Due to unforeseen circumstances, the advertised talk from Christopher Shelley was replaced with a talk from local energy and blockchain entrepreneur Neil Pennington.

We will hopefully reschedule Chris’ talk to later in the year.

Following a career in the Energy Industry including BG, PwC, IBM , United Utilities, npower, Innogy, latterly as Smart Programme Director and UK Innovation Director, Neil has for the last 3 years been involved with early stage businesses in Blockchain and Digital Identity, including micropayments, messaging and decentralised energy with Rivetz, DISC , Grid Singularity and the Energy Web Foundation. He has also been an adviser to the Fintech and Innovation-Driven Financial Services Regulatory Committee of Mauritius and a member of the Virtual Currency Working Group for the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Light refreshments will be available after the seminar from about 1pm so that participants may network with each other and talk further with the speaker.

This talk is part of the Metallurgy & Materials – Tech Entrepreneurship Seminar Series series.
