Blockchain is the Operating System for the Future
Welcome to the Bank of You
Decentralized Industry 4.0
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.

Over the past few decades, the globalization of supply chains has gone from being a radical outlier to a commonplace. The simplified version of the story runs that, as communications technologies connected us globally, and transport technologies enabled the shipping of parts, local supply chains morphed into global ones. Now, we think nothing of purchasing electronics from Japan, avocados from Mexico, and toys from China in a single visit to the supermarket. Supply chains as we know them, however, are changing due to geopolitical tensions and tariffs, pandemics like COVID, fragmentation of people and communities, and emerging technologies. We are seeing something new. The demand chain. Read More >

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.
"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?"
"Thank you for bringing your thoughtful and highly customized talk to Whirlpool. It’s clear that you listened to our objectives and direction and I know it was no small effort to incorporate it all into your talk. All in all, it was the most coordinated effort between the speaker and our Company that I’ve seen. And it showed during the workshop process and resulting ideas."
