Well, we’re starting to wind down our coverage of Cisco Marketing Velocity and Partner Summit 2015. I’ll put a bow on it and wrap everything up in my Weekly Rewind blog tomorrow, but we still have some ground to cover.
So far, I have recapped Marketing Velocity and day one, day two and day three of Partner Summit. In addition, since we closed out the show in Montreal last week, I have also brought you interviews with John Chambers, Rob Lloyd, Edison Peres and Sherri Liebo.
I had the opportunity to speak with several other Cisco executives last week as well, including our newly named CEO successor Chuck Robbins. I know your time is valuable, so I’ve condensed their thoughts into a couple of montage videos I’d like to share with you today. First, let’s take a look at what our executives have been hearing from partners during the past year:
As you can see, Cisco partners are concerned about many of the same things we talked about all week last week. Read More »

Wow, what a blast it was to spend last week in Montreal, Canada. With Marketing Velocity and Partner Summit running in conjunction this year, it was definitely a packed agenda. We covered a lot of ground from Monday to Thursday and I want to be sure you haven’t missed anything.
This week is all about catching our breath after a whirlwind week and giving you a proper recap of both events. I’ll be wrapping up everything in my Weekly Rewind blog on Friday. Today however, let’s look back at what Sherri Liebo (@sherriliebo) had to say about Marketing Velocity 2015, including how marketers can “Be Bold” with Cisco and what her key takeaways were for the event.
Sitting down to speak with Sherri is always a treat, and hearing her thoughts on this year’s Marketing Velocity was great. It was especially nice to see how excited Sherri was for the marketing professionals at Velocity to have the opportunity to attend Cisco Partner Summit throughout the remainder of the week.

It’s always great to sit down and speak with Edison Peres and this year at Cisco Partner Summit 2015 was no different. Edison took some time out of his busy schedule last week to speak with me about his new role in the Cloud and Managed Services Partner Organization, along with why the announcements at Partner Summit last week are so important to our partners’ success.
Of course, no one tells it better than Edison, so check out what he had to say when we spoke last week.
I’ll have even more information from our executives later this week, and we’ll conclude with a Weekly Rewind that puts a cap on all of my coverage from Cisco Partner Summit 2015. In the meantime, let me know how you like these one-on-one executive interviews in the comments section.

The wrap up week of coverage for Cisco Partner Summit 2015 begins with Rob Lloyd’s thoughts from this year’s event in Montreal, Canada. Rob and I spoke about the progress of Cisco Intercloud since its launch last year at the same event.
Rob was also gracious enough to give us some insight into last week’s announcement of the Cisco OpenStack Private Cloud Bundle. Of course we also had a brief conversation on what’s on the mind of partners and what Cisco partners should be sure to take away from Cisco Partner Summit 2015.
Watch my interview with Rob and let me know what you think in the comments section.
My wrap up coverage of Partner Summit continues this week with several other executive interviews and a wrap up blog in my Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind on Friday.

As always at Cisco Partner Summit, I take the opportunity to speak with our Cisco executives throughout the week, and one of the treats of my job is having a few moments to speak with Chairman and CEO of Cisco, John Chambers.
This year, John and I took a few moments out of his busy schedule to discuss the ever-increasing pace of change in our industry. We also discussed digital disruption and how it is affecting Cisco partners, how Cisco is ready to lead in the digitization of cities, countries and companies, and what they should take away from this great event. Want to hear John’s in-depth answers to those questions and more? Check out our interview:
It’s been a great Partner Summit in Montreal. I’m heading home today, but our coverage continues next week. Stay tuned to the Cisco Partner Blog through May 8 for the entire wrap up from this year’s event.
