Blockchain and governance in commodities risk management

Blockchain and governance in commodities risk management

Blockchain networks have the potential to revolutionise the way parties share and agree on data in the future.

Perhaps email is not going to die altogether, but become more archaic like snail mail today. I was initially a little sceptical when I started exploring what may happen to email in the next five years until I mentioned it to my wife - she told me how just the other week she had asked her teenage niece to email her something, to which the response was "email!?

Driving success through...Policy!?

What type of policy does your organisation have for the use of Social Media? The subject of policy doesn’t need to be as dull as it may sound at first.
