"It is always amazing to listen to the countless examples of applications and solutions Charles has picked up through his interactions with the IoT industry’s movers and shakers. Especially impressive is his ability to crystallise large amounts of information into actionable insights for the benefit of his clients. If you need somebody to make sense of the IoT, Charles is your guy."

Thomas Jakob Regional President Asia Pacific, Bosch Software Innovations

"Charles and I have worked together in two capacities, the first being an adviser to me regarding IOT and the second as a keynote speaker at events that Samsung facilitates. Charles is without a doubt the go to guy for IoT. His knowledge and understanding is second to none. He's an excellent public speaker also and a great guy to top it off."

Verdon Kelliher Director of Strategic Innovation, Samsung

"It is rare to come across an IoT “thought leader” who not only understands the latest technology trends and their impact on the global and Asian markets, but also has the ability to explain them in a simple and powerful way. Charles’ pragmatic approach to explaining how the latest IoT trends and technologies will impact the business and operating models of companies across the IoT ecosystem allows him to deliver realistic, actionable insights to his audiences. Charles is without a doubt the best IoT keynote speaker in the market."

Silvia Yu CEO, Red Peak Asia

"During Acer’s “New Si-Vilization” event in Taipei where Charles was a keynote speaker, Charles demonstrated not only solid knowledge on the subject of Smart Cities through the application of IoT, but also a strong vision on the developments in this area. Charles turned out to be a charismatic speaker, able to capture the imagination of our audience on what the future in our cities behold for us"

Maarten Schellekens VP Global Marketing & Branding, Acer

"Charles brings a refreshing perspective to the world of IoT and is not taken in by the hype. He is often a contrarian and in a market driven by hype, this is stimulating. Charles presents his findings with detailed quantitative research and knowledge that goes beyond your typical analyst. His understanding of the market from “sensors to platforms” is unparalleled in the analyst world. Charles would be my "go to" guy for market perspectives on IoT."

Saj Kumar Head of IoT & Digital Transformation, SAP Asia

"Charles is definitely the thought leader on IoT, mobility and digital transformation in Asia Pacific who I typically check in with. He has a strong understanding of the global business & execution models that relate new technologies to digital disruption and how these apply to the Asian market. His analytical and foresight to think a few steps ahead are essential to businesses like ours that are looking to increase their value to customers. He is a great professional and I highly recommend working with Charles."
