The Future of ICT / TIME: my presentation at the NSN Transformation Forum in Cologne I had the great pleasure to speak at Nokia Siemens Networks' Transformation Forum in Cologne yesterday (March 26, 2009). I really enjoyed the event and had lots of great conversations; and some Koelsch, too! Rolf Hansen, CEO of SIMYO, was there as well, and delivered a very interesting presentation on 10 imperatives of success, which miraculously synced very nicely with own speech.
