David Zach is one of the few professionally trained futurists on this planet, having earned a master’s degree in Studies of the Future from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Of course, this was way back in the 1980s, so it’s pretty much history by now. Since then, Dave has worked with over 1400 associations, corporations and colleges offering insights on the personal and professional impact of strategic trends. In other words, he gives funny and thought-provoking keynote speeches on the future of technology, economics, business, education, demographics and society.

You won’t want to miss him this year at the Illinois Commodity Conference where he will take you across the threshold into tomorrow.  In doing so, he will address what needs to be done to look forward and watch our step, while also looking back and never forgetting the best of what got us here.  As one of the very few professionally trained futurists on the planet, Dave will take you on an adventure into tomorrow as he blends the funny with the profound to help you decide what really matters. At the end, you’ll find yourself either thoughtfully quiet or engaged in some of the best conversations you’ve ever had at a meeting.
