In business, it can be tempting to play things safe, be conservative, and stay within one’s comfort zone. But, as telcos have learned in the past several years, those who dare to be courageous are able to smash through barriers to innovation and transformation.

The world’s top operators are doing just that, introducing disruptive sales, marketing and service strategies that improve customer satisfaction, increase the variety of service offerings, improve the speed of service delivery, and overall change the way telcos interact with their customers.

With the theme of “Dare More. Be More.”, the upcoming Nexterday North 2017 will celebrate those operators and other businesses that embrace the business culture of courage.

Scheduled for 19-21 September 2017 in Helsinki, Finland, our third annual event picks up where Nexterday North 2016 left off, encouraging communications service providers that have already taken steps to implement a digital transformation to go further.

Our CEO Juhani Hintikka put it this way in a press statement: “This year, Nexterday North will urge attendees who have taken action to courageously go beyond that initial execution – to be more daring in their strategies and ultimately, be more than what the industry has come to expect.”

We’re excited to welcome guests from within and outside the telco industry to learn, engage and communicate over three days in Helsinki. This year, we’ve revamped our agenda to make Nexterday North even more fulfilling for attendees. Here’s what you can expect:

Actionable Steps to Transformation

We want Nexterday North attendees to walk away from the event not only inspired, but also informed of the actionable steps and solutions they can take to make a difference in their business. We designed Day 1 for the people working day in and out at operator businesses, making change happen from the ground up. The schedule includes many opportunities for you explore solutions to improve customer engagement, service monetisation and the digital service lifecycle.

Inspiring Keynote Speeches

Day 2 is packed with exciting keynote speeches from a range of digital leaders and big thinkers. Executives from Deutsche Telekom, 2degrees Mobile, and Saudi Telecom will share their stories of digital transformation. We’ll also hear from:

  • Jason Silva – host of National Geographic Channel’s #1 rated and Emmy-nominated series “Brain Games” and a filmmaker who explores themes of innovation, technology, creativity and futurism
  • Mark Stevenson – one of the world’s most respected thinkers on technology and societal trends, helping you see where the world is going and how to adapt.
  • Hilary Mason – CEO and Founder of Fast Forward Labs who frequently speaks about the challenges and the rewards of working with big data, with a special focus on machine learning.
  • Adam Alter – a bestselling author who studies how we think, how consumers spend, doctors diagnose, judges punish, and investors invest.
  • Sarah Harrison – of The Courage Foundation, an international organisation that protects whistleblowers and truth tellers. She’s an expert in issues surrounding whistleblowing, freedom of information, surveillance and asylum.

Exciting Debates on Digital Transformation

Day 3 will include a series of conversations on the digital experience, culminating in two lively debates featuring participants from Accenture, TCS, Salesforce, RedHat, Avanto Ventures and Analysys Mason. The Dare More. Be More. LIVE Digital debate features industry-leading analysts and business transformers, along with their customers, who will debate the two most critical aspects of digital transformation: perfecting the elusive digital experience and how to make it happen.

As always, Nexterday North will be a hub of activity across the full three-day schedule. Visitors can stop by Industry Blueprint Alley, at any time, where they can browse a gallery of innovative and field-proven blueprints created by leading industry players, Nokia/Comptel, Accenture, Salesforce, TCS, RedHat, Avanto Ventures and Quuppa

We’ll also host the annual Nexterday fun run, Happy Hour, tasty food provided by Richard McCormick, live entertainment and the Nexterday app allowing you network and meet up with your peers.

We’re excited for what’s in store for this year’s Nexterday North, and we can’t wait to see you there!
