The level of stress and anxiety gripping our country isn't a mirage. It’s real. Climate change, technological revolution and social upheaval are real life factors that have real life consequences. As a Futurist, I see these and other things coming and how they will directly affect our quality of life. I also see the opportunity for us to chart a new, more empowering and inspiring life for ourselves so that we have the tools to provide that vision forward for the people we serve. From my life of success, bankruptcy and recovery, to my vision quest to the Kalahari Desert, to speaking at the UN, let me share the trending data and my very personal stories for an inspirational event.
Chet was the keynote speaker for the Bellwood (IL) Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Business Leadership Summit. Chet’s message was not only inspiring, engaging, and informative, it was a thought provoking message that challenged the audience to take notice and prepare for the major shift that’s taking place in the marketplace. Many business owners in the audience were inspired to position their businesses to take advantage of the opportunities this shift will present.
At our N.E.W. Connection meeting Chet pointed the way to a future of many wonderful possibilities and some challenges that we can prepare for now. Chet is a powerful and inspirational speaker who got the conversation going about how automation will change employment, energy, and transportation and how we can be a vital part of it.
Thought provoking and engaging! Chet delivers fantastic contrast to the evolution of technology taking a look into the past and forward into what lies ahead. It was a great way to get members of our group to prepare their businesses for future change that is soon to come.
