Neil’s Hard Talk – Neil speaks to Lionel Hackett from WiseCrowd

On the pilot episode of ‘Neil’s Hard Talk’ Neil interviews CEO Lionel Hackett from WiseCrowd. Lionel speaks firstly about WiseCrowd and how they are a trusted online platform connecting freelance consultants, specialising in governance risk and compliance with businesses, mainly focussing on financial or fintech businesses that have short-term requirements.

Lionel then speaks about the challenges of cyber security information and how threats keep growing on businesses large and small. The conversation changes to GDPR, new regulation coming into force next May. Lionel explains how some businesses are making the right preparations, but some are not even aware. This provides an opportunity for WiseCrowd’s consultants for them to offer companies support and relevant advice to move forward.

WiseCrowd is an early stage startup who want to build a relationship with their clients to help them understand how the platform works to help understand the features that they want.

Neil sums WiseCrowd up as; ‘Uber for skills in fintech’
