  1. Business Transformation: Reshaping Mobile in the Digital Revolution - 2:00-3:30pm
    The killer services behind the last 20 years of mobile industry growth are today facing serious competition from the digital revolution, forcing operators to rethink their role and product portfolio. Equivalent pressures and knock-on effects are already affecting the big players throughout the ecosystem while opening the doors for companies with new ideas and ways of doing things.

    What are the best bets for key players in the ecosystem, and what does it take to rethink your business for the next 10 years of growth? Find out here.

  2. Business Transformation: Reshaping the Operator - 4:00-5:00pm
    The rules have changed for the mobile industry in the past five years, and today demand a radical rethink of operations to enable new services. While voice and SMS continue to be the main revenue source for many operators these revenues are increasingly at risk or declining. Positioning themselves as providers of coverage and capacity poses problems for operators as profits don’t rise in line with costs; but historically they have struggled to compete against agile players in other service ecosystems. Reshaping the business should be a constant challenge to mobile operators these days.

    Carrying out change while making the most of existing business is a difficult balancing act; in this session pioneering C-level speakers discuss their visions, pain points and surprises leading their companies through genuine business transformation.

    Moderator: Tony Poulos, Market Strategist, TM Forum
    Ernest L. Cu, President & CEO, Globe Telecom Inc.
    Mats Granryd, President & CEO, Tele2 Group
    David Thodey, CEO, Telstra
