Web 3.0 has collided with financial services and the movement towards decentralised infrastructure continues to accelerate. Decentralised finance has the potential to transform every financial transaction and to reach individuals and businesses traditionally excluded from the financial system. Ultimately, Web 3.0 will shape new business models, enterprises, careers and the new digital economy.

Much of our world today is powered by science and technology, and COVID-19 has further accelerated the pace of change. There is much more we can and must do as we recover from COVID-19. Where we stand now, several forces are converging – embracing an era of greater innovation, the determination to build back stronger in a post-crisis world, and the urgency to deal with global threats. Our efforts in the next few years will determine the trajectory of humanity for decades to come. We can collectively do much more to amplify the impact of innovation, and channel the momentum of change to build a better world. The speech will cover how can maximise the impact of innovation in this period of rapid change.
