Davos Recap with Hedera Independent Board Member Monique Morrow

February 1, 2023

The World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland is probably one of the most, if not the most, venerated economic events that is held on a global platform. This year’s conversation was entitled “Cooperation in a Fragmented World,” which sparked a conversation centered around continued sustainability in an innovative technological age. How did Hedera’s participation inspire curiosity and excitement on such a global platform?

On this episode of Gossip About Gossip, Zenobia Godschalk, SVP of Communications with Swirlds Labs, welcomes back Independent Board Member on the Hedera Global Governing Council, Monique Morrow. The two discuss the exciting and intense week at Davos.

Godschalk and Morrow reflect on…

  • How trust is a key differentiating factor for Hedera’s platform as compared to other chains
  • The exciting, sustainable future that the Hedera platform can bring to nations and businesses all over the world
  • How Hedera is working hard to integrate and work within individual communities at every level

“…And here you’re looking at use-cases that are quite important, a pipeline of use-cases, whether they occur at various parts of the world…things around sustainability, issues around sustainability…” noted Morrow.

Morrow is proud to help lead others in using emerging technologies to create new opportunities. Among other positions, she is currently a Senior Distinguished Architect of Emerging Technologies with Syniverse, while serving as an Independent Board Member for Hedera’s Global Governing Council.
