Each Telco 2.0™ Executive Brainstorm comprises 250-300 senior execs from across the Telco, Media, and Technology sectors, with this profile:

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
