Simon Dingle

'Money is the most important human invention after language’, says Simon Dingle, our Cape Town keynote speaker for Day 2.

Bitcoin, smart contracts, blockchain technology, all sound a little cryptic to you? ‘We’re all beginners in this, it’s simply new’ says Simon.

Expect a lively presentation outlining what the new era of money means for you and your business, delivered by a guy who says that ‘Talking about stuff in public is almost my favourite thing’.

Simon’s experience ranges from broadcasting to strategy and finance.
He is a product expert that has had three apps in the top 10 of the finance section on the App Store.
