Canada’s communications leadership

CRTC Acting Chair Len Katz

Only one event gathers Canada’s communications and ICT leadership together each year.

The Canadian Telecom Summit is the conference that delivers convergence in a physical sense, bringing together the leading people who shape the evolution of our digital economy.

Last week, a number of top industry personalities confirmed their participation in The 2012 Canadian Telecom Summit.

There are now an even dozen leaders confirmed keynote addresses, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. Another 50 thought leaders will be engaged in panel discussions.

It is shaping up to be another great programme for the annual gathering of Canada’s ICT industry, taking place this year from June 4-6, again at The Toronto Congress Centre.

Here is a quick look at some of the people who are new additions to the agenda.

For the past couple years, we have moved to a fireside chat format for the head of the CRTC; Acting Chair Len Katz is now confirmed for Tuesday morning, June 5, just before the Regulatory Blockbuster that features a debate between Canada’s most prominent telecom policy chiefs.

OpenText Executive Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer Tom Jenkins is being pressed into double duty on Wednesday June 6. In the morning, he is participating in our Building a Digital Canada discussion and he will deliver the conference’s closing address that afternoon. Having chaired the Federal Government’s R&D Policy Review and the Ontario Innovation Roundtable, we can expect some powerful messages on what we need to do to successfully transform Canada to a digital economy.

As EVP of English Services, Kirstine Stewart heads the delivery of programming across multiple platforms, including the development of mobile and broadband content strategies. Kirstine has re-established the CBC as a leader in Canadian-made television programming and broadcasting, commissioning the highest level of Canadian content the CBC has ever had in prime time. She will be speaking on June 6.

There are many more speakers confirmed and the panels are shaping up nicely as well. Be sure to visit the conference website to stay on top of programme updates.
