“We enjoyed a lot this conference since it wasn’t the typical conference where we talk about technology and new developments in the telecom sector, but it was about the Human Side of Telecom that is very important for us to discuss. I think this country can be the basis for initiatives in the future to tackle the human side of telecom, and launch initiatives such as educating users on how to use the internet, educating parents on how to make sure that the use of internet by their children and teenagers is done in the proper way.”

“It is essential to hold such Summit constantly in Lebanon in order to gather all the telecom experts from Lebanon and from the region and give them the chance to discuss all the news and issues in this industry, especially that technology is a very fast growing market. Telecom Review Summit is today the best event that gathers all these experts and leaders in one place, giving them the chance to benefit from the discussions they have together.”

With the development of technology in the world, it is essential to hold such summits in Lebanon in order to stay up to date with all the technological changes in the world, and try to regain theadership that Lebanon once had, knowing that our new generations are ce lapable of boosting the Lebanese economy through digital innovations like developing new applications and other.”

“The changes in the telecom industry today are imposing themselves since they are totally changing the face of communication between people, organizations, companies, governments or even countries. As we can see today in the region, many historical changes are happening with the help of the new ways of communication and the social media. This is why I think holding summits like the one we had today is very important in order to discuss those issues. What was special about today’s Summit is the fact that it didn’t tackle the technological side of the telecom, since everyone already knows it, but it stressed on the Human Side of Telecom. The interventions were in my opinion very important for they took into consideration the social changes our societies are experiencing, along with the relation between the members of the family in addition to the awareness, safety and privacy issues that the digital world is facing.”

“This is a truly very interesting Summit. I don’t want to be subjective since I was a part of the panel, but I think that people were very interested and I was really very interested. The presence is really high-level and the debates and questions as well. The many animations that were part of the debates are the proof of the fact that we’re discussing a very current subject that we are truly experiencing in our lives today.”

“This Summit is a very good opportunity for all the stakeholders and leaders in the ICT sector to gather and share their opinions together, since it is impossible to improve our industry if each one of us works alone without caring for others’ opinions. Our sector needs a lot of collaboration, communication and debates in order to reach a common ground that will let us develop it and agree on the issues and challenges that it is facing. It was a very successful and great group that participated today in this Summit, to discuss all of our challenges.”
