industries this month, including Construction, Energy, Health Care, Insurance, Manufacturing, Meat, Retail, and Trucking. Although each industry is different, the rapid advancement of technology affects them all, and Uldrich's work is focused on helping leaders "future-proof" their businesses.

The work I do is all about helping organizations prepare for the coming technological changes so that they can effectively navigate and determine the course of their future.

Uldrich says: "The work I do is all about helping organizations prepare for the coming technological changes so that they can effectively navigate and determine the course of their future."  When it comes to future-proofing, he says the first thing organizations need to do is to acknowledge that the future will be different — perhaps radically different — than the present.

In his customized presentations, Uldrich frequently talks not just about the importance of being aware of new technology, but also the ability to unlearn old ways of doing things that may no longer be relevant in our fast-changing world. A big part of future-proofing is recognizing that "business-as-usual" may not be an acceptable strategy in the future.

Internationally recognized for his engaging presentations and his insights on the potential impacts of emerging technology, Uldrich speaks over 100 times each year and has presented his message to global leaders on five continents.
