OPK removed from Nokia World 2010 speakers list.

The Nokia World Speakers Roster has been updated. This time, OPK has been taken off the speakers list. His speaker position replaced by Niklas Savander. This is despite OPK still being Nokia CEO until September 20th (Nokia World 2010 is Sept 14-15th) it would be remarkable awkward that he would still take the opening role knowing that his job has just been swiped.

Could the list still be updated in time to include Steve Elop?

    Can’t Nokia find a better guy from top management team than this Niklas Savander? Remember he was responsible for service unit before and he hardly did anything good in service unit…

        Thanks for the link. I glanced it quickly. This book also has bad a mark for this Niklas Savander. He did not know anything about Ovi. Now he has been shaffled to the markets unit. So ridiculous! Is market unit less challenging than service unit? I highly doubt he will remain his seat for long.

      Gotta love all you armchair experts who know better than Nokia and their advisers how to run the company… 😉

    Niklas Savander can speak almost fluent english compared to the rally-english OPK and A.Vanjoki speak ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAGbrM-MMRk ) and he has some marketing background if i remember correctly.

    I think it will benefit Nokia to have a leader that understands technology(Elop), OPK was a lawyer, all he could do is count beans and play everything safe. Nokia also recently recruited Rich Green as CTO, which means more software competence in the high-middle management. Hope Nokia can start making some right decision and start taking some risks…
