Q & A with Daniel Sepulveda

Q & A with Daniel Sepulveda


  • Regulators

    For regulators, governments and policy makers

    "The telecom industry is an ever evolving landscape and from a regulatory point of view, we must keep abreast of the current discussions and debates that are most pertinent to industry players and regulators. I find that at these IIC conferences the most current issues are brought to the forefront and I am also appreciative of the balanced viewpoints."

    Juan Manuel Wilches, 
    Executive Director, Commission for Communications Regulation of Colombia (CRC)

  • Telecoms & IT

    For operators and providers in the telecommunications, media and technology space (TMT)

    "The IIC is the ideal platform for an operator like Vodafone to have frank and open exchanges with regulators and other members of the policy community."

    Markus Reinisch,
    Group Public Policy Director, Vodafone

  • Content

    "I have to thank you for having organized such a brilliant opportunity to exchange views with the regulators and industry from that part of the world. It was very much a "learning expedition" for me - the official day time programme as well as the good conversations on the margins and at dinner."

    Heiko Zysk, 
    Vice President Governmental Relations & Head of European Affairs at ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG

  • Professional Services

    For lawyers, analysts, academics and consultants

    "It keeps me smart. As an external advisor you don’t always get the full picture… I think it makes me a much better and well-rounded lawyer."

    Ann LaFrance,
    Partner, Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP

  • NGO's

    For other end-user groups representing the interests of society

    "Establishing a dialogue between the public and the private is key to success in the design of country strategies to democratise broadband. In this regard, IIC is a neutral player that brings together the different parties to discuss, in an open and direct way the regulatory and policy implications of innovation and investment."

    Antonio Garcia-Zaballos,
    Telecommunications Lead Specialist - Leader of the Broadband Program, IDB
