On the 17th / 18th November 2008 in Berlin, Germany, the elite communications and networking company, econique summits, will bring together top level decision-makers from European telecommunications companies to discuss, exchange, network and learn in a closed confidential atmosphere.
The telecommunications internal and external landscape is changing as rapidly as ever and EU regulations and competitive moves mean a need for rapid and continuing innovation. In order to move faster into strategically relevant positions many companies are looking at transformation as the way forward. Ripening technologies mean disruption but can also be learnt from and integrated into new service offerings. Clever business models forge new revenue avenues, but companies have to keep their eyes on their customers. A next generation of network is needed to keep up with a new generation of socially-minded customer. European markets are slowing and tightening up with Russia and the Near East posing both interesting possibilities and threats and as a result the leaders of today may not be the leaders of tomorrow.
The invitation from econique is extended to leaders in Business Excellence on both sides of the coin – those with experience, ideas and best practice cases and those who have questions needing answers. econique’s unique Business Matching ensures that competencies and need are brought together at the event to effectively manage your time away from your desk.
Aimed at CEOs, CFOs and senior level strategists within fixed, mobile, cable operators and ISPs, the two days in Berlin will showcase best practices in the areas of financial strategy and service offerings. After a market place overview and round up of relevant regulatory news, the presentations move onto a discussion as to the benefits and challenges of transformation and different ways to secure competitive advantage and financial growth by looking internally into the business. A discussion on mergers and acquisitions rounds up the day before the exclusive evening event. The second day looks at possible new business models and partnerships with a focus on the various experiences throughout Europe.
The increasing importance of going mobile and the possibilities are a particular highlight. The event presents the opportunity to hear what your competitors are doing and how others are steering their company through the increasingly dynamic waters of the telecommunications industry.
