Bio

Acclaimed global futurist, best-selling author and speaker Jack Uldrich is frequently asked, “What will the future look like?” His response is, “Predictably unpredictable.” So how can you prepare for the unpredictable?

He provides an in-depth exploration of how the “internet of things,” big data, social media, robotics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, renewable energy, and “collaborative consumption” will change everyday life for all of us in the very near future.

A More Beautiful Future: Why it Matters & How to Create It

Appealing to the mind and heart, Uldrich spells out why the key to unlocking the future requires leaders and organizations to mindfully balance today’s hard trends with the ancient wisdom of the past.

The paradoxical combination of focusing like a laser on businesses’ bottom-line while simultaneously casting a broader light on the importance of embracing the interconnectedness between business, humanity, community, and the natural world will not only ensure an organization’s near-term survival, it will position it to grow and thrive across generations.

Jack’s stories, insights, and core message will awaken his audiences to new ways of seeing, hearing, feeling, and thinking, as well as empower them to work toward the creation of a more beautiful future for themselves, their families tion of a more beautiful future for themselves, their families, their companies, their communities and, ultimately, the world.

How to Think Like a Futurist

The average lifespan of a Fortune 1000 company is 15 years–and dropping. Why is this happening? Primarily, it’s because companies are so focused on the present, they fail to appreciate how the world of tomorrow is changing. Smart companies hire futurists to survive. Wise companies learn how to think like a futurist and instill a “future mindset” throughout their organization.

In this interactive, engaging and educational seminar, best-selling author and renowned global futurist Jack Uldrich will instruct you and your team on how to “think like a futurist” and “future-proof” your organization in the process.

Specifically, you will:

  • Understand the trends transforming the world of tomorrow and learn how to become aware of what is coming next before your competitors;
  • Develop an appreciation for both why humility is critical in navigating the uncharted waters of tomorrow and why unlearning will be as important as learning in the future;
  • Learn how to take action in the face of uncertainty, ambiguity, and rapidly changing conditions;
  • Most importantly, you will adopt the mindset and acquire the tools to begin creating the future yourself.

–International Dairy Foods

What pleasure to have worked with you over the past few weeks culminating in today’s fantastic presentation. The feedback from our colleagues has been a mix of “OH MY GOD” and “THAT’s SO COOL” and “Where do we even begin?” – exactly what we wanted to accomplish today. You helped us set the stage for the team as to why we need to keep our eyes open, and not be blind to the change coming and the opportunities that these changes could represent for us should we be willing to have a “beginner’s” (aka learner’s) mindset.

–Pfizer Essential Health

To say that Jack was a homerun as a keynote for our Better Ways Healthcare Conference would be an understatement! We typically have our team provide a rating on their experience and Jack scored a 10 out of 10. Our team characterized him as insightful, thought provoking, authentic, fun and energizing. As an organization, Vynamic truly appreciated the time that Jack took to understand us and what we were trying to achieve with this conference. He adeptly wove key themes into his key note that carried forward throughout the conference. We look forward to working with Jack again in the future and introducing him to our clients in the healthcare industry. We went through a very thorough process in vetting a keynote speaker and Jack was the perfect fit!
