STUTTGART, Germany – In little under two weeks the entire Conversations team will be setting off on our Nokia World 09 adventure (2-3 September), to bring you our take on things as they happen. As I mentioned in yesterday’s NW09 keynote speaker story, we’ve managed to secure a bunch of interviews with a broad range of smart Nokia folk at NW09, and we’re keen to get your suggestions for questions you’d like us to ask them on your behalf as the esteemed Conversations readership.
Over the coming week we’ll be selecting the best questions you suggest, ready to unleash them on our interviewees at Nokia World 09.
Read on to find out who we’ll be chatting to throughout the event, and leave your suggestions for questions in the comments section inside.
In terms of how to direct your questions, we’re speaking to Nokia people involved in a number of areas, including navigation and context aware services, Maemo, Ovi Store, mobile gaming, music and design.
Don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of many of the folk listed below (we’re guilty too, as a few names were new to us too!), but the most important thing to remember here is that we have a rare chance to explore these exciting areas of Nokia with some interesting and debate-inspiring questions aimed at the people in the know. So have a think and share your question suggestions.
Here’s the list of people and their respective speciality areas:
- Christof Hellmis (VP Product, People and Places)
- Eric John (Director, Ovi Store)
- Juha Kokkonen (Director, Explore, discover)
- Jo Harlow (VP, Category Management, Live)
- Liz Schimel (VP, Music)
- Janne Heikkinen (Director, Product Mgmt, Maemo)
- Mark Ollila (Director, Technology and Strategy, Games)
- Jonne Harju (Design)
We hope you feel inspired to get involved, as all of us here on Conversations are keen to have your input.
