The Hammond B3 organist in the band Men in Suits, Don also happens to be one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impacts of technology. He is Founder and Chairman of the Global Solution Networks program and CEO of The Tapscott Group, a think tank that regularly advises business and government leaders around the world. Don has authored or co-authored over 15 books on the digital economy. He serves as an Adjunct Professor at the Rotman School of Management, the Inaugural Fellow of the Martin Prosperity Institute, and Chancellor of Trent University.

In July 2015, Don was inducted into the Order of Canada in recognition of his “leadership in the field of business innovation and research on the economic and social impact of information technology.”

His latest book has been acquired by Penguin Random House and will be published in 2016. The book, entitled BLOCKCHAIN REVOLUTION: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World is co-authored by his son Alex Tapscott.

This will be the first book to explain why blockchain technology – a truly open, distributed, global platform – will fundamentally change what we can achieve online, how we do it, and who can participate.
