You are invited to a Meet The Author Breakfast session with Didier Lombard to celebrate the US publication of his book The Second Life of Networks. This new book discusses how networks of all kinds – human, social, creative and financial, are forming around the high-speed pathways of the 21st century. Didier Lombard's career has spanned all aspects of the telecommunications and IT industry, and he currently serves as the Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Orange-France Telecom Group.
In the Second Life of Networks, the reader learns how we are already experiencing the growth phase of the second life of networks. This represents a new and exceptional opportunity for human and social progress, one at least as important as that occasioned by the first life of networks. It can also contribute to raising emerging economies as well as sustaining and reinforcing the developed ones.
Please join us for some coffee and patisserie and purchase an advance, signed copy of this important new book. There are a limited number of copies available.
