Invitation TMT Club event
“Navigating Telecom Services and Technology – Two Perspectives”
kindly hosted by VodafoneZiggo
Wednesday 20 September 2023 from 17:30 to 21:00
Seven years after starting the JV VodafoneZiggo in the Netherlands, we invite those of you interested in Telecom, Media and Technology to our Central Office in Utrecht (limited seats available).
Telecommunication & media have become an indispensable part of society, and we may wonder what is more important: continuity of water supply or ‘being connected’? Fact of the matter is that customer friendly and uninterrupted service is highly valued, as society gets more and more digitalized. Numerous applications support our life and businesses, all connected via telecom networks. VodafoneZiggo phrases its purpose as ‘Enjoyment and progress with every connection’.
This evening we offer two perspectives – related to the present and the future. Fleur van Beem – Executive Director Strategy, Insights and Digital Transformation at VodafoneZiggo, former partner at Bain & Company Amsterdam – will share her view on the Dutch market for Telecom and Media, and how VodafoneZiggo’s purpose is guiding the company’s strategy and day to day decision making.
Yet then, how will the eco-system of networks and communication technology need to develop in the foreseeable future, given the increasing dependency of society on these, in times of increasing geo-political tension?
Paul Wijngaard (IEP ’01) – Senior Alliance manager, ICT Strategy & Policy at TNO will share his vision on how to create a leading international position for the Netherlands in ‘6G’. He leads a team of specialists from universities and research institutes, industry players and telecom operators which proposes a muli-year public-private programme to define and standardize Future Network Services.
The proposal has been awarded 200 m Euro subsidy (conditional) by the Dutch National Growth Fund as it is believed to contribute to Dutch economic growth and to strengthen our country’s position.
Jeroen Zaalberg (MBA ’93) – VodafoneZiggo Technology – will be your host as Lead of the Dutch INSEAD Alumni TMT club.
