Partner-Weekly-Rewind-v2Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco partner news and stories, as well as point you to important, Cisco-related partner content you may have missed along the way. Here’s what you might have missed this week:

Off the Top

This week Cisco won several of CRN’s Annual Report Card (ARC) awards presented at this week’s XChange event in San Antonio.  Faisal Hanafi, Steve Benvenuto and Ricardo Moreno (@RicardoMoreno) from Cisco were on hand to receive the honors.

We take great pride in winning these awards, but all of us at Cisco realize that we don’t win awards like this without the efforts of loyalty and our partners. We are only successful when you’re successful!

With a focus on “Elevating the Customer Experience,” the XChange event brought together a strong line-up of speakers, favorite great example being Seth Mattison of FutureSight Labs who talked about how we build connections are changing in the Digital Age. I also appreciated the insight of Gary Pica from TruMethods and the idea of unlocking your personal super power.

You can read all about both of these speakers and all the other exciting speakers from earlier posts. The team and I enjoyed meeting with many of you in Texas and we look forward to our next face-to-face event – the Best of Breed (BOB) Conference in October.
