Popular Futurist to Discuss the Future of the Hospitality Industry

Futurist and Keynote Speaker, Jack Uldrich

Global Futurist Jack Uldrich has been invited to address a group of senior leaders of an American multinational diversified hospitality company on Saturday, August 19, in Hawaii.

Prolific keynote speaker and futurist, Jack Uldrich, will be traveling to Hawaii to share his insights on the future of the hotel and lodging industry with executives in a leading hospitality company. 

As a futurist, Uldrich focuses on future-proofing businesses by preparing them to embrace future trends and technologies, including areas such as wearable technology, machine learning, augmented reality, 3D printing, nanotechnology, blockchain, and cryptocurrency, among others.

"Unlearning is a matter of becoming aware of your old habits and ways, understanding that they no longer serve you. It's undertaking the sometimes uncomfortable process of developing new practices. It is the essence of future-proofing.


What are other trends on the horizon for the hospitality industry? Uldrich says one of the biggest trends to be looking at is the Internet of Things. "By 2020, it is estimated that 50 billion physical objects will connect to the Internet. What does this mean for hospitality? In a word, everything."

Continuing, Uldrich says, "The Internet of Things is poised to radically transform customer behavior, business models and the nature of business itself."

"Business leaders have got to be aware of these accelerating technological trends," says Uldrich. "They must possess humility regarding new, unconventional competitors, and take deep strategic action in the coming years."

Jack Uldrich speaks over 100 times a year to a wide variety of businesses and organizations, particularly on the transformation of agriculture, health care, education, energy, finance, insurance, retail, and manufacturing.

His clients include the Retail Industry Leader Association, Cisco, United Healthcare, IBM, PepsiCo, WiPro, Verizon Wireless, FedEX, General Electric, and CenterPoint Energy.
