Over the past few months, you may have noticed that we evolved and expanded the Cisco Learning Partner program. You may have also noticed that we made training easier to find with the Learning Partner Locator.
What you may not know is that Cisco Learning Partners have also expanded their training offerings to include innovative solutions and new modalities, such as training via TelePresence, iPads, iPhones, and WebEx.
The Channels blog sat down for a chat with Andres Sintes, Global Director of the Worldwide Learning Partner Channel, to find out more about the program enhancements, its growth, how partners can redeem learning credits, and some of the cool new offerings available.

Yesterday, we held a live, interactive video broadcast via UStream with Andrew Sage, VP WW Small Business Sales, and Lief Koepsel, Director of Service Marketing, on Building a Profitable Small Business Practice.
The broadcast was directed toward our Small Business channel partners and discussed what partners can do before, during, and after a sale to maximize profitability. Then, we took viewer questions from Twitter and Facebook and answered them on the air.
If you missed our first broadcast, worry not! This is the first of many broadcasts we’ll be holding using UStream and we have quite a few planned for Partner Summit (in the Channels Buzz community) with key Cisco executives.
Click play button in the embedded video below to watch the replay and hear answers to the audience questions we took during the broadcast. And join our Advantage Now! partner event by visiting the virtual event registration page or the live event registration page and sign up to attend either event on April 14 where you’ll learn about building momentum in small business.

Jennings and his research team have studied more than 100,000 companies and published four best-selling books on thought leadership.
