Jack Uldrich, a renowned global futurist, speaker, and author of 11 books, will keynote the 124th International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) and World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) Convention & Expo, to be held April 26 – 29, 2015, in Orlando, Florida at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek & Waldorf Astoria Orlando.
Uldrich’s speech, “Foresight is 20/20, based on his book, Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow, will explore what the world of 2020 might look like and how cold storage companies and their leaders can respond to the inevitable business changes that will occur.
“No one can predict the future, but understanding rapidly emerging technological trends can help companies and their executives prepare for it,” Uldrich says. “We live in an era of unparalleled change, and I look forward to providing critical foresight needed to create a successful future.”
Corey Rosenbusch, President and CEO of IARW and WFLO, explained, “Our convention theme is ‘Delivering Value,’ and Uldrich’s insights are critical to helping cold chain logistics companies ensure that they continue to provide value during the coming decade. We look forward to hearing this analysis of emerging trends and how our industry can prepare for them.”
The keynote presentation will take place on April 27 during the Opening General Session from 8:30-10:15 a.m.
