As the digital content lead on the social media communications team at Cisco, my primary responsibility is to capture and produce relevant and compelling stories. The end goal of these stories is always the same: provide reporters, analysts, customers, thought leaders and others interested in Cisco and the industry with a better understanding of networking technology, its power and its significance in the lives of users.
That brings me to My Networked Life: True Stories from a Connected World. This twelve-part documentary-style video series takes viewers around the world for a look at how young professionals, entrepreneurs, artists and students are using connected technology to achieve goals and realize dreams. These stories are personal, they are real and they are powerful. Each video closes with a data point from Cisco’s Visual Networking Index or the Cisco Connected World Technology Report –reinforcing the reality of the trends showcased in each episode.
While the videos do not necessarily focus on specific Cisco customers, they do focus on the areas of technology Cisco is most interested in – video, collaboration, mobility, security, cloud and core networking technology. These videos also serve as an engagement spark of sorts for communications – driving conversation about the future workforce, what the expectations are globally and what CIOs should care about and listen to.
