“I found the session to be a valuable use of my time. The group of peers was a breath of fresh air, bringing different angles from different industries. The topics were spot on, and we could easily go on with discussion even longer than that. It is a relief to get the validation that we all are facing the same challenges, and working on the solutions with different approaches… I would be keen to have a follow-up meeting with the Merkle team and continue the discussion”
