Time to Pay it Forward…

We know you have ideas.

We know you know interesting communication companies.

We know you are a fountain of knowledge in your field.

Now is the time to share your ideas and knowledge with the Telecom Council community—our 60+ telcos who support 3B fixed and wireless subscribers, and our 39,464 readers, followers, and members.

Telecom Council runs 40 meetings each year supporting 7 Forums (IoT Forum, Analytics Forum, NFV/SDN Forum, Cloud Forum, Infrastructure Forum, Service Provider Forum and Investor Forum). Each Forum seeks great speakers, interesting startups, new technologies and ideas from across the communications industry all year long.

When you meet an interesting company, fund a new communications startup, read about a great new technology, or advise a colleague about making waves in the industry—send them our way. We'll make room for them - quickly, if they fit one of our Q1 meeting topics listed below.

Send your recommendations—it helps your network, it benefits the industry, plus when you pay it forward, good things come back to you.

Looking forward to your ideas, Liz
