Don Tapscott Joins Blockchain Live As Keynote Speaker
As the blockchain movement enters a new era of maturity, Blockchain Live celebrates the grafters and the successors as well as welcoming the long term sceptics and iconoclasts. From those pushing the envelope of blockchain’s capabilities to those preparing for its impact within their function and/or industry, Blockchain Live offers something for everyone. At the epicentre of the global narrative on blockchain sits the world renowned author and CEO of the Tapscott Group, Don Tapscott. And for 2019’s edition of Blockchain Live, we are honoured to have Don present a keynote presentation to our growing community.
A lodestar for business leaders seeking to better comprehend the implications as well as cut through the blockchain newspeak, Don is perhaps best known for his most recent and ambitious book “Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Underlying Bitcoin is Changing Business, Money and the World”. This seminal and enduring handbook for tech savvy CEOs was co-authored with his son, startup CEO and bitcoin governance expert, Alex Tapscott and represents the latest of his works including Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything, which has been translated into over 25 languages.
In 2017, Don and Alex co-founded the Blockchain Research Institute, whose 70+ projects are the definitive investigation into blockchain strategy, use-cases, implementation challenges and organizational transformations. As valued event partners for Blockchain Live, the BRI bring a syllabus of global expertise and business insight to the UK.
