After months of preparation, the time had come: the first Future Management Day in Istanbul took place. Dr. Kadri Bahsi of the Grundig Academy Istanbul had developed an impressive programme in cooperation with the Blockchain Center of the Frankfurt School and CHAINSTEP. After excellent lectures in the morning (my highlight: Chris Stephenson) four parallel sessions took place in the afternoon: Finance, Healthcare, Energy and Transport Logistics. The first two sessions were conducted by the Blockchain Center Frankfurt, the other two by CHAINSTEP. The feedback of the almost 50 participants was clear: continuation wanted.
