"85% of senior execs said the current telco business model will no longer deliver growth." Telco 2.0 Survey, November 2008

Part of the Telco 2.0™ Initiative, the Telco 2.0™ Executive Brainstorm series helps players in the Telecoms, Media and Technology sector investigate new business models at the intersection of content, communications, connectivity and commerce.

The brainstorms are run every 6 months (Spring and Autumn) in EMEA. We also run annual events for the Americas and will be launching an APAC event in 2011. They are large-scale interactive problem-solving events for up to 300 international executives, designed and facilitated by senior industry consultants from STL Partners, using its unique 'Mindshare™ ' process.

They incorporate new research and real-time market analysis to stimulate new ideas around: End-User needs, Service Portfolios, and Technology requirements.

They are supported by an advisory board made up of senior representatives from across the value chain - leading practitioners from investment banks, VC's, incumbent operators (fixed, mobile, cablecos, ISPs), internet players, media owners, disruptive start-ups, research labs, government bodies, vendors, consultancies, and regulators.

The first Telco 2.0 Executive Brainstorm was held in London on 4-5 October 2006, with representatives from 42 different Operators and Service Providers and 35 partner and investor organisations. We are continually improving the format and, as a result, the event has grown in size and stature.

The most recent EMEA event was on 28-29 April 2010 in London, UK.

The most recent Americas event was on 9-10 December 2009 in Orlando, USA.

"A breath of fresh air after all the traditional (and traditionally boring) conferences." Marketing Director, Major Operator

"[‘Mindshare’] is excellent… more intimate than the larger shows, an opportunity to have a real conversation with the audience." Vice President, Major Media Company

"truly different..." Chief Telecoms Analyst, Investment Bank

"The [‘Mindshare’] approach created much better interactive discussions than other conferences I have been to. Also, due to the pre-screening, the speakers were all of a higher standard than most other conferences." SVP, Major Operator

"Telco 2.0 isn't a conference. It's an ongoing conversation... a brainstorming process." John Woodget, Global Director, Telecoms Sector, Intel Corporation
