First Speakers Confirmed for RAG London 2021

There are two months to go until RAG London 2021, to be held at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel, next to Heathrow Airport, on July 7th and 8th. The first five telco speakers have already been confirmed. They are (pictured, clockwise from top left):

Employees of communications providers may register to attend the conference for free. Demand for this event has been proven by the number of valid registrations already received from risk, security, fraud and assurance professionals that work for telcos – and by the number of invalid registrations from salesmen attempting to get a free seat! However, RAG always puts the needs of comms providers first, and is also maintaining strict limits on the number of seats in order to support social distancing. If you qualify for a free seat then register now to avoid the risk of disappointment.

Preparations for RAG London are gathering pace, so today’s live broadcast of RAG Television will be the final episode in this season. We will once again attempt to recreate the experience of participating in a RAG event, this time with the online equivalent of RAG’s closing ‘wise heads’ panel, where a group of industry veterans answer a wide range of questions about current priorities and key objectives for risk and assurance professionals. Today’s show will also unveil the results of this year’s leakage coverage study, highlighting the areas where comms providers are most likely to have strong revenue and cost controls, and the areas where leakage is most likely to remain undiscovered. Visit the RAG TV webpage to see the live stream at 8am Eastern, 1pm UK, 5.30pm; click here to save the show in the right time zone for you.
