Events, dear boy, events

As someone who organises events for a living, I always enjoy the ‘luxury’ of attending, speaking and being an observer at other people’s events. Not only is it a great way to get ideas for new speakers, different topics and new ways of running my own events (they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery) but it also allows me to take my ideas to a bigger audience and increase my own network. You just never know who will be sitting in that audience.

So far this year I have been honoured to be asked to speak at The Economist’s ‘Finance Disrupted’ event on a panel about – you guessed it – Blockchain, as well as to take part in a webinar for Ogilvy on Blockchain and Healthcare. You can find summaries of these events here:

Coming up later in the next few months I’ll be speaking at the Financial Services Forum’s Blockchain breakfast event (https://www.thefsforum.co.uk/knowledge-centre/event/fintech-event/) and taking part in a joint event with Apple Fundraising on Blockchain and the Future of Philanthropy (https://unblockedevents.com/events/blockchain-future-philanthropy/) and, no doubt, other gigs as yet to be confirmed.

We aim to be a resource for good quality education about this topic so if you are looking for a Blockchain speaker for your event or would like a recommendation for an expert in a particular aspect of Blockchain, drop us a line at info@unblockedevents.com.
