WORKSHOPS FOR MOBILE OPERATORS & WIRELESS CARRIERS

 

 

                   "The single driving element that will make mobile internet technology such a success is micropayments,"

                   Ahonen adds. Revolution 28 February 2001

 

 

Tomi has presented to dozens of mobile and fixed operators/carriers on four continents in workshops covering numerous topics. He has run all-day workshops for over a dozen operators/carriers on issues relating to competition, business case, marketing, profitability and technical evolution. In all cases the customer reaction has been one of exceptional satisfaction with Tomi's workshops. Earlier Tomi worked for Elisa corporation in Finland creating the world's first fixed-mobile service bundle with its subsidiaries Helsinki Telephone, Finnet International and Radiolinja. Then at Nokia he worked with in customer-facing units and at its 3G strategic programme supporting the world's largest mobile operators/cellular carriers. A prolific speaker on the conference circuit, Tomi has been seen on six continents discussing the future of cellular telecoms. Tomi's pioneering White Paper "Indirect Access the Business Opportunity" (Nokia, 24 pages, 1999) was a landmark document for the first time advising cellular operators how to introduce internet access. Tomi's first book, "Services for UMTS" (John Wiley & Sons, 2002) was the first book on 3G services and became the world's best-selling 3G book in October 2002.  His second book, m-Profits: Making Money from 3G is the world's first business book on 3G and advanced wireless services and was released September 2002. His third book, 3G Marketing is the first book on modern marketing for mobile telecoms. Tomi is ready to present on for example the following topics today:

WORKSHOPS FOR MVNOs (MOBILE VIRTUAL NETWORK OPERATORS) AND MOBILE PORTALS

 

 

"Many operators have said they will be MVNOs," says Tomi Ahonen.  Communications Week International 5 March 2001

 

 

Tomi has run all-day workshops with mobile network operators and industry analysts and bankers, examining the business impact of MVNOs and mobile portals.  He has presented on mobile service provider and MVNO topics at telecoms conferences since 1999.  Tomi has also run all-day workshops for over a dozen operators/carriers on issues relating to competition, business case, marketing, profitability and technical evolution. In all cases the customer reaction has been one of exceptional satisfaction with Tomi's workshops. Tomi's pioneering White Paper "Indirect Access the Business Opportunity" (Nokia, 24 pages, 1999) was a landmark document advising new entrants into making money in telecoms and was the first to outline how internet access could be provided on cellular networks as well as how ISPs could benefit from traffic revenue opportunities.  Tomi's first book, "Services for UMTS" (John Wiley & Sons, 2002) covers how to make money in mobile services on 3G/UMTS technologies, and was the first book on 3G services.  His second book, m-Profits: Making Money from 3G was the first business book on next generation mobile telecoms and his next book is 3G Marketing. Each of his books discusses the MVNO dimensions of modern mobile telecoms. Tomi is ready to present on for example the following topics today:

WORKSHOPS FOR FIXED AND INTERNET OPERATORS, CARRIERS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS

 

 

"New 'voice-rich' services, such as wireless activated connections to call centers and voice messaging,

will become more widely available," said Tomi Ahonen. The451 17 November 2000

 

 

NOTE TO READER: Remember that the "Mobile Internet" of new mobile services delivered and billed by cellular networks, was invented as recently as 1998 in Finland, and not by the innovative mobile operators/carriers, but rather by a Fixed ISP.  By the end of 2003 the wireless internet was worth well beyond 7 Billion dollars worldwide. There is a VERY BIG opportunity in new services to be captured by current fixed operators/carriers and especially by ISPs.  If you do not know this recent history, please ask Tomi about it via e-mail at  tomi@tomiahonen.com

 

Tomi has presented to dozens of mobile and fixed operators/carriers on three continents covering numerous topics. He has run all-day workshops for over a dozen operators/carriers on issues relating to competition, business case, marketing, profitability and technical evolution. In all cases the customer reaction has been one of exceptional satisfaction with Tomi's workshops. Earlier Tomi worked for three fixed operators, a pure ISP on Manhattan, a fixed-mobile traditional telco in Finland, and a fixed international challenger operator in Finland.  He also worked at Nokia's Telephony Gateways unit where Nokia developed infrastructure for convergence areas, such as fixed-mobile, mobile internet etc. Tomi has frequently presented on these topics and he chaired the world's first conference on ISP Business models. Tomi's pioneering White Paper "Indirect Access the Business Opportunity" (Nokia, 24 pages, 1999) was a landmark document advising new entrants into making money in telecoms and was the first to outline ISP traffic revenue opportunities. Tomi's first book, "Services for UMTS" (John Wiley & Sons, 2002) was the first book on 3G services and became the world's best-selling 3G book in October 2002. His second book, m-Profits: Making Money from 3G is the world's first business book on 3G and advanced wireless services and was released in September 2002. His next book is 3G Marketing.

