Featured Speaker
Déjà Vu and Vuja De: A Futurist Takes a Stroll Backwards into Tomorrow

Monday, November 10, 2014: 12:00 p.m.
Grand Ballroom Suite (New York Hilton Midtown)
Déjà vu, the French word meaning “already seen,’’ is better known as the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that a current event has been experienced in the past. The comedian George Carlin, however, defined vuja de as “the strange feeling that, somehow, this has never happened before.” In this entertaining, energetic and educational keynote presentation, renowned global futurist Jack Uldrich will use CAS’s centennial celebration—and the past 100 years of history—to guide CAS members into the future. Paradoxically, he will then use history to explain why yesterday and yesteryear won’t be a reliable guide to tomorrow.

Jack will also present a concurrent session called “How to Think Like a Futurist.”
