“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
-- John M. Richardson, Jr.
 
The rate of change that both customers and businesses have to deal with today, is nothing short of phenomenal. Now imagine the world that the children of today and your customers of tomorrow are going to grow up in… 
 
Delving into the Net Generation and the Next Net Generation, this keynote is a trip into the future, through the eyes of the children that will grow up in it. Part inspiring, part scary - Future Kids Future Customers is an in-depth examination of how our culture will become affected by the technology around us and the social and market changes it is causing. It will make you re-look at your business model, re-examine your customer service strategy, re-invent your products and re-convene your strategy team.

The future waits for no one. Better to be prepared.
