NFTs are Non-Fungible Tokens are cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin or Ether (ETH), but they only represent/deal with one item each - hence "Non-Fungible." The NFT system allows people, for the first time in Internet history, to buy and sell unique objects (like digital art, collectibles, games, or land). If you have never heard of NFTs, or this is new to you, or you know a little about it but want to know more and want to invest, but don't know where to start - or maybe you've already invested and got burned and want to do it right.


Paulette Watson will show you everything you need to know about the world of NFTs, how to invest, and how to make money safely and avoid losing it to scams, hacks, and destructive projects. You will learn the basics and navigate your way through this space. NFTs are one of the most exciting innovations in history and will change the world


Speaker Bio 


Global Evangelist Tech Disruptor + Digital Transformation Consultant 


Paulette’s expertise ranges across non-executive director (NED), strategic planning, organisation design, digital transformation, and leadership development. Her industry experience encompasses technology, software architecture design, professional services, engineering, financial services, people management and organisation development.

She spent nearly 12 years working with students from disadvantaged backgrounds as a computer science teacher, Head of E-learning, and Director of Information Communication Technology (ICT). The experience has helped her in the role of Managing Director of Academy Achievers and as a Digital Transformation consultant. She understands how to examine the mental inequality in education and is set on developing #BeMe digital inclusion road map to digitally include young females. Using her community projects, she analyses the mental inequality in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and explores the real-life experiences from females unfair and bias treatments from the school system (being excluded) and now that facial recognition has severe biases.
