The Urban Land Institute (ULI) has selected Paul Saffo, a highly respected forecaster of large-scale, long-term change as the 2016 Trends Day Keynote. Governor Doug Ducey and Arizona State University President Michael Crow will also lead compelling discussions centered on Arizona’s future.
Saffo teaches at Stanford University and chairs the Future Studies and Forecasting track at Singularity University. His essays have been published in the Harvard Business Review, Fortune, Wired, Newsweek, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
