Leading technology forecaster Daniel Burrus reveals predictable changes business leaders need to shape their strategies at the Chamber’s 60th Annual Dinner

(Madison, Sept. 26, 2012) – Imagine if 10 years ago you knew smartphones were coming. Or online sales could surpass in-store shopping. Would companies have changed their business plans? Should organizations be planning today for the iPhone 5 or looking ahead to what iPhone 8 will do to their business strategy?

Nationally renowned keynote speaker, Daniel Burrus, will reveal these types of predictable changes and how they need to affect strategic plans to nearly 1,000 business leaders at the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce’s 60th Annual Dinner. The rapid growth of big data, cloud services and virtualization are just a few of the technology-driven trends Burrus forecasted for 2012.

“Daniel is a phenomenal speaker who really challenges the way you think and see the world,” says Jennifer Alexander, president of the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce. “Many of his ideas have stayed with me since I attended a presentation of his years ago. We’re thrilled to share his insight on the Greater Madison area with our business community.”

Burrus – a Wisconsin-native, a student of UW-Madison and CEO of Burrus Research – is considered one of the world’s leading futurists on global trends and innovation. The New York Times has referred to him as one of the top three business gurus in the highest demand as a speaker.
