Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New Orleans, LA - Dec 14, 2016 - The beginning of the twenty-first century has been inundated with exponential leaps of technology, and growth (think: FaceBook, Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Genomics just to mention a few.) Therefore, it’s not always easy to keep in mind that heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration were similar leaps of the early twentieth century.
Global futurist and keynote speaker Jack Uldrich likes to help keep his clients aware of the past so as to propel them into the future with greater confidence and awareness. He does that with a variety of keynote addresses and workshops.
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.
After several months of back to back engagements across the country, today, in New Orleans, Uldrich will be addressing a leading international HVAC manufacturer, rounding out his speaking events for 2016.
His manufacturing clients include the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), Stiles, Siemens, the IBD, Emerson, ABB, Honeywell, Trane, Eaton, and the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI.)
He 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.
In his keynote today, Uldrich will address how manufacturers can start future proofing themselves by embracing a variety of trends like the “Internet of Things,” Big Data, 3D manufacturing, nanotechnology, robotics, radio frequency identification (RFID), Technology, social networking, and wearable technology.
A lover of paradox, Uldrich says in one of his latest articles, “If we want to create a better future for ourselves and our community, we must embrace this idea of being uncomfortable — or what I call ‘getting into the discomfort zone.’ And, to do this, it is helpful to remember that stress is not a universally negative trait. In fact, there is a word for “good stress.” It is called eustress.”
“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.”
As the year wraps up, Uldrich will begin taking his time to reflect and write his annual articles on the top technological advances for 2017 along with his tongue in cheek predictions for the coming year.
