In today's global world, connectivity to the network all the time and everywhere is taken for granted. Mobility supports interactions whenever desired, connecting everybody and everything. This enables people to collaborate, innovate, learn, participate in ways we never thought possible and leaves much more yet to discover. We are together building a Networked Society where every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential. In the Networked Society anything that can benefit from a connection will be connected. The success of the Networked Society will rest on our ability to bring together broadband, mobility, and cloud computing.

Siniša Krajnović is a senior executive in Ericsson with more than 10 years of international management experience. Currently living and working in Sweden, he leads a global research and development organization consisting of more than 10000 engineers. He has extensive multicultural experience and understanding gained through global exposure from living and working in Croatia, UK, Ireland, Japan, Hungary and Sweden. He earned his PhD degree from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, Croatia. He is professor at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management, and director of their General MBA Program.
