Industry Leaders to Attend Exclusive Executive Summit at Broadband World Forum

London, 3 October 2013 - The Broadband World Forum will this year welcome the industry's foremost leaders from across the globe for the annual Executive Summit at the RAI Convention Centre, Amsterdam. This highly exclusive, invitation-only programme allows pioneering C-Level innovators a unique forum to identify and discuss the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing their businesses today.

This year the event will be hosted by Australia's customer service focused incumbent operator, Telstra, and will be chaired by the company's CTO, Hugh Bradlow. Mr Bradlow will deliver the host welcome and will open the discussion by posing the question, "What services will make users notice the difference in broadband speeds and hence pay more for higher speed broadband?", paying particular focus on cloud services driving the need for faster broadband. Mr Bradlow's opening will set the tone for the discussion and complement the high level presentations that follow.

Of the Summit, Mr Bradlow says: "Telstra is delighted to be the official host for the Executive Summit at Broadband World Forum this year and it is our great pleasure to welcome the industry's foremost leaders to this special event. We look forward to meeting a wide range of senior executives from around the world, sharing our story and discussing the most pressing issues facing the industry at large."

Telstra's message at the Summit will complement that of one of their key customers, The Commonwealth Bank of Australia, whose CIO, Michael Harte, will speak at the Summit on the power of cloud in driving business growth. Also joining Telstra, will be Chief Strategy Officer at Telecom Italia, Oscar Cicchetti; CEO of cloud-based TV operator, Magine, Erik Wikström; Pierrick Hamon of Orange and Tom Paquin, CTO of cloud gaming company, OnLive, among others. Presentations from this highly distinctive gathering of business leaders from across the industry will serve to stimulate unique and thoughtful discussion.

Held to Chatham House rules*, the Executive Summit is a unique and exclusive platform used by the most dynamic C-level executives from across all parts of the industry to foster open and honest discussion on the hottest and most exciting topics in the industry today.

The Summit will take place on day two of the Broadband World Forum event (23 October 2013) and attendance is invitation only. To enquire about invitations, or for more information please contact Seetal Katelia on [email protected].
