"So to paraphrase Elvis, 'A little less conversation, a little more action', ICSTIS is the regulatory body that helped monetise mobile, spike spammers and tame the tellybox. It delivered 100% per annum growth to £1.2bn, a 70% reduction in complaint levels and a funding levy a third the rate it was 10 years ago (sounds good so far - Ed). A body that has delivered Codes in a fast-changing world, reformed its governance and increased its openness (there are a few other Government body who could take a leaf out of the ICSTIS book). We have prosecuted without fear(mostly) when we had to, but tried wherever possible, with increasing success, to work with the industry to design its way out of having to.It's dead easy to vote for George so there's no excuse. You just text NMA 4 (there's a space between NMA and the 4) and send it to 83338. Get your votes in before the 1st June. Winner announced on the 28th June at the NMA Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
Regulating premium rate can seem like riding a tiger, but Mr Kidd, at the helm of ICSTIS, have done so for many years and developed a framework that has been studie and copied in Europe, the USA, Australia, Africa and Asia.
Despite a shameful lack of language skills, George's capacity to make a memorable impact , often with sign and body language, has made ICSTIS legendary from Tower Bridge to Tokyo, from Bermondsey to Budapest and from Sydney to Swedish Beers nights."
VOTE NOW!! You know it makes sense ;)
