Program Details:

Title: Blockchain for Project Managers


speaker How do we take a part in emerging industry?

“Blockchain” is one of those terms – like “.com” or “mobile” or “AI” – that everyone wants but can’t quite tell you why and don’t know how to take a part of. On one level, the Blockchain may be the most ground breaking, game changing innovation since the internet itself. On the other hand, that sounds like a lot of hype, and perhaps at this stage, that’s all it is. If that is what it is, how can project managers take a part in this emerging technology around which a whole industry is developing or should we? Perhaps understanding the technology and what is happening around it is the first step. Harumi will also help us learn how to separate the blockchain hipsters from the hypesters as more and more people try to ride this wave.

You will learn during this presentation:

  • Technology overview
  • Blockchain, job market and PM
  • How can we use blockchain?
  • Cryptocurrency overview
  • Regulatory landscape
Please join us on Tuesday, October 16 as we welcome blockchain luminary Harumi Urata-Thompson. We will pull back the curtain on the blockchain and explore the technology.

Harumi Urata-Thompson is founder and CEO of HUT Consulting. She specializes in leading and advising organizations on taking innovative paths to achieve strategic, operational and marketing success in their businesses. Currently, she is consulting to and serving on the board of directors of several companies. Her late focus has been the use of emerging technologies such as Blockchain and AI as well as Cybersecurity, Big Data and Outerspace and speaks at numerous events on these topics. She recently co-founded a space data company,

Prior to starting her own company, she was in the FinTech and investment banking industry for a number of years and held leadership positions.
