Each Telco 2.0™ Executive Brainstorm comprises 150-200 senior execs from across the Telco, Media, and Technology sectors, with this profile:

  • 50% fixed and mobile network operators, ISPs and service providers, 20% content owners, e-commerce players, 20% enablers, vendors, 10% consultants, regulators, trade associations.
  • They typically come from a mix of Strategy, Technology, Marketing, Finance, R&D and Operational functions.
  • They are involved in designing and delivering new business models, services portfolios and new technology.
  • They are responsible for, or involved in, strategic vision and product direction.
  • They share a common goal – to increase the value of their organizations.
    They believe that ‘business as usual’ isn’t sustainable.
  • They are interested in growth opportunities for their business, not just managing cost.
  • They are looking for stimulating ideas from outside their company, country and industry and want to be exposed to ideas that challenge their assumptions about the industry and how to do business.
  • They are interested in practical solutions to short-term problems, so they prove a case for broader innovation.
  • They come to Telco 2.0™ events because of the unique brainstorming format focused on cutting-edge topics.

Between events they digest Telco 2.0™ industry research and analysis (reports and blog).

"When I got to the Executive Brainstorm [in March 2007] I was unsure of the mix of people. Would it be mostly stiff telco execs who are blind to the innovation needed and shackled to the old business model (career guys) or would it be a seditious lot of frustrated disrupters, jumping up and down and crying wolf once again. But it was neither. I actually met a group of smart people who are genuinely concerned and very interested in the future of a fantastic industry." Vice President, Leading European Operator
