  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) October 16, 2013 - Leading business futurist Marvin Dejean has been selected to deliver Strategic Foresight Workshop at the Western Union Company's upcoming Caribbean Agent Planning Retreat on October 17th, 2013 in Miami, FL. Dejean will discuss how companies will "Innovate, Adapt & Thrive In A Rapidly Changing World". His presentation will focus on the emerging trends that are reshaping the business landscape in the 21st century and what successful companies must do to reinvent their business model from the inside out.

    "No business, no matter their size or history is immune to the enormous and rapid changes that are occurring in the marketplace. The convergence of technology, business innovation, workforce decentralization and the Internet of Things (IOT) is rewriting the rules of the game and sweeping away entire industries and creating new ones. The smart organizations have their eye toward the future and are envisioning how to create lasting and sustaining value for an increasingly sophisticated consumer." states Dejean

    Using market analysis and strategic forecasting, Dejean creates scenarios that showcase both hidden opportunities and unforeseen threats to companies and verticals based on emerging technological, societal, political and demographic trends. Through his workshops and executive training sessions, Dejean helps organizations think differently about their business models and how to grow by leveraging changes happening in the marketplace.

    "I am honored to having been chosen to speak for an amazing company such as Western Union. Their dedication to fueling global economic growth and innovation is unparralled in the financial services industry. The mere fact that they are thinking about the future emphasizes how critical it is for any company wishing to remain a leader in their space to begin thinking about how to capitalize on the rapid changes occurring in the marketplace. This simple mindset is what will separate great organizations from their competitors in the years to come" states Dejean
