Beth Shah_Derivatives Geek_Episode 55

I first met Beth when she setup my interview with her boss Blythe Masters for the FemTechLeaders interview series.  We quickly found out we have a shared love of the English Premier League (Beth supports Southampton and I’m, of course, am an Arsenal fan).  I also rapidly learned how talented she is and how well she has learned to navigate the ever shifting waters of the blockchain space when it comes to finance.

And she is also the only person I’ve met so far who loves to talk about derivatives (she was a former derivatives writer).  Either that or she knows that will kill any conversation with me as I’ll just get bored.

Sebastien Meunier_The Trend Spotter_Episode-19

“What’s next?” is one of my personal favorite tag lines came from the character of President Bartlett in The West Wing.  I imagine this thought is constantly running through the mind of Sebastien Meunier’s from the consulting firm Chappuis Halder & Company.  He is considered to be an active thought leader on everything from blockchain use cases for Financial Services to InsurTech.

And he speaks at least 5 different languages and is learning Mandarin.  We need to find him another hobby.
