The rise of a technology leader : Nick Ayton… Nick Ayton and the bitcoin generation: I witnessed my dad commute for 35 years every day, missing out on so much, and as a child, I only saw him only on the weekends. The labor force has changed and big companies don’t know how to deal with it, attract and retain talent because, for this generation, working for a large company represents the ‘treadmill’ that you get on, that burdens you with financial obligations, that never stops until you retire and then die. Then we have Generation Z, they have few social skills, can’t look you in the eye and many have ‘digital dementure’ which will have a profound impact on the workforce. It is all changing before our very eyes. Technology liberates the information making everything accessible, something some states don’t like (China, North Korea) as governments that concentrate power more than the western economies (who do allow allegedly free markets to work and for some to make money) and ‘extraction economy’ preferring to keep the people dumb and in the dark as they rely on “ignorance to be strengthened” and for government, this means they embed it.
An internationally recognised tech business leader, Nick works with boards to help them overcome the complex nature of new technologies that include Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, QuantumAI, Nano Materials, VR and Blockchain, as opportunities and threats for business operating model improvement, customers and the top line growth. Nick Ayton has spent more than 4 decades in tech fields, trasforming businesses and implementing the latest tech for competitive advantage. He has the knack of making the complex feel familiar and gets to the issue quickly. He gets you thinking and helps you take action, to have the right plans in place for what is to come. Nick Ayton is currently writing a book entitled “Blockchain Design and Implementation Strategies” due to be published in 2017. Nick has published a range of White Papers and articles and is London’s correspondent for CoinTelegraph. Some of his articles include: Myths about Blockchain, 50 Shades of Blockchain, Ignoring Blockchain is Corporate Suicide, Blockchain Returns Trust, Blockchain will Change Asset Management as we know it. White Papers include Global Custody Asset Management, Insurance Claims and Marine Insurance on the Blockchain.

NickAyton on crypto app tokes : Blockchain doesn’t discriminate, treating all industries the same. But it is more destructive to some sectors more than others. Any sector that acts as a ‘middleman’ will be first to be disintermediated, a horrible expression I know, lets say ‘destroyed’ then.
