International Futurist to Speak on the Future of Manufacturing Today

Acclaimed speaker and author Jack Uldrich is in Wisconsin today to address leaders in manufacturing

Global Futurist Jack Uldrich

Futurist Jack Uldrich is in Menomonee Falls today to share his insights on the future of manufacturing with leaders at Renaissance Manufacturing Group. In his keynote, Uldrich will address how manufacturers can start future-proofing themselves by embracing emerging technologies in artificial intelligence, the internet of things, Big Data, 3D manufacturing, nanotechnology, robotics, and blockchain technology. 

Uldrich is of the opinion that, "The greatest change right now is the rate of change. That, coupled with the fact that we are transitioning to a period of constant transition, are two inescapable truths facing us today.” A lover of paradox, Uldrich says that blending the old with the new, and taking the time to slow down as things are speeding up makes good sense -- it's simply a matter of unlearning old habits.

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


He says, "As we continue to make these exponential leaps, at an unparalleled pace, we must take more time to think. In a world where gratification is for the most part instantaneous it is of the utmost importance that we start to take time out to pause and consider what to embrace and what to let go of.” His aim is to help his audiences unlearn the barriers currently holding them back so they can unlock new levels of creativity and innovation. 

A frequent speaker on the future trends in manufacturing, his clients include the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), Stiles, Siemens, the IBD, Emerson, ABB, Honeywell, Trane, Eaton, and the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI.)

Uldrich is also the author of 11 books, including the award-winning bestsellers: The Next Big Thing is Really Small: How Nanotechnology Will Change the Future of Your Business and Jump the Curve: 50 Essential Strategies to Help Your Company Stay Ahead of Emerging Technology. His most recent book is Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow.
