Mobile Strategies book launch event

I am pleased to announce that Philip Otley – partner Accenture Communications, Media & High Technology (CHT) unit, based in London – will be speaking at the next event.

This event is also the launch event for Tom Weiss’s book – Mobile Strategies). The event is on April 11 5:30 onwards in the Emberton room in Waterstones Piccadilly. The full address is 203/206 Piccadilly London SW1Y 6WW. The nearest tube station is Piccadilly Circus.

The emberton room is on the sixth floor. There is lift access to the

fifth floor and then you have to walk up one floor (the sixth floor is normally not open to the general public).

Tom’s book site is at Mobile Strategies. Many of you know from previous events that Tom Weiss is a very engaging and knowledgeable speaker.

The unique aspect of his book is – it discusses an ‘insider view’ of

mobile strategies from a telecoms operator standpoint (Tom Weiss was Vice President Key Service Introductions at T-Mobile until August 2005, and was responsible for the launch of T-Mobile premium services across Europe, including T-Mobile EURO2004 campaign)

There will be a number of journalists/media in the audience alongwith

others interested in mobile applications.

If you have any questions or wish to attend please contact me at ajit.jaokar at

Note – on that day, you can buy the book at 20% discount at the event.
