Businesses and organisations today encounter a myriad of challenges in an increasingly complex and interconnected world, from reducing their carbon footprint to increasing performance to remain competitive in a world constantly under threat of cyber attack and data breaches, these challenges can hinder growth and innovation.

Who is this Workshop for?

This workshop is for private sector and public sector organisations across Cardiff Capital Region, including:

  • Business leaders prioritising areas such as supply chain, circularity, Net Zero compliance, and digital records.
  • Decision makers focused on technology, digital transformation, and data.

Remaining competitive, especially for organisations operating in or seeking to operate in a global market, requires at a minimum, accurate blockchain awareness, if not adoption.
