Tagline: Strategy Futurist

Keynote Topics

An overview of the most disruptive decade in history. Why is this the most disruptive decade?  What is going to happen between now and 2030?  What are the major dynamics, the ascendant trends, and how will they change our realities. 

This decade is and will be one of the most important historic transitions in all of history. 

What was is fast giving way to what will be.  This is Houle’s most popular keynote topic, based upon the book series that has already become a much discussed series about our collective future.

“This high-level long-range presentation looks at the two trajectories now facing humanity today.  Which one will we take, the long-future of 100,000-200,000 years or the short one of 100-200 years? 

The next few decades will determine this and what we do in the next few decades will determine which trajectory we will be on. This presentation looks at Climate, Intelligence, Population, Capitalism, and Consciousness and the unlimited potential on one trajectory and probably extinction with the other. 

This presentation is what you want if the goal is to provide your attendees with a mind-bending look as to what lies ahead for those alive today.

We have entered the Age of Intelligence here in the 2020s.  What will it look like?  When will the tipping points occur?  What can AI do now and what will it be able to do in the future?

What can we do to insure a true and safe partnership between  Technological Intelligence and Human Intelligence?  Any new and significant technology always disrupts the existing reality. 

How will AI alter our reality 10,20,50 years out?  This presentation offers insight to this and will leave the audience with expanded minds.
