Speaking Session:

Trust: The Currency of the Digital Future

Wednesday, June 19 @ 11:35 AM – 11:55 AM Stage B

If data is the new oil, then trust is the currency of the future. While technology has enabled exponential opportunities to share and exchange information, it has also led to instances where information has been misused, resulting in an erosion of trust. This session will highlight how we can develop a framework for innovation in a future where trust is paramount by rooting ourselves in principles of irrefutability, authenticity, inclusivity and relevance for consumers.
