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 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.

 

Outcomes experienced by some Industry Members

Visibility of Policy Thinking

"There are plenty of places I can learn about industry trends, but hearing how policy makers and regulators are responding to them is invaluable"

Emerging Markets

"The IIC has given me a view of the evolution of policy frameworks in emerging markets. Useful insights when rolling out new products or services"

Healthy Tension

"The non-partisan platform creates an adult, academic environment where health tension and differing opinions can co-exist"

Relationships

"I can have a cup of coffee with a regulator that would normally be hard to meet with"
