Mobile is not an industry. It is a disruptive revolution that will affect every industry, nation, and economy. The institutional flux of a world gone mobile has created as many questions about the future as it has opportunities. UNTETHER.talks is a two day mobile summit, taking place at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, ON, from June 26-27, which seeks to answer these questions and apprehend the opportunities.

"The premise for UNTETHER.talks was simple," says co-founder Rob Woodbridge. "There is considerable confusion around mobile right now and no venue for conversation about where to start and where we are going. UNTETHER.talks is that venue and we are proud to host the first event in Canada." co-founder Douglas Soltys agrees. “Our plan was to place the smartest people we could find in one room and tell them to point to the horizon, then hold their feet to the fire until they explain how we get there.”

Over two days, attendees will be exposed to a broad view of the sweeping business, consumer, and personal changes brought on by mobile, including the way we shop, the way we pay, and the way we learn. UNTETHER.talks is intended for anyone interested in understanding how mobile will change our lives and livelihoods.

"The mobile space is where many of our clients are doing business and more likely will soon. The mobile and wireless worlds are ones where entrepreneurs, investment and innovation are colliding - making it a very exciting time to be part of them," says Grant Jameson, senior partner and managing partner of Norton Rose Canada’s Ottawa office. The firm is a founding sponsor of UNTETHER.talks. "We chose to partner with to create this event because no one has a pulse on the mobile revolution like Rob and Douglas."

The UNTETHER.talks format features forward thinking keynote presentations paired with panel or one-on-one Q&A sessions designed to address the immediate ramifications of each presentation. Keynote speakers and panelists include:

Doug Stephens - Founder, Retail Prophet Consulting
Scott Kveton - CEO, Urban Airship
Tom Hearne - CFO, Score Media
whurley - General Manager, Chaotic Moon Labs
Damien Patton - CEO, Banjo
Kelly McDonald - Manager, Deloitte

"The quality of the speakers and diversity of the topics at UNTETHER.talks shows just how far mobile is reaching into our lives," says Amber MacArthur, best selling author, media host, and technology expert. "It is becoming more important for all of us to understand what is happening here in order to make better decisions for ourselves and our businesses - the unique format of the show makes that much easier to do." Amber Mac will kick off UNTETHER.talks with a keynote discussing mobile's impact on personal branding.
