Some have described it as the fourth industrial revolution: when technology becomes embedded in society. Others talk about the new digital economy where technology starts governing, assuring and auditing itself. But, increasingly, there’s agreement that the enabling technology will be blockchain.
In our first Blockchain Masterclass on October 12th in the City of London we’ll discuss how this incredible technology has the potential to create trust, and assure value, in financial services. New trust-based platforms are being created across industries – but especially within the financial sector. Many believe that this new model of central governance via blockchain will define new paradigms of business computing over the next 10-15 years.
The Masterclass will draw upon a core team of blockchain experts who are already delivering blockchain implementations and pilots across financial services, insurance and public administration. The masterclass will be an ideal immersive session for technology transformation strategists, product specialists and innovation leaders. It will allow companies to get deeper insight into how creating value-centred processes could improve business and citizen experience.
- Our masterclass leader for the day will be Seamus Cushley, Director, EMEA Blockchain, FinTech & Digital at PwC.
- Guest speakers will include Marcella Atzori, a blockchain governance expert and an academic researcher, currently affiliated with the University College of London’s Centre for Blockchain Technologies; Janina Lowisz, CMO of Cashaa, will provide an overview of a new P2P marketplace for international money transfer using cryptocurrency. We’ll be announcing many more speakers and contributors over the coming weeks.
- The event Moderators will be Jeffrey Peel, Editor of Citizen2020 and Managing Director of Quadriga Consulting; and Nic Stirk, CEO of SLA Digital.
The event will be held at Allen & Overy, London on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Lunch, and refreshments throughout the day will be included. The hotel is situated right in the heart of the city of London.
