FCS Poised for the future, says Chairman

Posted on 17/06/2014

The ChairmanA 'year of change' in 2013 has left FCS with a clear vision and purpose for the future, says Chairman Justin Orde in his annual report to Members.

"The need for a clear and all-embracing voice to speak out for business-to-business communications has never been clearer or more urgent," he said.

"FCS’s excellent and long-standing relationships with Ofcom, PhonepayPlus and the various industry stakeholder groups is not enough, by itself, to gain the kind of traction our industry needs to ensure markets are transparent, competition is free, and the vital, enabling capabilities of high quality business-grade communications are understood and appreciated beyond the confines of our own industry. So your FCS Board committed their time and experience to developing FCS into an articulate and future-proof mouthpiece for the industry.

"The Federation now has a clear vision and a clear strategy to become 'the single go-to organization for the converged business communications market'. Our new logo and our new website are the first fruits of reflect this commitment. Not only is FCS still what FCS has always been – a committed and knowledgable network of industry professionals, dealing with the detailed issues affecting our industry. But FCS is also the only organization with the history, the breadth and the membership firepower to represent our industry’s big-picture aspirations to policy-makers and pundits.

"It’s a big vision that will see FCS growing and developing to embrace new members and new technologies in the years to come."
