Dear GTWN Networker, Friend, and Colleague,

It is with great joy that we would like to invite you to our second annual Global Telecom Women's Network (GTWN) Welcome Cocktail taking place on the evening of Monday 24 February 2014 from 7 - 9 p.m. in association with the GSMA Connected Women, mWomen and WiTT Women in Telecoms and Technology. We are pleased to welcome TELSTRA as our gold sponsor and to have last year's sponsor, NEXTEL join us as well.

Please see the enclosed invitation and the Palau Moxo web site, (http://www.palaumoxo.com/en/index.html)

During the last 22 years, GTWN events have brought together senior women executives to identify future trends and the most challenging issues of our industry and to find solutions for them. These fora have consistently been at the forefront of not only the wireless world but the social, economic, and geo-political factors affecting the world's citizens.

This year, we will be launching a new global initiative, about which we are most excited and hope you will be too as well as in participating in it.

We look forward to continuing this dialogue and thought exchange with you in the elegant and intimate environment provided by the Palau Moxo.

We are also very pleased to communicate that our honored guests and keynote speakers will include Viviane Reding, Vice-president and Commissioner responsible for justice, fundamental rights and citizenship of the European Commission, GSMA Board Member and CEO, Anne Bouverot and Kate McKenzie, COO of Telstra.

*** This invitation is a personal invitation and is not transferable. It is also good, if you desire, for one mentoree. Thank you for replying by Wednesday 05 February 2014 and using the RSVP form at the bottom of this email.. ***

We very much look forward to seeing you and to having as always a provocative and productive discussion and debate about the issues, challenges, and solutions facing our industry today.
