Best of #SNIC19 Webinar Series

Learn how to separate the “hard trends” that will happen from the “soft trends” that might happen in this thought-provoking session with innovation expert Daniel Burrus. As presented at #SNIC19, Burrus will explain what it takes to accurately anticipate technology-driven disruptions before they occur, prep to meet customer needs before they express them, and identify game-changing opportunities for school nutrition programs.

Technology-driven change is growing exponentially and has created a unique tipping point, one filled with both disruptive problems, as well as amazing opportunities for the school nutrition marketplace. New tools and strategies exist that can transform the customer experience, grow brand loyalty in fresh ways, increase student engagement in school meal programs and accelerate positive results across all areas of your business.

Daniel Burrus’ accurate predictions date back to the early 1980s. He was the first—and only—futurist to accurately identify 20 technologies that would drive business and economic change for decades. Since, he has continued to establish a worldwide reputation for his exceptional record of forecasting the future of technology-driven change and visioning its direct impact on the business world.
