Sample Presentations

Blockchain Hurricane

We introduce the concepts of blockchain, distributed ledgers and crypto assets, in as much detail as the audience requires. We illustrate the use of blockchain in enterprise and show how the technology is already improving processes and delivering enhanced trust and transparency to businesses, consumers and regulators across the world.

Key takeaways:

  • A greater understanding of blockchain as a transformative technology
  • An appreciation of the range of applications, from supply chains to gaming, from fintech to government
  • Decision tools for blockchain implementation

Innovation for Growth

Businesses are always looking for that edge to grow or even to survive, and increasingly the difference is made by adoption of emerging technology, whether in products, business processes, or communication with markets. What tech is coming along in the next decade, and how will it impact business?

Key takeaways:

  • One decade's emerging technology is the next decade's indispensable, everyday tool
  • Innovation triggers and the importance of problem solving
  • Insights into automation, from centralised Robotic Process Automation to decentralised Smart Contracts, and the role of AI and the Internet of Things.

Cybersecurity Fact Through Fiction

Stories provide a base layer of understanding in a way which can and does influence behaviour. Kate Baucherel tells how a planned cybersecurity text book became a series of cybercrime thrillers, and discusses the communication skills that professionals can harness to improve cybersecurity education.
