Being Boy Future, I often get asked by people of all types, “What do I need to know to stay ahead of the future?” Of course, it’s much more of a rolling answer than it is a one-time rebuttal.
But, when the African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin asked me to give the keynote presentation at their annual Breakfast of Champions at the historic Harley-Davidson Museum – on the topic of the very question I opened this email with – I knew I had to come up with something both timely and timeless.
The result is my 5 Plays for the Future, which provides three lessons that can be applied across any time period and two relevant technological opportunities that have emerged and will be ripe for at least the next decade and a half.
