Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the first edition of a brand new series. Over the coming weeks, we will introduce the members of the Parksen Advisory Board. By highlighting their experiences, accolades and achievements, we aim to illustrate in which ways they can contribute to the success of the Parksen Green, Smart and Connected City Platform.
Introducing today’s advisor: Simon Cocking.
Simon is a veteran journalist and proven entrepreneur. He is currently active as Editor in Chief of Irish Tech News, CryptoCoinNews and InvestInIT — titles that rake in over a million combined unique monthly views — and has co-founded or founded seven successful companies.
In the ICO world, Simon tops the charts as a very sought-after advisor and mentor. For three months during the first quarter of 2018, he ranked #1 out of 32,256 individuals on ‘People of Blockchain’.
Additionally, having spoken at events such as TEDx, Web Summit and other events in Amsterdam, Dubai, Kiev, Singapore, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Madrid, Tbilisi, Riga, Porto, Dublin and Helsinki, Simon is also an accomplished public speaker with a very extensive network within the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.
What is his role within Parksen?
With Simon’s assistance, we hope to set up a variety of small and larger events where we can present our blockchain driven platform. Spreading the word and engaging in fruitful conversations with potential investors, advisors and partners is extremely important. Simon’s extensive network can open up many interesting doors, and it can never hurt to have a experienced speaker to help prepare and manage such events.
What does he think of Parksen?
Simon is no stranger to sustainable projects. Having worked on environmental projects in the past, such as the Global Action Plan (or GAP), he is very excited to use his experience to help the Parksen Green, Smart and Connected City Platform become a reality.
“Having worked on environmental projects in the past, such as Global Action Plan, it is great to be able to bring that experience to this project. Parksen have a working app, a roadmap and a clear vision. Changing the world takes one step at at a time, by having proved their idea in the Dutch market, Parksen has the necessary can-do experience to expand worldwide. Change starts from the bottom up, Parksen can build a green, smart and connected city of the future. It’s an exciting project, and one to watch.”
