Keynote and Panel Specialities

Blockchain ‘Ask Me Anything’

This is a great way to pitch the delivery to the level of the audience. As understanding of blockchain technology increases, balancing a presentation between 101 and expert, and between technical aspects and business applications, is a tricky task. I am confident in the breadth, depth and currency of my knowledge and can manage quick-fire questioning.

Emerging Technology Application in Industry

Want to understand the impact of emerging technologies on a specific industry, to reassure and inspire an audience? I have delivered talks and webinars for industry groups including the British Computer Society and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, focusing on blockchain, Internet of Things and machine learning / AI / robotics.

Do you really need a blockchain?

Drilling down through the hype to real decision criteria, drawing on 30 years of business experience. I have worked with several organisations over the past three years who have approached me with a problem to solve or a vision to realise, and I have advised on appropriate technology and assisted in the development of blockchain applications. I am currently an advisor to blockchain startup eBudz.
