You've heard about speed dating, maybe even speed networking, but have you heard of speed panels? Well that's what Mobile Monday London and UKTI and BSkyB have in store for you. You'll be hearing from a variety of practitioners and pundits talking about all things mobile marketing and advertising and the session will be ably chaired by the Godfather of Mobile Marketing, Russell Buckley, Admob Evangelist at Google and Global Chairman Emeritus of the Mobile Marketing Association.
