The theme for this year’s EOH Connect Conference is Fast Data: Business at the Speed of Thought. The centre of attention at this year’s EOH Connect Conference, which will be taking place on Wednesday the 9th of May at the Sandton Convention Centre, will be data at the centre of the digital revolution. Attendees will get to hear from acclaimed guest speakers who have a wealth of knowledge. “Our line-up this year is designed to challenge conventional views about the future of data and technology. We are confident that our guests will be thinking very differently about what they can achieve for their businesses by the end of the conference,” says CEO of EOH’s ICT business, Rob Godlonton.

The Keynote speaker at this auspicious conference will be Vinny Lingham, who is regularly ranked in the top-5 most influential FinTech, Blockchain, and crypto sphere ‘insiders’ on the planet. Known as one of South Africa’s most famous technology entrepreneurs, he is nicknamed the ‘Bitcoin Oracle’ for his accurate forecasts of movements in the cryptocurrency’s price. Lingham often writes about the decentralisation of the financial industry, and the sovereignty of the consumer; he never fails to ‘disrupt’ when sharing his controversial views on the future relationship of the banking and technology industries.
