As a futurist, Thomas Frey stands shoulder-to-shoulder with such well-known contemporaries as John Naisbitt, Alvin Toffler and Ray Kurzell.
In fact, according to Google's highly prized ranking system, Frey is America's #1 rated futurist speaker.
He's also the exclusive guest on this week's edition of Monday Morning Radio.
Frey is executive director and senior futurist at The DaVinci Institute, which he launched in 1997. Among his intriguing Monday Morning Radio forecasts: As early as 2020, 40% of all jobs in America will be project-based, as the United States evolves into a full-fledged "freelance economy."
Moreover, many of these project-based workers will locate and affiliate in so-called Business Colonies, where assignments will be carefully meted out to those with highly specific skill sets.
While heads of state and Fortune 500 CEOs regularly consult futurists, Frey is an advocate of using his skills - including 15 years at IBM as an award-winning engineer and designer - to benefit small business owners and entrepreneurs.
p.s. In case you're not already impressed, Frey qualifies for the elite Triple Nine Society, representing those few among us with I.Q.s above the 99th percentile.
Frey is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart and wealth management expert David Biondo. Dean and David are co-hosts of the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
