Oracle Keynote: Blockchain for Facilitating Global Trade and Supply Chains

As part of the conference, I'll be presenting a keynote session to discuss how blockchain has the potential to revolutionize global supply chains and trade practices.  It isn’t often we come across a technology that is as far reaching as Blockchain in its ability to help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.  As global trade practices become more complex, collaboration, trust and transparency will become even more essential for trading partners. It also will become increasingly imperative that we have the ability to weed out the proliferation fo fake goods that seem to flood the market in every sector, from fake olive oil to fake pharmaceuticals. 

With consumers increasingly asking for products that are produced ethically and sustainably, it’s a unique opportunity for blockchain technology. There is an incredible transformation underway to bring full transparency into supply chains. This is where value and the values of trade participants can align. In this session, I’ll review how customers have had success using Blockchain technology for to enable trusted trade practices including accelerating supply chains and authenticating products.  Join me at online at 10:05 am on May 20, 2020 at the Women in Enterprise Blockchains Virtual Conference to discuss the possibilities!  Registration for the conference is complimentary and you can enjoy all the sessions at your convenience while working from home.
