Mark Durrant of Motorola at IPRA Summit

Talking about what Motorola does = the wireless world and seamless mobility. Motorola wanted to understand how new technology would impact on the way it communicates with its various audiences. To help it do this it organised a round table summit under Chatham House rules at St George’s House.

The audience was varied including lawyers, journalists, politicians and analysts including the ubiquitous and essential Charles Arthur of The Guardian.
