The EU IoT Council (where I am a member) a closed think-tank IoT thought leadership group, started IoT day five years back to encourage people to come together in small groups to exchange ideas, educate, develop standards and build out the IoT ecosystem.
I am used to keynoting at conferences charged by the energy of the audience. I decided to try something different with the onset of IoT Day - online radio, podcasts, webinars where I have to listen and engage the audience without seeing them. Its been a fun!
1. I joined as a guest at the radio show SoSoShow with Ken and Carol. You can listen to the episode where I talked about IoT here. (This is "What is IoT and whats the future discussion' for social media listeners)
2. VoiceAmerica Business Channel Talk Radio with Bonnie Graham
The show was about "Internet of Things with Game Changers"Bonnie is amazing and drives the conversation to keep up the charge in the air.
Topic: Higher Education and Digital Transformation: Impacting Business and LivesGuests were Dr. Vince Kellen the Senior Vice Provost, Analytics and Technologies at the University of Kentucky, Puneet Suppal, IoT Evangelist of SAP and yours truly!

3. April 6 2016 : Brightalk Webinar with Natascha Thomson
We talk about data from IoT devices and so many possibilities but Marketers haven't joined the IoT party. Yet. Today we had an open honest conversation on whether IoT was hype or real. Guess what was my answer. Yes and No.
Its part hype because everything is bucketized as IoT and there are many areas of IoT with some growing slowing with challenges of privacy, security and lack of standards. Some areas have already taken off with ROI like Industrial IoT and others innovating and getting there such as Connected Cars and Digital Health driven by Wearables.
Listen to the webinar here (This is demystifying IoT for Marketers)Natascha summarized the tweetchat of the webinar here
JC Giraldo, one of my listeners pleasantly surprised me with the summary of the webinar learning as a post here.
