Paul Fletcher MP seminar invitation

Seminar: Communications Policy Settings in a Time of Unprecedented Technological Change

Paul Fletcher MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Communications, will discuss the impact that unprecedented technological change is having on traditional policy assumptions in the communications sector. The disruption of industry after industry by a better, internet based offering is one of the great constants of modern economics. This rapid rate of technological change creates a profound challenge for policy makers, in the communications sector particularly.  Mr Fletcher will discuss these challenges and the policy approaches of the Abbott Government.

MR PAUL FLETCHER MP

Paul Fletcher was first elected to the Federal Parliament as the Member for Bradfield at a by-election in December 2009 and was subsequently re-elected with an increased majority in August 2010 and again in September 2013. He was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Communications on 16 September 2013 by Prime Minister the Hon Tony Abbott MHR. Prior to entering Parliament, Paul was the principal of a strategic consulting firm serving the communications sector and before that was Director, Corporate and Regulatory Affairs, at Optus for eight years. He is a well-known figure in communications policy in Australia and recently wrote a highly regarded book on broadband and telecommunications, Wired Brown Land.  Paul previously worked as Senior Advisor, and then Chief of Staff to the Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Senator Richard Alston, during the Howard Government.
