Strategies for Public Sector Transformation 2000
September 26-27, 2000 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
A formidable business thinker and passionate speaker, Alvin Toffler's global audience impact comes not simply from spotting changes in advance or projecting unrelated trends, but from setting them into a coherent intellectual framework, providing readers and listeners alike with powerful tools for thinking about and preparing for the future.
From Silicon Valley to Wall Street and Washington, from Tokyo to Singapore and Seoul, Toffler's books and lectures have given advance information and powerful new ideas to the change-makers who are defining the early 21st century.
His books include such classics as Future Shock and The Third Wave, as well as Powershift, War and Anti-War and most recently, Creating a New Civilization. Toffler's books have added numerous words to our language from the "third wave", and "demassification", to the "electric cottage", and "overchoice". The term "future shock" is now firmly imbedded into the dictionary.
