Key messages on mobile payments - Setting the scene

Keith’s reputation in the mobile industry is for service provision in the dealer segment. Since he sold Yes Telecom to Vodafone, Keith has pursued several new, varied and exciting enterprises. Perhaps most interestingly is one which sees him back in familiar surroundings, but in an entirely new sector: mobile payments. The idea has snowballed into a business that offers consumers the chance to buy products with their phone with a sophisticated, secure and robust solution, which has already attracted high level interest from global players and could meet Keith’s vision of revolutionising the way people shop.
