Biography

Don Tapscott

Author of Blockchain Revolution and CEO
The Tapscott Group

Don Tapscott, CEO of The Tapscott Group, is one of the world’s leading authorities on the impact of technology on business and society. He has authored 16 books including Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything, which has been translated into over 25 languages.

Don has been advancing groundbreaking concepts for over three decades. His 1992 bestseller Paradigm Shift helped coin the seminal management concept, and in 1995, his book The Digital Economy changed business thinking about the transformational nature of the Internet. Two years later he helped popularize the terms “Net Generation” and “the Digital Divide” in Growing Up Digital.

Don’s most recent and perhaps most ambitious book is co-authored with his son, startup CEO and bitcoin governance expert Alex Tapscott. Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology behind bitcoin is Changing Money, Business, and the World has been a bestseller in Canada since its release in May 2016, and has been featured in nearly every major publication in North America since then. Blockchain Revolution is also in the process of being translated into 12 languages. 

In 2015, Don became a member of the Order of Canada, and was ranked the 4th most influential management thinker in the world by Thinkers50. He is Adjunct Professor at the Rotman School of Management, an Associate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and Chancellor of Trent University in Ontario.

It is hard to imagine anyone who has been more prolific, profound, and influential in explaining today’s technological revolutions and their impact on the world.
