How innovation in the telco industry is driving sustainable impact on a global scale

Kingfisher Co-Founder and CEO, Georgiann Reigle shares how Kingfisher is helping to drive more value for the mobile ecosystem through a 1-for-1 device exchange, and the integral role consumers and carriers play in embracing new and innovative models of phone ownership to drive more device lifetimes.

"Ultimately what we need to get to is a one for one exchange. For every new device that is being sold is we are bringing a device back. That requires a significant amount of consumer behaviour change."
