Navigator joins Blockchain Research Institute, launches Banking on Blockchain podcast

Today, I’m pleased to share with you the news that Navigator becomes the first public affairs firm to join the Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), an organization conducting ground-breaking research on the impact of blockchain technology on business, government and society.

At Navigator, we never stop investing in our team and in our craft. We take pride in being on the cutting edge of technology, and developing proprietary solutions our clients simply won’t find elsewhere. We study and learn from other markets and evaluate emerging capabilities in our industry to offer clients a full suite of tools to help them win.

We are proud of our work to date with clients in emerging sectors, including the sharing economy, artificial intelligence, and cannabis legalization. For us, supporting the BRI in their work fits with our ongoing drive as a firm to push boundaries and help our clients succeed. We cannot risk seeing our clients fall behind the coming wave of disruption, nor remain in the dark regarding all of the benefits such a technology affords.

The BRI’s co-founder Don Tapscott is a visionary in this regard. Canada is poised to become a global leader in this space, but many challenges lie ahead. By joining his initiative, we will have a front-row seat to understanding all of the coming industry transformations, ranging from financial services to energy, from health care to retail services.

To celebrate this landmark occasion, Navigator is launching today a new podcast production, Banking on Blockchain. Each week, we will be sitting down with top experts in the field who will guide all of us to a deeper understanding of the technology and how it’s changing the way we do business in Canada.

As we speak with industry players, regulators, and researchers throughout the series, you’ll find out why so much of the innovation in this space is occurring right here in Canada under our very noses. We bring those stories right to your door and hope you will join us on this journey.

I encourage you to follow the link to listen to our first episode, subscribe to the series, and leave a review on iTunes or SoundCloud.

For all questions pertaining to our blockchain work and podcast, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

I’m excited about the promise of this new technology, and look forward to hearing your feedback on our latest production.
