Ian Volans

An independent consultant with more than 30 years’ experience in the mobile and telecoms sectors, Ian Volans has been working with IBC since 2005 to ensure the event remains abreast of developments in digital multimedia consumption and IP distribution.  During a sabbatical from mobile in 2002, he developed extensive broadcast experience while working on the XVII Commonwealth Games in Manchester in the UK, managing television production and video news distribution for the Queen’s Jubilee Baton Relay and co-producing some 50 outside broadcasts with the BBC, including the official send-off for the relay from Buckingham Palace.  In what spare time he has, Ian is researching the biography of the prominent Victorian sports administrator John Graham Chambers who was the author of the Queensberry Rules for boxing and also helped shape and codify athletics, track cycling and rowing.
