2018 IIC Future Leaders Competition
Promoting original thought
Whilst our members come from the boardrooms and senior strategic teams of national regulatory authorities, the wider TMT industry and highly specialist lawyers, it is widely agreed that some of the most innovative and exciting ideas come from emerging markets and moreover, emerging individuals.
To this end, we ran a competition for IIC members aged 35 and under, sponsored by some of our members, in order 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 the Future Leaders’ Competition winner: Tim Hogg, Consultant at Oxera.
Mr Hogg presented his paper to leading experts at the IIC's 49th Annual Conference, which took place in Mexico City, Mexico, from 10-11 October 2018.
Entrants were asked to provide a digital report or multi-media presentation on the subject of ‘The Sociology of Technology’.
Suggested areas to address included:
- what the theme means to you and the policy issues that might need to be considered
- the insights and experience that have informed your thinking and how you have developed, tested and refined your ideas
- international examples that support your thinking
- how your argument make sense from a financial and competitive point of view
