Speaker Interview: How do tech experts RECHARGE in their private time?

Work, work, work... Every day we're pre-occupied with work, but TGIF . I hope you have a well-planned weekend (although doing nothing and staying at home is a good choice too).

'Refill Their Tanks'
In this week's issue, we chatted with a handful of our speakers, revealing how they make time to recharge their mind, body and soul amidst their busy schedules - as I'd like to call it 'refill their tanks'. I hope you can get inspired as well.  


Richard Li
Senior Regional Sales Engineer
Carbon Black

diapersAs a father of two kids, Richard makes time for himself to watch movies, TV shows, read books, play Nintendo Switch with his boy, or change diapers for his 2-month old daughter... :)

An experienced tri-lingual professional engineer, Richard will share with our audience a powerful analysis of the latest attack trends seen by the world’s top incident response (IR) firms. Even as a steady drumbeat of headlines keeps the world's attention focused on cybercrimes, such as #ransomware and #cryptojacking, in the dark corners of the internet, attackers are busy refining their craft.

Richard will be speaking on…

Derek Judge

screenwritingAs a member of the Screenwriters Association in Singapore, Derek prefers to refill his 'tank' by writing screenplays. It's great to be able to escape into alternate worlds for him, and he's even written scripts for Singapore's media company, Mediacorp!

What is your hope and dream in tech? What's the next big thing?

“My hope and dream for the tech industry would be automated analytics on more data, in real time, in order to bring people together and improve lives; and the next big thing in the technology landscape - deep learning on GPUs.”

Derek will be speaking on…

foodKumar shares that he would either watch a movie or listen to music to recharge himself. He also loves cooking and finds it very relaxing. If his schedule permits, he would go on a long drive and eat Indian street foods available in Dubai.

The next big thing in the technology landscape?

“This new age has been blessed with disruptive technologies and I am very excited to be a part of this renaissance.
