TRUST MEGATRENDS: A Blockchain Masterclass, London, October 12

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. The effects on financial services will be profound.

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 mutual trust.


We’ll be building the agenda over the coming weeks. Bookmark this page for the latest information.