WORKSHOPS AND BRIEFINGS FOR BANKERS, INVESTORS, INVESTMENT BANKS

 

 

                   "The real business today is that operators all have to make money," Ahonen said.  Total Telecom 21 February 2001

 

 

Tomi has presented to most of the world's largest banks and financial audiences worldwide on telecoms investment, finances, profits and telecoms future related topics. He has run all-day workshops for several major banks and their telecoms expert groups on issues relating to telecoms competition, business case, profitability, and technical evolution. He has the unique ability to communicate with financial audiences as his MBA degree (with hons, St Johns Univ NY) was in International Finance and his first job was two years on Wall Street. Combined with his subsequent years in IT and telecoms Tomi has the rare talent of speaking on telecoms matters in the bankers' language. In all cases the customer reaction has been one of exceptional satisfaction with Tomi's workshops. Tomi has been the guest speaker at several invitational banking events and has been quoted by name in numerous banking reports and industry reports. While Tomi's first book, "Services for UMTS" (John Wiley & Sons, 2002) was the world's first book to cover some of the main issues of the money side of 3G, his second book, m-Profits: Making Money from 3G is of particular interest to banking and finance audiences as it focuses completely on the revenues and profits of new cellular services. His first report Revenue Sharing Report is also of exceptional interest to banking and financial audiences. Tomi is ready to present on for example the following topics today:

Tomi has presented professionally to several hundred professional

audiences in and around telecoms/datacoms over the past dozen years. 

Tomi can draw vivid, realistic and relevant insight from his experience

first as a professional buyer of telecoms and datacoms services on Wall

Street, then as a sales representative selling datacoms solutions in

fiercely competitive New York City; then from product management and

marketing in fixed telecoms in deregulated Finland; then from R&D and

service development from fixed-mobile converging telecoms in the

world's fastest growing cellular market in Finland; and finally from the

side of the longer range view of the equipment vendor with the world's

undisputed leading 3G equipment vendor Nokia.  Tomi's competence

covers technologies from fixed internet narrowband and broadband to

fixed voice to mobile voice to mobile services 2G, 2.5G and 3G/UMTS. His operational background includes work with three telecoms operators in sales/marketing, technical/R&D, finance/accounting; and forecasting/business modelling.

 

Tomi's expertise covers all of those topics, including the digital convergence and the planning, forecasting and strategic management involved in those areas. A noted authority on most of those areas, Tomi has been involved for several years in telecoms standardization work, including chairing the subcommittee for mobile VPNs and more recently contributing to how services will evolve from 3G to 4G.  He has spoken at over 80 telecoms conferences on six continents including chairing most of the leading 3G conferences, and delivering presentations to most of the world's largest telecoms events. He has also chaired numerous industry first conferences, including the first ISP Business Models conference, the first Telecoms Forecasting and Business Modelling conference, the first Wireless Advertising and Marketing conference and the first B2E (Business to Employee) conference. Tomi's first book, "Services for UMTS" (John Wiley & Sons, 2002) was the first book on 3G services and became the world's best-selling book on 3G topics in October 2002.  His second book, m-Profits: Making Money from 3G is the world's first business book on 3G and advanced wireless services and became the world's best-selling 3G book in the months of October and December 2003. His next book is 3G Marketing: Communities and Strategic Partnerships. He has also published the world's first comprehensive Revenue Sharing Report covering 44 industries. Tomi is ready to present on for example the following topics as well as any which are mentioned in the public conferences listing see [Tomi Conferences]

