Unlearn the future: Morris Miselowski

Morris Miselowski urges you to unlearn the future and to discover infinite possibilities through the eyes of a business futurist. Among the world’s leading futurists, he predicts that by 2020 over half of the workforce will be doing tasks that don’t exist in industries that haven’t been created yet and that technology is benign until you place it into the hands of a person.

He translates his experience into strategies that enable businesses to prepare for the evolution of their industries. Morris has analysed the retail sector and proposed that we’re living through a transitionary phase between physical and online retail. His clients have included NAB, Mercedes Benz, RMIT, Ernst & Young, Phillips and Toshiba. Morris is the founder and chief strategist at Success through Focus.
