Your Financial specialist in Digitization and Blockchain
Why Blockchain For Financials?
The personal drive for me comes from an aspiration to make organisations more productive and the financial professionals even more relevant. Most organisations spent too much time on administrative and bureaucratic activities. Also within Finance, the professionals spend a disproportionate time on designing, operating and fixing (financial) processes, with a great focus on control and compliance. Though control and compliance is and will always remain important, it goes on the expense of spending valuable time on really supporting the business. My aspiration is that by properly implementing new digital technologies like Blockchain, the organisation and the financial in particular will become more effective and can spend a greater proportion of his time on business development and support. The other drive for applying new technologies is the belief that applying new technologies successfully can lead to more productivity, freeing up time to create a more sustainable world.