Tomi's specialty is on how to make money with new mobile services, today!  He has already discussed more than 800 service ideas with various industry inside audiences, and at public conferences has discussed openly over 450 new service ideas.  Most of his press quotes include mentions of new services.   His first book Services for UMTS includes over 200 potential service ideas, and his second book m-Profits includes 100 additional potential services and 50 real services.  Tomi Ahonen is probably the most prolific new mobile service evangelist in the world.  He collects new service ideas into what he calls "Pearls" - existing mobile services described on one slide.  Pearls describe services which are making money for someone already somewhere in the world, and most Pearls are easily and immediately implementable anywhere.  His collection includes over 600 currently valid Pearls and countless historical ones.  To see a brief selection of his current favourite new services, see  [Pearl of the Month]

WARGAMING SIMULATION FOR TELECOM COMPETITION: NOKIA'S EQUILIBRIUM

 

                   "I'm personally confident that the market forces of the competitive environment will help

                   the market behave," said Ahonen.  Total Telecom   3 April 2001

 

 

The most intense and reaction-preparatory training that exists on earth, is military wargaming using advanced computer simulations.  Wargaming and computer simulation is used to train fighter pilots, tank crews, submarine personnel, as well as civil aviation pilots and specialist police forces. Anywhere where extreme reaction speed is needed to respond to changing conditions are particularly well suited for wargaming and computer simulation training.


Nokia has developed the world's most advanced competition simulation / "wargame" designed expressly for 3G telecoms environments.  The game is unique compared to other telecoms simulations, in that each team starts off with a realistic, but very different setting - one team is the former monopoly PTT, another is the established mobile and fixed operator, a third is the recent new-entrant mobile-only operator, another team is a fixed-only operator, while yet another is a genuine new entrant operator without a license but with a lot of financial support to enter any area. With the different types of players in the simulation, most market realism can be introduced into the dynamic competitive environment. Each team has to work in a fast-paced dynamic market, making realistic decisions to build itself a profitable future over the next decade. The best part of the simulation is that it is designed so, that inspite of the varying starting points, any of the teams can win, and the simulation has proven in real customer workshops that any team can, in fact, win.

 

The game teaches dynamics of the telecoms marketplace especially when approaching 3G, with a focus on market share, revenues and profits. Each team goes through total telecoms strategic decision-making from licence applications to network builds to staff recruitment to product development, competitor analysis, service porfolio management, marketing, pricing, etc. Impacts of decisions are seen on a wide realistic basket of market impacts, from financial statements to market shares to churn and customer satisfaction etc. 

 

Tomi Ahonen is a trained Equilibrium facilitator, and is authorised by Nokia to run the Nokia Equilibrium simulation for his customers.  The simulation is intended for mobile operators but can also be very useful for fixed operators and MVNOs. The workshop runs two days and needs between 15 and 30 participants to be able to be run. An ideal game participation is 20 people, with an even mix of mid-to-senior level technical, marketing and accounting people from inside and outside telecoms.

 

If you are interested or would like more information about the Nokia Equilibrium competitive simulation workshop "wargame" or using simulations to prepare for telecoms competition, please send e-mail to  tomi@tomiahonen.com

TOMI AHONEN AVAILABLE FOR MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING ASSIGNMENTS

 

 

                   "Operators must cross a threshold of understanding, realizing 3G services will be launched constantly,"

                   Ahonen said. Total Telecom 12 October 2000

 

 

Tomi Ahonen is an exceptionally strong motivational speaker, and has presented motivational and inspirational presentations to numerous demanding telecoms audiences across the world. His ability is to combine the technical, marketing and business sides of telecoms into meaningful and understandable content.

 

Tomi can tailor a motivational or inspirational presentation for any telecoms/IT audience covering innovation, competition, product development, product management, sales, marketing, branding, segmentation, bundling, distribution, pricing, technological evolution and revolution, discontinuity, profitability, forecasting, competitor analysis and strategic planning.

 

Tomi has a natural ability to inject humour into his presentations and to leave audiences with real practical theories they can start to use immediately. He is very creative and able to activate the audience and provoke new thought. He is particularly eager to face challenges of building a motivational presentation in any difficult communication situations for example with audience members facing exceptional challenges, uncertainty or obstacles.

 

No two motivational or inspirational presentations are the same, but if you have a need of a speaker to inspire or motivate, please contact Tomi with your need and he will be happy to assist in exploring the opportunity to produce a presentation for your audience which it will cherish and remember for years to come.
