LES Houston Chapter presents:

Uses for Blockchain Technology

A Roundtable Discussion

Program Description

Blockchain technology has many applications including, but not limited to, Smart Contracts and Cryptocurrency. While blockchain technology provides a broad range of benefits, many organizations lack a clear understanding of its application, the risks and benefits specific to their company and industry, or the strategies necessary for implementing blockchain for optimal return.

Please join Steve McNew, Senior Managing Director with FTI Consulting for an engaging conversation about this emerging technology.

FTI's generous sponsorship of this event provides box lunches for registered attendees.
