I’ve been asked to keynote this event on March 30th. My session description: “We live in an era of unprecedented and relentless change. The emergence of China as a super-power; hyper-innovation and business market turmoil; constant career change and rapid scientific advances. Competition is changing overnight, and product lifecycles often last for just a few months. Permanence has been torn asunder.

Join international futurist, trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll, as he shares his insight into the key methods by which organizations are leveraging technology in order to compete effectively in the rapidly changing economy of the 21st century.”
