Charles Reed Anderson & Associates, Singapore
“I’m honoured to have been selected to be the Conference Chair for IoT Asia 2017. While I present at up to 50 events per year, IoT Asia has become my favourite as it brings together key industry players from across the IoT Ecosystem as well as leading government and enterprise customers. I’m looking forward to helping the team at IoT Asia enhance the event format to ensure IoT Asia 2017 not only lives up the the success of the previous year’s events, but also attract a wider, non-technical audience that are increasingly having to confront the challenges and opportunities created by IoT."

He is renowned for his thought-provoking presentations that not only deliver insights on the latest industry trends, but also provide guidance to both technical and business-minded audiences on avoiding the potential pitfalls of IoT solution deployment.
