WASHINGTON, December 2, 2009 – The director of the Federal Communication Commission’s task force dealing with broadband adoption and usage will give the keynote remarks at the Broadband Breakfast Club on Tuesday, December 8, 2009. Registration for the program, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., is available here.
Brian David, who is the Adoption and Usage Director for the FCC’s Omnibus Broadband Initiative, will offer remarks kicking off December’s discussion, which is “Setting the Table for the National Broadband Plan: Bridging the Digital Divide.”
With so much activity happening in the past 24 hours on the broadband adoption front – the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s new grant to the American Library Association, and the NCTA’s “Adoption Plus” program – there’s never been a better time to discuss the subject.
Adoption and Usage is one of three sub-groups of the FCC’s broadband initiative, which is due by February 17, 2010. The other two are broadband deployment and national purposes.
David, who has held senior management positions where he helped build several entrepreneurial technology and communications companies, has also covered media and telecom clients as a strategy consultant and investment banker. His posts on the FCC’s Broadband.gov blog are available at http://blog.broadband.gov/?authorId=10373
Also, an interview of Brian David by David Weinberger is available at http://broadbandstrategyweek.com/?p=75.
David also ran business development and sales for Visage Mobile, ran consumer marketing and worked in strategy and business development for data services company NorthPoint Communications, and handled business development for Moxi Digital. Prior to his operating experience, he was a media banker at Goldman Sachs and a consultant to telecommunications clients at Bain & Company. He earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.A., cum laude, from Duke University.
