Smoother, Faster, Smarter: Jack Uldrich to Speak on Future-Proofing the Iowa Asphalt Industry

Futurist Jack Uldrich to deliver a keynote address at the 61st Annual APAI Convention.

 This morning in Des Moines, distinguished guest speaker Jack Uldrich will deliver his keynote address, “The Big A-HA! How to Future-Proof against Tomorrow’s Transformational Transportation Trends, Today.”

In his talk, he will discuss the latest game-changing technology to impact the Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa and the best approach to embracing the onslaught of change that is fast approaching the industry.

"You must strive to enhance your awareness of changes on the horizon; have enough humility to acknowledge that what served your business well in the past might not be sufficient tomorrow, and be willing to take action in the face of less-than-perfect information."​

Uldrich, a leading futurist, best-selling author, and a graduate of Drake University, makes his living speaking both nationally and internationally on a variety of topics such as future trends, emerging technologies, innovation, change management and leadership. He is also a leading expert on assisting businesses "unlearn" and adapt during times of transition.

As the author of "The Next Big Thing is Really Small," Uldrich says a wide variety of technological advances will affect the industry in the coming years, particularly Nanotechnology. He says the Internet of Things and Big Data will also influence the industry in a myriad of ways.

The Big A-HA is Uldrich's acronym for the leadership skills he's a proponent of Awareness, Humility, and Action. He says,"You must strive to enhance your awareness of changes on the horizon; have enough humility to acknowledge that what served your business well in the past might not be sufficient tomorrow, and be willing to take action in the face of less-than-perfect information."

Following his keynote to the APAI, Uldrich will head to Colorado to deliver a keynote in the evening to the Colorado Wheat Association.
