EF’s CTO and one of China’s TOP CIO to speak at TEDx in Brazil
Dr. Enio Ohmaye, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Experience Officer for EF, will be speaking at TEDxESPM in Sao Paulo, Brazil, next week. Before joining EF, Dr. Ohmaye worked as a Senior Scientist at Apple Computer, and earned his PhD in Artificial Intelligence and Education at Northwestern University.
For his TEDx talk, Enio will be returning to his native Sao Paulo after studying and working abroad since the age of 18. Although a self-proclaimed Brazilian at heart, Dr. Ohmaye’s experiences of living overseas, working with technology and international education and mastering multiple languages (including computer programming languages) allows him to be the perfect, inspirational speaker for the conference’s theme of “Communication Illuminating Minds”.
EF CTO will, for the first time, talk to his breadth of experience, from washing dishes in New York to being the chief technology officer and co-founder of the world’s largest online English school, and share his insights into how hardship and outlook can inform our personal and professional lives.
"I’m a little nervous to be speaking at this TEDx conference, I don’t think I’ve addressed such a large crowd in Portuguese before,” said Dr. Ohmaye. “At the same time, I’m honored to be invited to share my life story with residents of Sao Paulo, who are probably the people who can relate best to my experiences."
