The greatest change in the near future will be the rate of change itself — it is accelerating every day. In this enlightening, energetic, entertaining and educational session, global futurist Jack Uldrich will share the content from his forthcoming book (“Business as Unusual: The Big AHA”) and outline ten trends transforming businesses, as well as identify a series of concrete actions people can take today in order to future-proof their business models, their customers and themselves against “the tides of tomorrow.”
Learn how individuals can become more aware of transformational change in the workplace and then use this awareness to position their companies, organizations and communities for the future; Understand why embracing humility and ambiguity will provide leaders increased confidence and clarity in shaping their future; Explore how a series of tangible actions—including taking a “think week,” finding a “reverse mentor” and conducting a “pre-mortem” (among others)—will be crucial to creating a successful future.
