Traditional Telecommunications players and investors are increasingly being challenged by Digital (OTT) players who are destroying their value exponentially. In order to defend their declining market share, traditional Telecommunications and Media companies must develop new business models to bridge the gap with the Digital challengers. This requires the attraction of bright talent that can think outside of the box and can act faster and in more innovative ways. With the demand for experienced CMTD professionals in emerging markets outstripping supply, whilst operators in mature markets are restructuring and rightsizing, it is vital to search Talent globally and to discern the right cultural fit.

Over the coming decade, Emerging Markets will overtake the West as the main consumer market, and this will demand new levels of innovation and talent management from Consumer players. In sub-Saharan Africa, the under-50 population will grow 23 percent, reaching about 700 million by 2020 and in emerging markets a billion new middle-class consumers will be added. Combined with the rise of the digital consumer, new markets and distribution channels will change the industry. This will result in as many losers as winners among Consumer companies, and the war for talented executives capable of executing strategies on the ground will be one of the key competitive assets.
