Future Leaders Forum

The Future Leaders Forum (FLF) is for younger professionals to build a professional network and learn from international peers.

Whilst the majority of our members come from the boardrooms of national regulatory authorities, senior strategic teams from industry and practice leaders in law firms, it is widely agreed that some of the most innovative and exciting ideas come from emerging markets and moreover, emerging individuals. The Future Leaders Forum gives up-and-coming commissioners, and rising stars in legal, policy and international relations teams, a forum in which they:

  1. Build strategic and influential international relationships with senior colleagues
  2. Present their own work and ideas and raise their industry profile
  3. Explore far-reaching implications of new technology on society and the global economy
  4. Keep up to date with new legislation, precedents and case studies
  5. Take part in discussion forums, training courses and events

Competition subject: What are your views on the Sociology of Technology?
The IIC is looking for the people who will shape the future policy agenda for the telecoms, technology and media sectors and be tomorrow’s influencers…

To this end, we ran a competition earlier this year to encourage and promote original thought in the areas of communications and policy from the future leaders of the sector. We are delighted to announce that the Future Leaders’ Competition winner is Tim Hogg, Consultant at Oxera. Prior to presenting his paper to leading experts at the Annual Conference in Mexico, Mr Hogg was interviewed by Chair of the Judging Panel, Dr Derek Wilding. A brief abstract of Tim's winning entry can be read here and you can watch the video of his presentation here.
