What can you expect from a conference with Don Tapscott?

It is hard to imagine anyone who has been more prolific, profound, and influential in elucidating today’s technological revolutions and their impact on the world. Don has keynoted over 1000 conferences and is one of the few speakers to have given two TED Talks. He is an inspiring orator who is internationally renowned on the strategic impact of information technology on innovation, marketing and talent.

What has been his professional career? How has he contributed to society?

Don Tapscott dedicated most of his efforts to writing. His 1992 bestseller, “Paradigm Shift”, helped coin this seminal management concept, and “The Digital Economy”, written in 1995, changed business thinking about the transformational nature of the Internet. Two years later he helped popularize the terms “Next Generation” and “the Digital Divide” in his publication “Growing Up Digital”.

Don’s most recent and ambitious book was co-authored with his son, startup CEO and bitcoin governance expert Alex Tapscott. “Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Underlying Bitcoin is Changing Business, Money and the World” was published in May 2016 and is, according to Harvard Business School’s Clay Christensen, “the book, literally, on how to survive and thrive in this next wave of technology-driven disruption.”

In 2017, Don and Alex co-founded the Blockchain Research Institute whose 70+ projects are the definitive investigation into blockchain strategy, use-cases, implementation challenges and organizational transformations.
