Submission Summaries

Keynote speakers

Be uplifted, motivated and inspired by thought leading keynote speakers during our awards ceremonies.

Alyssa Carson

Youngest astronaut in training. MARS ONE ambassador

Alyssa Carson took her childhood dream of space travel to a different level. Today, at 19 years old Alyssa is the youngest astronaut-in-training and is preparing to be the first human on Mars. In this fascinating interview we will explore Alyssa’s views on everything from gender equality, what it means to truly “change the paradigm”, preparing for risk to how she keeps her sights unwaveringly set on Mars.

Jose Arrieta

Former Chief Information Officer & Chief Data Officer (former) at U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

WorldCC wishes a warm return to Jose Arrieta Innovation and Excellence Award winner and a fierce proponent of technology. Until just over a month ago Jose was Chief Information Officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We will hear about what the last 9 months working at the cutting edge of the COVID-19 response effort has been like, we’ll discuss decision making in times of crisis as well as José’s views on contracts being viewed as techniques not products.

Mark Beer, OBE

Lawyer, Futurist, Transformative Influencer in Legal and Justice 

Beer’s reputation within the legal and business community is nothing short of remarkable. Twice named as one of the 'Top 50 most influential Brits in the UAE', and Forbes Middle East ‘Top 50 most influential expats in the UAE’, Mark was appointed an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in the Queen’s Honours List for his work in strengthening relations between the UK and the UAE. Described as brilliant, honest, charismatic, and eloquent, and someone who is seen as having boundless, optimistic energy – we’ll ask Mark his views on the future of legal and justice, and what an overhaul in legal and technology would look like - focusing into his experience in shifting corporate models to on-line dispute resolution.

Niall Dennehy

Niall Dennehy, Chief Operating Officer & Co-Founder, AID:Tech 

WorldCC have been following International award-winning start-up AID:Tech and the phenomenal work they have been doing for some time. The company was originally set up to leverage blockchain technology to increase transparency, eliminate fraud corruption and solve money flows of international aid and welfare to some of the world’s underserved populations. A true example of innovation for social good, we are excited to be in conversation with Co-Founder Niall Dennehy whose mission it is to give end beneficiaries dignity through digital identity.
