forumoxford future technologies conference – Many thanks to all and what a great day!

What started as a conversation between me and Tomi Ahonen at the Cafe Nero in Oxford street has grown up to be an institution in a matter of three years reflecting the power of the community

Thanks to my three partners in crime for this event – the core team which runs forumoxford conference + forum is me, Tomi, Peter Holland and Dr Rebecca Lingwood.

Many thanks to Tomi, Peter and Rebecca and also to our sponsors and speakers and attendees. Like I said in the closing remarks – so many of us stayed the whole day including Graham Trickey (senior director of GSMA) and Vic Keegan(Guardian journalist whose views I follow)

So, I am exhausted but happy!

I think the best compliment came from @Seb Haigh who said on twitter #forumoxford = TED’s serious oxford telecom

TED is a goal for us to aspire to and we have a long way to go but its great to see the comparison

Many thanks again to everyone
