Iliana Oris Valiente

Managing Director Accenture


At Accenture, Iliana Oris Valiente leads the innovation strategy for Canada and also leads our blockchain team; working with senior clients to support their transformation journeys.

She brings together specialists in design, data science, emerging technologies, along with diverse industry experts to inspire change and bring actionable insights forward towards proof of concepts, pilots, and beyond.

She has been involved in the blockchain industry for many years and has overseen business and technology teams in building enterprise-grade solutions that leverage DLT (distributed ledger tech) to transform status quo processes across financial services, supply chain, and public sector domains.

She is a published author and a frequent speaker at global conferences. Iliana is also been called a "corporate matchmaker" on many occasions - bringing multi-stakeholder groups to the table to drive collaborative results.

She also founded ColliderX, a network to connect technical R&D experts focused on blockchain. Prior to that, she co-founded Rubix by Deloitte and was the Blockchain Strategy Leader at Deloitte Canada.

As a personable finance professional turned intra/entrepreneur, her strengths include the ability to combine strategic thinking and an aptitude for working with numbers and concrete data. As a naturally curious individual, she has a strong sense of adventure and thrives in fast-growth environments. She speaks English, Russian, Spanish, and French, and is well-traveled with international work and life experience.

Keeping her up at night are exponential tech, social innovation, the business case for change, start-up innovation, and public policy.

In her spare time, Iliana enjoys yoga, tea, books, travel, golf, running (incl. 2 half marathons), and meeting inspiring people. She is the original co-founder of Club Wise, a member-driven scotch club that donates all proceeds to local charities.
