10th Meeting, AmCham Young ProfessionalsTM with special guest John Cohn, PhD, IBM, IBM Internet of Things Division

Ljubljana, May 12, 2016

»It is often true when we say that the best comes at the end. John was one of the most inspiring people that I had the opportunity to meet during the AmCham program. His positive and concise view on exponential technological development in correlation with ethical challenges has found a deep understanding within my personal aspirations and view on the world in front of us. We need to step away from the concept of fear, act playful, make mistakes and consider ourselves as a part of a group which strives to drive the society towards the greater good. Peace and love are John’s best friends and tools for coding a better society tomorrow. Let us embrace that, and never give up! Thank you John!«

– Uroš Klančar, Lek

– Gašper Kranjc, KPMG
