Tim Goggin to Present on Blockchain at Seattle Technology Summit

 The CEO of Sappington will be speaking at the annual conference for senior-level IT leaders on June 7, 2018 on the practical, real-world applications of Blockchain


SEATTLE (June 4, 2018) – Discussions around the use of blockchain and cryptocurrency in business are growing. According to an article in Fortune, the number of mentions by corporations have skyrocketed over the last seven years, and references to cryptocurrency in corporate communication doubled from 2016 to 2017.

While the buzz increases, the number of practical applications in the real world are few, according to Tim Goggin, CEO of Sappington. Technology and business leaders are still working to understand what blockchain is and how to apply it.

On Thursday, June 7, 2018, at the Seattle Technology Summit, Goggin will deliver a presentation that aims to cut through the clutter and provide practical, real-world use cases for how to make use of blockchain. The title of Goggin’s presentation is “Blockchain – Let’s Get Real.”  

The Seattle Technology Summit is hosted by the Society of Information Managers (SIM) Seattle and is a gathering of leaders, professionals, and academics working in the IT field. The event will look at emerging trends and provide insights into innovative leadership skills in today’s fast-paced digital age.

“Blockchain is a tremendous business opportunity and those that take the time to look at the technology with a mix of aspiration and realism will win,” notes Goggin. “I believe that now is the time to make it tangible and applicable, and to present how it truly supports what business and technology leaders are looking to accomplish.”

Goggin joins other speakers at the Seattle Technology Summit from companies such as Bridgestone Americas, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Starbucks, McKinsey & Company, Oberto Brands, Recreational Equipment, Inc., and others.
