The pandemic has catapulted the world into a future of deep change. In this engaging, provocative, and insightful keynote session acclaimed global futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich will not only discuss how Coronavirus is transforming the world of tomorrow, he explains why it is accelerating many of the trends that were already at work prior to the epidemic. History reminds us that great crises produce great change–as well as great opportunities. To take advantage of these extraordinary opportunities, businesses must position themselves now to operate in a world where “business as unusual” is the new “usual.” This session will help leaders at every level of an organization leverage ten “unconventional” techniques to succeed in today’s–and tomorrow’s–transformational times.


A great reset is now upon us. Less obvious is the reality that the world was quietly being reset prior to the pandemic. The rules of business were being rewritten by an extraordinary cadre of individuals, enterprises, and organizations willing to rethink long-held assumptions, reinvent products and processes; and reestablish new and innovative ways to re-engage with both their employees and the wider world. These leaders are at the vanguard Generation RE–an ageless cohort of change agents working to recreate the world anew.


 


In this refreshing, entertaining, and insightful keynote presentation, global futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich shares key insights of his forthcoming book, The Great Reset: The Emerging Age of Reimagination, Reconnection, and Renewal (Greenleaf Book Group, 2021). He also explains how leaders can embrace and leverage the principles of “Generation RE” in order to reframe problems into opportunities, restore communities and our natural world, reconnect with employees and customers at a deeper, more meaningful level, and reimagine a better, bolder and more beautiful future.


In the near future, the greatest change will be the accelerating rate of change itself. In this enlightening, entertaining and educational session, Jack Uldrich shares insights from his book, Business as Unusual and outlines the ten trends that will transform the world of tomorrow. Uldrich also identifies concrete actions businesses can take today to future-proof themselves against “the tides of tomorrow.”


The average lifespan of a Fortune 1000 company is 15 years–and dropping. Why is this happening? Primarily, it’s because companies are so focused on the present, they fail to appreciate how the world of tomorrow is changing. Smart companies hire futurists to survive. Wise companies learn how to think like a futurist and instill a “future mindset” throughout their organization.


In this interactive, engaging and educational seminar, best-selling author and renowned global futurist Jack Uldrich will instruct you and your team on how to “think like a futurist” and “future-proof” your organization in the process.


Today, the greatest change is the rate of change itself. Put another way, society is transitioning to a period of constant transition. The net effect is that “answers” about the future are decreasing in value. This reality is, paradoxically, placing greater emphasis on the need to ask better questions.


In this thought-provoking but practical presentation, global futurist and best-selling author Jack Uldrich shares with his audience how the art and science of framing and asking better questions can not only help individuals and organizations survive tomorrow’s rapidly changing environment but thrive by providing the key insights necessary for confidently creating their own future.
