The 1996 Into Thin Air storm claimed the lives of 11 climbers and was the worst catastrophe in the history of Everest. Paul Deegan, who was on the mountain when the storm struck, vowed never to return. Yet eight years later, Deegan broke his promise and made a final attempt to reach the top of the world. Why did Deegan go back? How did he overcome extreme self-doubt about his chance of survival? And after such a long hiatus, would he be able to fulfill his lifetime ambition? During this presentation, Deegan reveals a trick of the mind to reduce the fear of failure, how a rocking chair can help you make your next big decision and why the best way to achieve an ambition is to forget about it.

At the turn of this century, most people thought there was nowhere left on Earth to discover. Then Paul Deegan organized an expedition to an unexplored range of mountains. Members of his team made ascents of previously unclimbed peaks, saw snow leopards and camels and encountered nomadic communities who had never met people from outside the former Soviet Union. To prepare for this groundbreaking enterprise, Deegan drew on his experiences as a leader and team member on expeditions to Alaska, the European Alps and the Himalayas. In this presentation, Deegan explains why he ensures that every member of his team is more talented than he is, illustrates his philosophy of invisible leadership and describes why there can be no room for passengers on any team.

Blockchain technology is often compared with the Internet and the impact of it is expected to be even greater. We are already witnessing how it is radically transforming the world and have realised that it is not just a toy for geeks, but an efficient tool which can be deployed by financial institutions, businesses, governments and individuals. But how does it actually work? Dr. Julian Hosp, one of the world’s top blockchain experts, will explain the basics of blockchain, why it's the beginning of a new era and what profound possibilities it can bring to society and economy. It is his mission to help people all around the world to become #cryptofit for the new decentralized world. Are you ready to join the revolution?

 

 

The World Economic Forum predicts that 10 percent of the global GDP will be stored on the blockchain in less than 10 years. In terms of today’s global GDP that would be $7.8 trillion. Here a challenge arises: If we do not find a way to connect blockchains, these $7.8 trillion will be dispersed in such a way that its true value is a lot lower. So what's the solution? Dr. Julian Hosp talks about why it’s necessary to connect blockchains without creating a new larger blockchain and potential solutions for mass-crypto adoption.

 

 

Blockchain technology is already marching confidently across all the industries. People have started realising that it is not just a toy for a bunch of hackers, but a powerful tool which has the potential to be deployed by financial institutions, businesses, governments and individuals. Dr. Julian Hosp will talk about the potential of blockchain technology to establish a new decentralised economy, how to accelerate that process and adapt to it.

 

Talent is the most decisive asset of a company, regardless of the industry and market it operates in. HR Managers at rapidly growing startups not only need top talent, but they need it quickly. Recruiting a lot of people in a short timeframe can only be made possible by instilling a creative and efficient recruitment process. By finding the right strategy, TenX, a Singapore-based blockchain leader, was able to grow from 8 employees to 60 in just half a year, without relaxing its hiring standards. Dr. Julian Hosp will share his competitive approach to successfully recruiting top talent, right alongside the big players. You will learn:

  • How to identify and tap into the best talent pools
  • The trade-offs in tapping into global talent pools vs local talent pools, where recruiting and integration may be easier
  • The right weight to put on relevant experience vs. cultural fit
