Charles Towers-Clark has been working in the M2M, IoT, and data space since founding Pod Group (a provider of IoT connectivity & billing software) in 1999. He is an author and a contributor for Forbes.com on the topics of AI and the future of work. He is a regular speaker at international events and on webinars, as well as a guest on national radio (BBC 5 Live). His views have been widely published in the national and industry press. He is also Founder and Chairman of Pod Group, a fast growing international MVNO. In his book “The W.E.I.R.D CEO”, he sets out why businesses and society need to change to prepare for a world dominated by AI. However, his viewpoint is not theoretical – he tells a fascinating story about the change process he implemented in his own company to prepare his employees for the future of work. This included letting people choose their own salaries in order to encourage initiative and responsibility (which as he sets out, are some of the skills we need to encourage for a changing working environment).
