NEW BOOK: Mobile 4th Wave: Mining the Trillion Dollar Opportunity August 26, 2013

Posted by chetan in : Chetan Sharma Consulting, Mobile Future Forward , trackback


I am pleased to announce that our Mobile Future Forward Book for 2013 will be published and become available exclusively to Mobile Future Forward participants on Sept 10th. As is the tradition, the book has some brilliant essays and interviews from our speakers – the thought leaders and mobile industry senior executives, on trends, opportunities, innovations, and user experiences. More importantly, these thought-pieces highlight how some of the leading companies are gearing themselves to execute on the 4th wave. The book provides a perfect platform for our day long brainstorm about what the next 5 years in mobile will look like. We have extraordinary speakers and am really looking forward to the discussions throughout the day.

The essays are:

1. Mobile 4th Wave: Evolution of the Next Trillion Dollars – Chetan Sharma, President, Chetan Sharma Consulting

2. One-on-one with Ralph de la Vega, President and CEO, AT&T Mobility

3. Connected Car: Building a New Industry – Pavan Mathew, Head of Connected Car, Telefónica Digital

The goal of the Mobile Future Forward Summit is to explore the future of the mobile industry, to create new connections, to openly discuss and debate new ideas. By bringing together a really diverse group of individual leaders – both speakers and audience, we are able to create an environment for constructive dialogue that will hopefully help in formulating your own strategies and product plans.

My thanks to all the authors and their respective organizations for making this year’s book possible.

Hi Chetan, I’ve recently discovered you site and research and am interested in getting this book/essays for review. We work with AT&T quite closely so the insight would be tremendous. Is there a way to acquire the guide even though I was not in attendance to the conference?

Thank you!
