Mark Mills: Technology and the Future: The '20s Will (Yet) Roar
The Challey Institute is hosting a presentation by Mark Mills, as part of the Menard Family Distinguished Speaker Series and co-sponsored by Dakota Digital Academy.

The late great management consultant, Peter Drucker, said he only predicted "what's already happened," which is great advice for technology forecasting. Drawing from his new book, "The Cloud Revolution: How the Convergence of New Technologies Will Unleash the Next Economic Boom and a Roaring 2020s," Mills cuts through the fog of hype to illuminate what's coming next, despite the (inevitable) chaos afoot in the world. Following his presentation, Mills will answer questions from Menard Family Director Dr. John Bitzan and the audience.
