Jeremy Foster

Jeremy shares an insights on the differences between 'Digital Natives' and 'Digital Immigrants' and how these two distinct groups are diverging in values as they use technology in very different ways to interact with each other and the world.

The term 'Digital' has been around for some time, we have 'Digital Watches', 'Digital Scales' and even 'Digital Pets'. But what does it mean to be a 'Digital Society'? Jeremy will discuss some of the trends that are affecting us all both regionally and on a global scale as we enter the first 'Digital Century'.

Jeremy Foster leads Ericsson's engagement with Government and Industry in the Middle East and North East Africa region. With telecoms being a cornerstone for growth in both GDP and development of society, Government policy becomes all the more important to ensure sustainable telecoms to continue driving every other industry.
