AUSTIN, Texas, February 5, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Futurist Jack Uldrich starts a busy February in Austin today where he will keynote an event for DRI. There he will be sharing his research and insights on the future of insurance. Following his presentation today, Uldrich will travel to Orlando, Chicago, Raleigh, Minneapolis, and will end the month at an event in St. Louis. In addition to insurance, other industries he will address in February include urban planning, IT services, manufacturing, and engineering.
Every industry today is experiencing rapid change, and Uldrich's work as a futurist helps leaders prepare for and navigate periods of profound transformation.
According to Uldrich, "Change is all around us, and it's accelerating. From one perspective, it is painful and disorienting. Especially in the sense that certain technologies, jobs, and institutions will become relics of the past, much like the phone booth of my youth. From another perspective, it is exciting. Why? Because with today's new tools, the future is calling. Software, social media, virtual reality, robotics, 3D printers, nanotechnology, synthetic biology, artificial intelligence and gene editing technologies will allow us to rethink virtually every industry and, in the process, create entirely new ones."
He continues, "When it comes to future-proofing, the first thing organizations need to do is to acknowledge that the future will be different-perhaps radically different-than the present."
Uldrich's February speaking engagements include:
