Facing Emerging Technologies with Dr. Mike Petty & Scott Schnurr

With new technologies constantly in development, the face of business is ever-changing. Understanding that is critical to your business’ future. Amazon’s executive team lives in the future, you need to live there too. If you only live in the present, your business is at risk! Horses gave way to gas-powered vehicles, then to electric cars, travel agents became Kayak, taxis became Uber, Sears became Amazon, CDs became Spotify, paper books became Kindle. What will your business become if you don’t dive into the future now?

Dr. Michael Petty is currently a member of the World Future Society and The Association of Professional Futurists. He is the co-founder and consulting-futurist at Flagship Futures Group, LLC in Washington, DC. Mike brings over forty-five years of leadership, financial and strategic management experience to the table.
