MARKETORDERS COO GETS COVERAGE IN CRYPTO MEDIA FOR HER ADVISORY ROLE ALONGSIDE THE MAYOR OF LONDON

London Mayor Enlists Blockchain Entrepreneur into City’s New Skills Business Partnership  

 

The Mayor of London chose the Market Orders co-founder to become a part of a handpicked group from across London’s businesses in a partnership that will enable him to recreate the city’s skill system. The initiative hopes to better the needs of employers in the face of Brexit challenges and continued automation, according to a report from The Fintech Times.

Blockchain Bestselling Author

Sukhi Jutla is a renowned entrepreneur who has authored three books which made global headlines in April 2018. She then became a top-selling blockchain author and earned a spot among the U.K’s top 100 Women in Tech besides being named a Top 100European Digital Pioneer by Google and The Financial Times.

Commenting on her appointment, Sukhi stated:

“I am proud to be representing the voice of entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially those working in frontier technology areas such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to ensure we create a suitable and responsive city-wide skills system for all Londoner’s.”

 

The partnership is meant to appraise the Mayor on skills and education provisions in assisting businesses to access talent, especially in response to a new set of challenges facing the city like Brexit and automation. The mayor plans to publish a new Skills and Employment Vision later this year.

 

Mayor Sadiq Khan said:

“In June 2018, my Skills for Londoners (SfL) strategy laid out my ambition to create a city for all Londoners, in which everyone can access the skills they need to succeed in a thriving economy. Today I’m delighted to announce my new Skills for Londoners Business Partnership.”

 

Deficiency in Numeracy and Digital Skills

The Skills for Londoners (SfL) program is the first dedicated post-16 skills and adult education strategy produced by a London Mayor. It sets out the skills challenges London faces, along with priorities and actions required to make the London skills system the envy of the world.

Key priorities include empowering all Londoners to access the education and skills to participate in society and progress in education and work, meeting the needs of London’s economy and employers now and in the future and delivering a strategic city-wide technical skills and adult education offer.

According to the Mayor, many Londoners lack access to the opportunities that the city provides as a result of low levels of qualifications, particularly in literacy, English language, numeracy, and digital skills.

According to recent research by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), only three percent of people in the UK have ever bought a cryptocurrency while an entire 73 percent of the population has never heard about cryptocurrencies or how to define them, even as a UK MP vouches for payment of taxes in crypto.

London calling for blockchain entrepreneur

 

The Mayor of London has handpicked a blockchain author to join an elite group of key influencers selected from the city’s businesses.

MarketOrders co-founder Sukhi Jutla was chosen by mayor Sadiq Khan to be part of the group charged with shaping London’s skills system.

Jutla – an award-winning entrepreneur and author of three books – made headlines a year ago by becoming the first number one best-selling author covering blockchain.

She was also recently named as one of the UK’s Top 100 Women in Tech, and was listed as a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google.

Proud

“I am proud to be representing the voice of entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially those working in frontier technology areas such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to ensure we create a suitable and responsive city-wide skills system for all Londoners,” she told Coin Rivet.

“The Business Partnership will play an essential role in ensuring that London’s economy is responsive to the changing skills landscape, especially when it comes to the digital and technological shifts occurring.”

The group will be expected to advise the mayor on how skills and education provision can help businesses access talent, particularly in response to a range of challenges including Brexit and increasing automation.

It is understood the mayor will publish a new ‘Skills and Employment Vision’ document later this year, which will be closely linked to his ‘Local Industrial Strategy’, due to be published at the same time.

The mayor, Sadiq Khan, explained his Skills for Londoners strategy in 2018 laid out his ambitions to “create a city for all Londoners” by granting access to skills for anyone who needed them.

Talent

“Involving London’s employers and businesses to meet this ambition is at the heart of this, and I’m delighted to announce my new Skills for Londoners Business Partnership, made up of leading figures from businesses of all sizes and sectors, who share my passion for supporting London’s talent,” he explained.

“I look forward to working with them as they play a central role in our efforts to maintain London’s global position as a great place to work, invest, and grow a business.”

The Business Partnership will play a key role in shaping both documents, which will set out the next steps for delivering on the mayor’s priorities such as new policies to address emerging challenges, and will make the case for more funding to be devolved to London.

Other key appointments to the group are Rajesh Agrawal (Deputy Mayor for Business and Chair of the Business Partnership), film and TV executive Nahrein Kemp, Aurea Jones of Barts Health NHS Trust, and Optimity founder Anthony Impey MBE.

Blockchain Entrepreneur Joins The Mayor’s New Skills Business Partnership

Blockchain entrepreneur and MarketOrders Co-Founder, Sukhi Jutla, was recently chosen by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to be part of a new group of leading figures from across the capital’s businesses. This new partnership will help him shape London’s skill system to better the needs of the capital’s employers.

 

A Blockchain & Tech leader

Sukhi Jutla is an award-winning entrepreneur and author of 3 books. She made global headlines in April 2018 when she became the World’s First #1 Bestselling ‘Blockchain’ Author. She was recently named as one of the UK’s top 100 Women in Tech and was named a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google.

Sukhi commented: ‘I am proud to be representing the voice of entrepreneurs and small business owners, especially those working in frontier technology areas such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to ensure we create a suitable and responsive city-wide skills system for all Londoner’s.’

A partnership to empower Londoners

The Partnership will also advise the Mayor on how skills and education provision can help businesses access talent, particularly in response to a range of challenges including Brexit and increasing automation. Sukhi explained: ‘The Business Partnership will play an essential role in ensuring that London’s economy is responsive to the changing skills landscape, especially when it comes to the digital and technological shifts occurring.’

The Mayor will publish a new Skills and Employment Vision later this year, which will be closely linked to his Local Industrial Strategy (which is due to be published at the same time). Sadiq Khan, said: ‘In June 2018, my Skills for Londoners strategy laid out my ambition to create a city for all Londoners, in which everyone can access the skills they need to succeed in a thriving economy. Involving London’s employers and businesses to meet this ambition is at the heart of this: I’m delighted to announce my new Skills for Londoners Business Partnership, made up of leading figures from businesses of all sizes and sectors, who share my passion for supporting London’s talent. I look forward to working with them as they play a central role in our efforts to maintain London’s global position as a great place to work, invest and grow a business.’

The Business Partnership will play an essential role in shaping both documents, which will set out the next steps for delivering on the Mayor’s priorities, new policies to address emerging challenges, and will make the case for more funding to be devolved to London.

The Mayor believes a city-wide skills system that is responsive to the needs of London’s economy is crucial to meeting the needs of employers and residents. The need for such a system has been made particularly acute given Brexit and the government’s recent Immigration White Paper, both of which risk undermining London’s growth and access to a future pipeline of talent from Europe and around the world.

The Partnership – which met at City Hall for the first time this week – aims to:

  • Improve London’s skills system to better meet the needs of employers, businesses and the London economy
  • Increase skills investment and workforce development in London’s industries to meet the demands of the global economy
  • Improve information and data on skills needs from employers and ensure the most accurate/reliable data is used to inform skills provision
