Zafirovski Speaks!

Looks like Nortel CEO Mike Zafirovski is ready to meet the public. He’s giving a keynote speech at the Canadian Club on Sept. 25 in Toronto. Here’s the Canadian Club’s sales pitch:

“Perhaps no industry today faces more leadership challenges than the telecommunications business. (editor’s note: that’s a huge understatement, isn’t it?) As president and CEO of Nortel, Mike Zafirovski works at the very center of the telecom environment. His talk will focus on the challenges posed by unprecedented rapid technological change, the pressures of constant innovation and finally the fierce competitive pressures from Asian vendors. He’ll also talk about how Nortel is responding to these pressures by following a leadership philosophy of “passionate, relentless pursuit of superior results and doing the right thing” in order to thrive in this market.”

    Does the rhetoric or misleading ever cease?

    Telecom isn’t facing “leadership challenges” and it isn’t even about leadership or telecom for that matter. It is about Nortel with their major challenges.

    The Asians are doing terrific, Cisco just bought Scientific Atlanta, Alcatel bought Lucent, so where does he see the challenges outside of Nortel? Slowed at worst, everyone else is holding their own, Nortel is not.

    What in the world is he talking about? Does anything ever change there? Understatement is an understatement.

    Stanley- if telecom isn’t facing leadership challenges,then why has Alcatel decided to merge with Lucent and why has Nokia joined hands with Siemens
    knowing full well that mergers require extensive,expensive overhauls of their operations?

    did they do that just for the fun of it?

    of coarse not, look around you telecom is an ever competitive market,and needs all the cost savings advantages possible, hence the risky merger undertakings with some of the biggest names in the game.
