💯 100 Days to Offload

This article is one of a series of posts in the 100 Days to Offload challenge . The challenge focuses on writing frequency rather than quality, and so posts may not always be fully planned out. They are simply a way to offload thoughts.

Wales Tech Week is an annual event held by Technology Connected. The 2021 event is running this week, aiming to bring technologists together from a wide range of businesses and organisations across Wales.

Today, I was a member of a panel discussing blockchain - "Welsh Businesses Bringing Blockchain to Life". I was speaking alongside experts from other companies working in the blockchain and crypto space, and an academic focused on applying the technology to government functions.

It was a great opportunity to talk about how we are using blockchain at Simply Do to power some of our complex supply-chain processes, and to also hear about the exciting work from the other panellists.

The panel was excellently chaired by David Blake from the Development Bank of Wales. They are one of our investors and have been of great help and support to us over the past few years.

I look forward to continue watching the events over the next couple of days.
