Here’s some fun – a client had me write up a new topic description and topic focus that would take a look at the trends around us today that are taking us to tomorrow faster.
As we spoke, I had them watch the Spock video on my Web site (below) and they loved it! That got us talking further around the issue of accelerating change and how they needed to prepare their association members for that fact. Which, of course, led to a discussion of the broad range of trends, technologies, ideas and scientific advances that are bringing the world of the Jetsons – that 1960’s cartoon TV show, set in the year 2016 — to our world sooner than people thought!
And we settled on a really cool keynote title.
So here it is! Have at it, and consider it for your own association or leadership event.
Keynote: The Jetsons Have Arrived 50 Years Early: What Are YOU Going to Do About It
We have a new vocabulary! Self-driving cars, 3d printing, crowdfunding, the sharing economy, blockchains, personal drones, swarmbots, smart dust, vertical farms, Internet of Things, cognitive computing, smart factories, bi0-connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, bio-engineered body parts, quantum computing, intelligent farms, smart clothing, hyperconnected drugs, active packaging.
What seemed to be science fiction just a few short years ago has become a reality today, as time compresses and the future accelerates. George Jetson lived in the future, but the future is here now.
Take a voyage with Futurist Jim Carroll into the world of tomorrow, today, as he outlines the key trends, technologies, ideas and initiatives that are transforming our world around us at hypersonic speed. A world in which the medical tri-corder of the 23rd century is available today, the idea of Rosie the Robot is no longer a figment of our imagination but an emerging reality, and the flying car of the future will quickly morph into reality from today’s fast moving drone industry.
In just a few short years, it will the year 2025, and the world of tomorrow will be your reality of today.
Are you ready for what comes next?
