Alvin Toffler cont'd

Alvin Toffler is the keynote speaker for the Stategies for Public Sector Transformation 2000 conference to be held September 27, at the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria, B.C.

Alvin Tofler is closely studied by CEO's and senior financial leaders as well as by presidents, prime ministers and top government officials, his work won the McKinsey Foundation Book Award for Contributions to Management Literature, among many other prizes. Political figures ranging from Mikhail Gorbachev to Newt Gringrich, media leaders like Ted Turner, as well as military and management strategists everywhere, repeatedly cite Toffler's ideas as they prepare their organizations and countries for the 21st century.


As early as the beginning of the 1960's, Toffler foretold:

  • The explosive rise of the computer. He wrote and lectured about PC's, electronic "agents," virtual reality and today's electronic networks decades before they appeared in the marketplace.
  • The VCR years before it had a name
  • The Internet, when its forerunner had only 700 people on it, and Toffler was on it and telling the world about it.
  • The coming of cable television, when it was still widely assumed "advertisers would never back cable." Ted Turner has publicly credited Toffler with inspiring him to launch CNN.

Toffler has anticipated and influenced many aspects of business and daily life in the '90s as well. He lectured about niche markets long before the term was invented. He wrote about the acceleration of change, the shift to work-at-home and temporary help services in 1970. He identified the move to demassified media as early as 1961.

Toffler's best-sellers have influenced (including Clinton's "a bridge to the future" campaign slogan) and the Republican Congress, as well as the shape and structure of many global corporations.

Toffler has served as a Visiting Scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation, a Visiting Professor at Cornell University, a faculty member of the New School for Social Research, A White House Correspondent, an editor for Fortune magazine and a business consultant.

He holds honorary degrees in letters, law and science -- and in management science from Keio University in Tokyo. In France, where Toffler's work has won the prestigious Prix du Mellieur Livre Etranger, he has been named an Officier de L'Ordre des Arts et Lettres. He is a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
