Blockchain 101 Monday 8th April, 2019

Blockchain 101

The Association was delighted to again partner with management consultants Pathfinder for an evening event devoted to the very topical subject of Blockchain. Expert speaker Derek Counihan provided a detailed introduction to Blockchain as a disruptor technology, covering various customer models and organisational capability requirements.  Unsurprisingly, questions from the audience were many! 

A business and technology innovator since he first started work at the age of 15 with Jerry Kennelly’s Stockbyte, which was sold in 2006 to Getty Images for $135m, Derek purchased his first business aged 22. At 25, he started his first technology company which enabled media organisations and brands such as Bacardi, One Stop and Qatar Airways to monetise digital audiences. Acknowledged as one of Ireland's ‘Top Thirty Under Thirty’ entrepreneurs in 2013, and one of four regional winners of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur in 2016, Derek recognised early the importance of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency to next-generation business models.

The event took place in Pathfinder's offices in  Mount Street Lr, Dublin 2 and carried 1 hour CPD credit. 

Our thanks to Pathfinder for supporting this event.
