Announcing CAHR19 Keynote Speaker Amber Baldet, Blockchain Expert
FORMER BLOCKCHAIN PROGRAM LEAD AT JP MORGAN
Meet the missing link between Wall Street & Crypto Hackers: Amber Baldet
Tech Leader, Entrepreneur, CEO of Clovyr
If HR is the last place you’d imagine impacted by blockchain, think again. Who says HR is stuck in an analog world? Blockchain its a widely discussed but often misunderstood technological advancement that could have an enormous impact on HR.
This buzzword you’ve been hearing about is only going to become more relevant and important to grasp – and it will certainly impact the human resource function in ways we both can and cannot yet predict.
That’s why we’re so excited bring Amber Baldet, former blockchain program lead at JP Morgan & CEO of Clovyr, to the CAHR19 Main Stage as our Closing Keynote Speaker! Amber Baldet is a decorated tech leader, having been named as one of CoinDesk’s 10 Most Influential in Blockchain, and a recipient of the Microsoft Award for Corporate Innovation.
In terms of blockchain speakers, Amber Baldet offers unparalleled insight. “The work I did at JP Morgan exposed me to a breadth of perspectives,” she told Glamour for its feature, “Cryptocurrency is Not Just a Boys Club.”
Those perspectives come from working with investment banks, central banks, Fortune 100s, corporations, startups, cypherpunks, hackers, and hardcore blockchain developers. “I have a relatively unique view on where we are going.”
A member of Fortune’s 40 Under 40, Baldet was named to The New York Times’ list of “People Leading the Blockchain Revolution” for her “unusual ability to bring together the corporate and hacker camps.” She’ll look at what blockchain means for your company, and explain how “an internet of value” may disrupt the global economy while making life better for everyone.
Amber Baldet is that rare blockchain speaker who brings clarity—and personality—to these important, often opaque, new technologies. Baldet has presented at SXSW, MIT, Wharton, Harvard, Cornell, EthCC, Defcon, Money 20/20, Consensus, and other venues.
Prior to the startup world, Baldet led JP Morgan’s Blockchain Center of Excellence—one of Wall Street’s first high-profile initiatives to harness blockchain technologies. There, she helped develop Quorum, which “has since become one of the most popular places for corporations and governments to start building blockchain projects” (Times).
Now, Amber Baldet is the CEO of Clovyr. Think of it as an app store for various, competing approaches to blockchains, helping consumers, developers, and businesses explore blockchain-based, decentralized technologies.
Who better to lead us into the implications blockchain technology will bring to HR – from a compliance perspective, to HR process-disruption, to HR innovation – than someone with so much experience translating tech jargon into everyday language?
