Wiping a small tear from my eye as I write this, I'm thinking back to the first event we held at the Vodafone offices in The Strand on the 7th Nov 2005 and the 70-odd (really) events we have held since. The mobile industry has come an awfully long way since then - so it seems appropriate for us to look back over that period, and to look forward to what's coming next.
Helping us do so, and trying not to overdo the A A Milne references, but not really succeeding:
Martyn Warwick (aka Christopher Robin) from TelecomTV (who just celebrated 10 years) will chair the panel, which will consist of long time friends of MoMoLo from Pooh Corner, Mike Short (Telefonica and current IET President), David Wood (Accenture and of Symbian and Psion fame), Russell Buckley (Eagle Eye Solutions, aka the AdMob man) and Mark Curtis (Fjord, themselves 10, the man who made Mobile Social work in the form of Flirtomatic).
Between them they'll have plenty to say about what's been happening in the Hundred Acre Wood over the last six years, and while leaning on the rail of the bridge will offer opinions on which of the upcoming Poohsticks will emerge first. We may have a little competition for who is Tigger and who is Eeyore ... I'm expecting plenty of lively input from you, the audience!
TelecomTV are planning to bring a film crew to record the event for posterity and may very well be seeking the opinions of attendees during the networking reception, that as usual follows the panel.
