Kate Baucherel

Digital Strategist at Galia Digital Ltd

Billingham, England,, United Kingdom

I’m a keynote speaker, author of fiction and non-fiction, and experienced digital strategist specialising in blockchain and cryptocurrency.

My books include 'Blockchain Hurricane: Origins, Applications and Future of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency' (BEP 2020), the 'What's Hot in Blockchain and Crypto' series, and the SimCavalier cybercrime thrillers. Over the past 30 years I have held senior technical and financial roles in businesses across multiple sectors including utilities, manufacturing, leisure and software, leading several enterprises through their start-up and growth phases. My interest in tech was sparked when working for an IBM business partner in Denver, back when the AS/400 was a cutting-edge piece of hardware and the World Wide Web didn’t exist.

I graduated in business from Newcastle University and I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. I am an Associate Lecturer at Teesside University in both the Business School and School of Computing. I'm also a 2nd Dan in karate. I live in the UK with my husband and two children.
