We sometime get chances to evangelise our businesses. In early 2013, Joe Decuir, from our Global Standards team, was appointed a Distinguished Lecturer by the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society. His talk is titled “Bluetooth Reinvented. Smart connectivity in consumer devices: Bluetooth Low Energy Standard and its Applications”. The first scheduled discussion was at the Bangalore Chapter last week, hosted by the India Institute of Sciences. Follow up visits are in discussion with IEEE CES chapters in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Hsinchu, Seoul, Osaka and Tokyo.
Successful technical presentations have four elements: What is this? How does it work? What is it good for? Where can I learn more? The presenter wins if the audience comes away thinking that the topic deserves follow up attention. At least 150 people showed up for this presentation. The questions were fun. There were two demonstrations: a tracking demo (fixed by CSR India staff) and a Fitbit One.
Two awards were presented: for the presentation and a commemorative medal from IIS. The latter is now on display in the front office of CSR India.
There will also be a corresponding article submitted to the IEEE CES Magazine this year.
Congratulations to Joe!
