Technology Forum - 180227

Bitcoin – What is Cryptocurrency and what does the future hold? Presented by Neil Rivenburgh Sr. Manager, Business Intelligence, Philips

PMI Atlanta Technology Forum provides an environment for Project Managers to adopt and benefit from the latest technology in their professional life and career. The forum also plans to bring speakers to discuss & share the best practices in technology.


Bitcoin has captured the attention of everyone and has increased in value at dizzying rates. Now it seems to be coming down to earth. What is it all about? Where did it come from? Are cryptocurrencies the new golden ticket or over-hyped scam? Should you put money into them or is it too late?

Learn how the concept came into being, how is it different than money, how to get started in investing, the intricacies of the marketplace, and what the future holds. 




Neil has been involved with technology and innovation for nearly 25 years.  After consulting in Japan, he returned to get his MBA from Georgia Tech.  He has held technology management positions with UPS, BellSouth, and Philips.  His team at Philips builds innovative solutions to help automate and run various parts of the company.  He played a leading role in the growth of Big Data/Business Intelligence consulting firm Technovative.  He has advised several technology start-ups. 


Light refreshments and beverages will be provided.
