Blockchain Enters The Boardroom: How Decentralized Applications Will Shake Up The C-Suite
The Conference Board of Canada, March 20, 2019 at 2:00 PM ET
Live Webinar by The Conference Board of Canada
A recent article on Forbes called 2019 ‘the year of enterprise blockchain.’ Yet a study from consulting firm Deloitte showed 39 per cent of executives felt the technology has been overhyped.
This debate hasn’t stopped companies like Mercedes-Benz to JP Moran from investing heavily in their own blockchain projects, and more are to come. Even if some companies don’t pursue the technology today, they may soon be surrounded by other organizations who offer blockchain-based products and services that will have an impact across many common business functions.
This April 15-16, the Conference Board of Canada will continue to lead a national conversation on these issues with Blockchain Summit 2019: The Strategic Roadmap For Canadian Business Leaders. Get an early look at the trends informing our agenda on March 20 by joining our conference chair, Shane Schick, for a 30-minute Webinar where we’ll cover the following:
- Blockchain and the CFO: Leading the finance function with smart contracts, stronger security and new ecosystem partners
- Blockchain and the CMO: Building a stronger brand experience by empowering customers with data
- Blockchain and HR: Nurturing an engaged workforce with processes that put people first
- Blockchain and the CIO: Delivering higher ROI for IT investments and eliminating business silos
- Blockchain and Sales Execs: Reducing fraud, offering greater transparency and a trustworthy set of numbers
