During his speech entitled "Art of Innovation", Kawasaki suggested that the
concepts of "value" and "uniqueness" should be in positive correlation to
achieve the right results, and that furthermore, products and services should
have the following 5 features: Depth, Intelligence, Elegance, Power, and
Integrity. Having emphasized that Turkcell had taken all these factors into
account, Kawasaki commented that Turkcell represented a major opportunity for
corporations in Turkey with its leading role maintained with the
infrastructure and smart technologies that it offers. 

Approximately 100 business leaders spoke on panels entitled "Revolution of the
Mobile World", "Cloud Computing and Digital Office Technologies", "New Media",
"New Commerce", and "Our Work, Employees, and Lives Get Mobilized" during the

Selen Kocabas. The summit, where Turkcell's products and services, which
create value for corporates were presented, was attended by 3,500 visitors,
composed of Turkcell's solution partners, vendors, and customers. 

During his opening speech, Turkcell CEO Sureyya Ciliv commented that what
matters, was not the "smart" technologies, but those who adapt these
technologies to their jobs at the right time and in the right manner. Sureyya
Ciliv went on to say that "Today, the infrastructure and smart technologies
that we have, strengthen us in a way that enables us to compete globally.
Now, Turkey is in a perfect position in mobile communications, fiber and
cloud computing. As Turkcell, we have formed a structure that offers our
customers both mobile and IT solutions from a single point. Each and every
example presented during the Turkcell Technology Summit by our partners and
