Digital Assets Workshop in partnership with Centre for Finance Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE)
We keep hearing about Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, DeFi, Metaverse, NFT, Stablecoins, but what do they mean exactly? Are they the building blocks of a new way of doing finance, or is it purely a market driven by speculators? And how do we get into it?The main purpose of this workshop is to help participants demystify the world of digital assets while understanding what skills are needed to really be part of that space. In this workshop attendees will get the chance to engage with the content through interactive questions and activities.
Rules to Power a Stablecoin Driven Future Economy
It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate ourselves in the workplace. Does having a good education guarantee us a good job? Does having loads of knowledge lead to career satisfaction? Whatever mindset we have in the workplace, directly translates into how we carry ourselves, navigate relationships, manage stress and ultimately plays a big role in how we are perceived by peers and leaders. This session will equip participants to build an agile mindset, demonstrate agility in the workplace and understand the path to organisational agility.
