Blockchain: A Decentralized Future
This talk examines blockchain--and more broadly, decentralization--as the future backbone or “operating system” for emergent technologies in every industry, both new and old. It takes the audience on a journey from our past, present, and future operating systems, highlighting how in addition to a shift in technologies, we are experiencing a broader shift in mindset, which will change how we interact with each other, our businesses, our governments, our finances, our products, and our environment.
Leaders today are plagued by fear-based decision-making, which leads to incremental innovation, not the radical evolution required to embrace the abundance of exponential growth. This talk investigates the psychology of risk taking, emotional intelligence, and intuition for leaders and organizations in order to innovate from a place of trust and abundance, versus fear and optimization.
This talk examines the exponential shift to distributed teams and workforces and the role of decentralizing technologies such as blockchain, AR/VR, cooperative communities, and gaming in shaping the future of work or elimination of the concept of “work” all together.
This talk takes the audience on a journey through emerging decentralized and civic organizational models -- models beyond multinational corporations and nation-states, models which will carry us into the future of urban niche organizations, space colonies, and virtual worlds.
Organizations today embrace concepts such as innovation and digital transformation, but they are incremental. This talk explores the lessons learned through biomimicry and biological systems and their growing role in organizational evolution, or what I call, “radical evolution.”
This talk breaks down blockchain technology and its applications supporting global humanitarian and environmental efforts.
"Sam joined us to deliver a keynote address for Cisco Supply Chain’s 2018 Development Day, where she took the audience on a mesmerizing journey through the paradigms that have shaped distributed and decentralized computing. Her unique and engaging take on blockchain as a backbone technology for the future was a great addition to our programming and we look forward to welcoming her back again!”
“Samantha joined us for our annual CRN Trade Association Conference for Keynote address on how blockchain and other emerging technologies will impact the Supplements and Functional Foods Industry. She also facilitated an interactive, audience engaging panel covering the specifics of how blockchain directly impact and enhance the industry. Sam is an energetic, engaging, and astute speaking and I would recommend her for any event where complex technologies need to be broken down into digestible, and often fun, communications.”
"Sam is one of those rare individuals who has the ability to catalyze — whether it be an audience, her team, or her company’s customers. As a keynote speaker and panelist, she has the unique ability not only to distill complex topics surrounding emerging technologies, but also to make sense of why technologies like blockchain will impact the lives of individuals and businesses alike. She had a tough job, speaking to a room of 500+ accounting professionals on blockchain, and she didn’t cease to impress and inspire.”
“I’ve heard dozens of blockchain talks and yours was the best! It was so applicable, which is hard. Will you join our next event?"
