Saint John’s Prep Alumnus Releases New Book

Futurist Jack Uldrich ’82 Explores Ways to Face Uncharted and Unpredictable Times

In his new book, Business as Unusual: A Futurist’s Unorthodox, Unconventional, and Uncomfortable Guide to Doing Business, Saint John’s Prep School alumnus and global futurist, Jack Uldrich ’82, succinctly delivers ten Big AHA (awareness, humility, and action) ideas focused on helping business leaders and organizations navigate tomorrow’s uncharted and unpredictable waters.
No one can predict the future; but Jack Uldrich can help you prepare for it. Jack is a leading futurist, author, and speaker who helps organizations gain the critical foresight they need to create a successful future. His work is based on the transformational principles of unlearning–or freeing yourself from obsolete knowledge and assumptions–as a strategy to survive and thrive in an era of unparalleled change. Jack argues that creativity and action are more powerful and versatile than knowledge.
Jack is a prolific speaker on technology, change management and leadership and has addressed Fortune 100 corporations, venture capital firms, associations, not-for-profit organizations and state and regional governments on five continents. He regularly makes television appearances on the Science Channel’s “FutureScape” program and the Discovery Channel show “Inside Out,” and is a frequent guest on major media outlets, including CNN, CNBC and National Public Radio. Jack is also an ongoing contributor on emerging technologies and future trends for a number of publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Wired Magazine and BusinessWeek.
Jack will be the first to tell you that his days at the Prep School helped prepare him for his life’s work, which is one of the reasons he is looking to give back to a place that means so much to him. Jack has offered 100% of the profits back to SJP! In addition, Jack has offered to host a virtual event to discuss the book with the Prep School community on DATE TBD. To participate, please register and a link to participate will be sent to you the week of the event.
Jack’s new book will be available for purchase on Amazon beginning today, October 14. We would love to help Jack get his new book into the Amazon #1 Best Seller list! So, today is the big day, specifically between 6-9 pm CST because of the way Amazon rankings are calculated.
This is a great way to not only expand your mind, but also a way to give back to Prep!
