Acclaimed Futurist and DC Political Insider to Lead Annual Meeting Seminars

An early look at “The Big AHA” by Jack Uldrich and an inside look at that night’s potential political “oh no’s” by Neil Newhouse will form the unique pairing of the Annual Meeting’s seminar speakers, who will be presenting before and after lunch on Tuesday, March 1.

In what is likely to be an enlightening, entertaining and educational 11 a.m. – 12 noon session, acclaimed global futurist Jack Uldrich will share the content from his forthcoming book, The Big AHA: How to Future-Proof Yourself Against Tomorrow’s Twelve Transformational Trends, Today.

Uldrich will begin by making his RVIA audience aware of the ten trends transforming the business world of tomorrow, including the Internet of Things and 3D manufacturing. Next, he will explain why a healthy dose of humility is essential in contemplating the future; and will conclude by identifying a series of concrete actions leaders in the RV business can take today in order to future-proof themselves and their businesses against “the tides of tomorrow.”

Uldrich is the best-selling, award-winning author of 11 books, includingForesight 2020: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow. He is a frequent guest on major media outlets, including CNN, CNBC, and NPR, and an ongoing contributor on emerging technologies and future trends for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, WIRED, and BusinessWeek.

Following the lunch break, DC pollster and political strategist Neil Newhouse will share with RVIA his views on which of the presidential candidates left standing by March 1 will receive their just desserts that evening. That’s because Newhouse’s remarks will be on the very day of the so-called “SEC Presidential Primary,” when voters across 15 states, including many in the South, will be marking their primary ballots.

Newhouse will provide his assessment of the current national political environment, discuss voter attitudes on the direction of the country, review the strengths and  weaknesses of the various candidates running for President, speculate on what is likely to happen in the Fall campaign, and reflect on what it all means for our business and our nation.

Lead pollster for Gov. Mitt Romney’s 2012 Presidential campaign, Newhouse is a partner and co-founder of Public Opinion Strategies, a national political and public affairs research firm which has been described by the New York Times as “the leading Republican polling company” in the country.

Newhouse is often quoted in major national publications ranging from The Wall Street Journal to The New York Times and The Washington Post, and he has appeared as a frequent pundit on the nightly news regarding politics and campaigns
