1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Good question. Chief editor at Irish Tech News, trying to keep up our high level of quality articles, and then also advising new, up and coming and existing blockchain companies in how to achieve successful promotion, investor leads for their crowd funding campaigns. I also help them with their overall social media strategy and content creation campaigns.
How was the last year, what worked well, what didn’t move as quickly as you would have liked?
Well the flatlining of the global crypto market didn’t help anyone, reducing investor confidence. That said the good companies with a more long term approach to it all kept working away and achieving their road map targets and goals. Also, as is generally the case, things always take longer than we would like, even when they are going well, and are more or less on course. So, while I am a little impatient sometimes perhaps, overall it was probably more or less as expected and a lot of great things were achieved. So let’s say the glass is half full.
What are your plans for the future?
To help the companies I work with to be as successful as possible and achieve all their goals. Personally to also keep working with interesting and positive projects, and to feature and learn more about green tech and renewable energy to help us all go off the grid.
What will you be talking about at this event?
To share as many useful insights as possible around how to effectively communicate and capture relevant investors attention. It is important to clearly explain what you are doing, why you are doing it, and how you plan to execute on your plans. So many crowd funding campaigns fail to get the basics right. Let alone the more subtle and sophisticated things that they can do well to differentiate themselves too.
What inspired you to attend it?
I am a big fan of many of the other speakers, and actively worked to encourage them to attend and speak at it in my role as speaker curator. I am now looking forward to catching up with as many of them in person as possible. I have also never been to Monaco before either, so what is not to like!
Would your company benefit from pitching in Monte Carlo to over 100 Investment Funds, Family Offices and HNWI?

Irish Tech News of course, but also Cryptocoin.News, Coin Telegraph, BBC, and and many more too. It is important to get your news from as wide a range of sources as possible. Confirmation bias is as dangerous as fake news.
