"Blockchain is an empowering building block for the metaverse."

How I put change in motion

As a blockchain capability lead, which is part of our Technology Innovation Group, I often get asked the question:

What exactly is blockchain—how is it used and why do we need it?

Blockchain is more than just a technology. It’s a system that changes the way ecosystem partners securely access and have ownership of shared data. It simplifies the connection between individuals and organizations to build new business and revenue models.

Blockchain and distributed systems are empowering building blocks for the metaverse. They help create digital assets and immersive content that can be used, owned, monetized, uniquely claimed, exchanged in the metaverse and exchanged for Fiat money (government-issued coin and paper currencies used throughout the world). It’s an exciting time to be working in this space.

We are exploring new ways the metaverse can help clients to:

  • Create digital assets and rewire financial services.
  • Make central bank digital currency a reality.
  • Create and use digital identity.
  • Use blockchain and multiparty systems for greater efficiency, transparency and sustainability for global supply chains.
  • Innovate new energy-transition solutions to help focus on a sustainable future.

There are so many opportunities every day at Accenture to meet new people and learn new things that keep you at the forefront of what’s next. I love that we can influence the future with our work in technology innovation.

A day in my life

It never gets boring, as no two days are ever alike! My daily planner often includes a broad spectrum of projects, such as:

  • Building assets and accelerators to jump-start our clients’ journey when building solutions at scale.
  • Providing deep technology expertise as we explore and advise clients on their journey to the metaverse.
  • Joining forces with other teams within Accenture to learn and create market-leading solutions.
  • Developing and delivering training on technologies capabilities.

The flexibility at Accenture and my love for what I do enables me to enjoy my work and personal passions. I spend a lot of time with my family, and I love playing football (the real football—soccer) with my sons. Luckily, both my sons play; unfortunately, they are better than me.

“We can influence the future with our work in technology innovation.”

My advice

Be open minded. Be thoughtful. Be creative. Be crazy. Listen, learn and don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are great people willing to offer advice; working in technology—and in the metaverse—is a team sport!
