MINNEAPOLIS, July 9, 2018 - When it comes to future-proofing your business, Global Futurist Jack Uldrich advises, "To change the game, you need to experiment and take risks. And when those experiments and efforts don’t pan out, start unlearning from your mistakes and keep moving forward. It's better to stumble forward than not move at all!"

Uldrich regularly speaks to a wide variety of audiences, including industry associations, health care professionals, corporate executives, government officials, and manufacturers. His topics range greatly, but his presentations and seminars always include trends and technologies that are transforming the future of business. These include machine learning, the internet of things, 5G wireless, nanotechnology, blockchain technology, wearable computing, and additive manufacturing. In addition to specific trends, Uldrich also helps attendees "think like a futurist" and be better prepared for living in a future filled with rapid change.

Uldrich, who is the founder of The School of Unlearning, dedicates himself to helping businesses, governments, and nonprofit organizations prepare for and profit from periods of profound transformation.

New advances in technology bring forth exciting discoveries every day. But often lost in this new reality is the fact that organizations must unlearn old, obsolete knowledge and old ways of doing business before they can seize tomorrow's opportunities.
