World Innovators Meet (WIM) is delighted to announce the participation of Mr. Edgar Perez in our North America chapter. His presence at WIM2020 is an opportunity to learn more about artificial intelligence, quantum computing and the role new technologies play in these disruptive times. 

The starting point of Mr. Perez's experience was in Peru, where he received the title of Systems Engineer and completed a Masters' Degree in Administration. Soon, he moved to the US, where he obtained his MBA from Columbia Business School. Since then, he has built a successful career, working in prominent firms and handling managerial positions. Mr. Perez was a Vice President at Citigroup, a Senior Consultant at IBM, and Strategy Consultant at McKinsey & Co. His trajectory has made him one of the most influential executives and speakers in the technology industry. 

Mr. Perez is widely recognized as a thought leader on new technologies, from 5G to quantum computing, passing through artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. He has presented in front of thousands of top executives around the world through keynote speeches at major forums. Additionally, Mr. Perez has worked as a consultant, leading corporate training programs for global companies, helping their leadership to position their firms towards the future and incorporate disruptive technologies into their business strategies.
