Many times, I was the keynote speaker, others, a member of a panel. My talks and speeches allowed me to take on the role of evangelist for worldwide standards, spokesperson for a completely new technology (more than once) and to promote the books, consulting services, research capabilities and other aspects of the companies that I owned or partnered in.
At last count I had given speeches in more than 20 countries... there were more, I'm sure, but I just stopped counting after that.
Here are just a few of the more important ones (I stopped speaking at these events after 2001 to reduce my travel - after 2,000,000 miles flown I just got tired of it):
