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.

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…

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. Innovation is happening at a tremendous speed which no one in the mankind has ever witnessed before.

    Director, Fintech & Crypto, PwC Singapore
  • As the COO in one of the biggest insurance companies in Japan, I’ve arranged my team to take turn to come visit across these two days to get the latest industry knowledge. Because of my role, I am particularly interested in the risk management and security sessions. What we’re appreciated the most is that we can source a variety of content at one place, including solution providers, end-users and those institutions [IASA, ISC2 etc.]. It is very comprehensive.
    COO, Tokio Marine Insurance Group
  • I’ve never visited an event of such massive scale featuring some of the most amazing brands and speakers here. I learnt a lot from attending the sessions like blockchain, digitisation, logistics and customer experience. I am very impressed with the breadth of the topics covered all under one roof over two days. I’ve also met many new suppliers I’ve never knew before and got to establish contact with them now. Coming to this event has given me so much value.
