The Procurious Big Ideas Summit that is scheduled to take place on September 28th in Chicago promises to bring across the pond the same energy and insights as last years event in the UK. To do this, the organizers have lined up an impressive array of speakers, one of whom will be joining me today. Over the next 30-minutes, I will be talking with American Blockchain Council Executive Director Jack Shaw, and we will be focusing on the following discussion points; 1. In a webinar last November I asked a procurement audience the following question by way of a poll; Are you familiar with Blockchain's role in the business world? Just a little more than 5 percent of those polled said yes. Two questions; do those numbers surprise you and, if we were to take the poll again a year later, would there be a notable difference regarding the response? 2. As it relates specifically to purchasing, what impact will Blockchain have on how procurement professionals do their jobs? How will Blockchain affect other professions? 3. What is the American Blockchain Council, and why is it an important organization? Be sure to visit the Procurement Insights Blog, and share your opinions on this segment or for that matter any topic using the Procurement Insights Open Talk hashtag #PIOpenTalk
