Keith Smith: Future Shock

In the 1960’s author Alvin Toffler began discussing the theory of Future Shock, a human condition brought about by the rapid change of multiple areas of life; business, domestic, familial and financial.

How prophetic his subsequent book ‘Future Shock’ turned out to be.

The 21st century is seeing a manifestation of all the things that Toffler predicted – and then some! Included in his predictions is the paralysis felt by decision-makers and a failure to move with the shift in process.

In this show, Keith Smith, host of The Fuel podcast, highlights some of the words of wisdom from previous guests to illustrate the point that while we may all be facing Future Shock, it’s always possible to immunize yourself from it.
