Presentation 1: Blockchain and the Opportunity for Impact
Jamie Skella – Co-Founder, Horizon State
Blockchain is much bigger than Bitcoin, and it’s poised to change the world as profoundly as the internet did. Growing up poor, Jamie has always advocated for change, because any change would likely be a net gain. This is why Jamie was so deeply interested in technology, and the future. Now, we have a technology which can create change for the lives of the poor all across the globe. In this presentation Jamie will uncover how disruption, risks and opportunities all await in a blockchain future where energy supply is being decentralised, finance is being disintermediated, and governance is becoming distributed.
Presentation 2: Cyber Governance for NFP Directors and Executives
Jason Wilk – Managing Director, Blue Zoo Holdings Pty Ltd
Technology can be an amazing enabler for all organisations, but with it comes risk and the press is awash with stories about organisations that have been adversely impacted by some Cyber event. How do NFP directors ensure that they are meeting their fiduciary duties and regulatory obligations towards cyber in a pragmatic way to ensure their organisations are cyber resilient? People talking about Cyber, at the governance level, are generally focusing on the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) line or lots of statistics to get directors to understand that this is a problem. In this presentation Jason will share how directors can leverage existing governance methods and skills they already have, but apply them to Cyber.
These presentations will be followed by a joint Q&A session with both Jamie Skella and Jason Wilk.
