Futurist Jack Uldrich Returns to Orlando as Keynote Presenter at Pearson Learning Solutions

January 26th, award-winning author and technology forecaster, Jack Uldrich returns to Orlando to present the keynote speech to Pearson Learning Solutions.

People may not like change, but my guess is they will like obsolescence even more.

    ORLANDO, FL, January 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jack Uldrich, recently named the Bellwether Book Award winner for 2014, will return to Orlando on the heels of a highly successful presentation at the Mosaic AgCollege earlier in January.

Uldrich will be presenting a customized presentation on the future of higher education developed specifically for the well noted and innovative company, Pearson Learning Solutions. The material for Uldrich's keynote presentation will be drawn from his two latest books, the Bellwether Award winning, "Foresight 2020: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow" and "Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future." He will also share highlights from his forthcoming book, "Business as Unusual: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow's Transformational Trends."

This particular presentation for Pearson Learning Solutions will cover trends in information and communication technologies, robotics, cloud computing, next generation mobile and social technologies, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, genomics, wearable technologies, the "Internet of Things" and "Big Data." It is designed to provide attendees a solid foundation upon which they can take action to create their own successful futures and inspire educators to explore the cutting edge in the classroom. A synopsis of some of Uldrich's ideas on tomorrow's transformational technologies can be found in this Forbes article, 10 Game-Changing Technological Trends Transforming the World of Tomorrow.

In addition to covering future trends, Uldrich will also provide an overview of how technological change and enhanced mobility is rapidly changing customer expectations and behavior. And, in the process, upending long-standing business models. Uldrich, who has been hailed as "America's Chief Unlearning Officer," will conclude his talk by reviewing the consequences of not future-proofing your organization against tomorrow's changes.

In 2013 alone, Uldrich addressed hundreds of business groups around the world, including delivering customized keynote presentations to Invensys, United Healthcare, Bausch and Lomb, Boston Scientific, Optus, Eaton, the European Association of International Educators, the Rochester Institute of Technology, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and scores of other corporations, associations and private organizations.

Titles of his other presentations range from "Why Future Trends Demand Unlearning" and "The Big AHA: How to Future-Proof Your Business" to "Business as Unusual: 19 Ways Unconventional Ways to Succeed Tomorrow" and "The New Normal is Abnormal." Uldrich's presentations have been quoted as being "educational", "motivational and inspiring." (Clips of some of his previous work can be seen in this link to his videos.)
