Win a Christmas Face-to-Face with Your Mates, without Travelling Place-to-Place

- November 26, 2009 - 21 Comments

Have mates living in Australia or New Zealand that you’d like to sit across the table and catch up with face-to-face? 

Then encourage them to enter the Cisco Australia/New Zealand “Christmas Connections” Contest by Dec. 6 for a chance to win the first-place prize of Christmas dinner over Cisco TelePresence.  Check out this video to see what this “Christmas in high-definition” experience would be like.
