Canadian Online Events (CoE) | The Convergence of Telecom and Retail Industries

Power Skills


Telecom retail was one of the first responders to face the challenges posed by the pandemic and changed the way companies interacted with their customers. The approach taken was remodeling the selling process. Some solutions included social distancing in stores, rearranging store layouts, payment device workarounds, etc. The future of telecom retail is an evolving customer experience. Customers will have the chance to make purchases and returns without any boundaries.

In the Canadian Online Events (CoE) series, you will have the opportunity to hear from Glentel Inc’s President & CEO, Ravi Nookala. This talk will cover Ravi Nookala’s journey in the sector. He will also illustrate how the organization’s operational efficiency and exceptional customer experience positioned Glentel Inc. as a leading connected retailer in the Canadian telecommunication industry.

Learning Objectives:

  • How does stakeholder engagement help to navigate through changes?
  • How did project management facilitate the company to become a leader in the industry?
  • Where does retail telecom stand when it comes to project management methodology?
  • What are the specific challenges in telco project management?
