Getting Ready for Cisco’s Social Media Summit! #ragancisco

- May 3, 2011 - 12 Comments

Tomorrow we open Cisco’s 2nd annual Social Media Summit! We are excited to have a packed house and are looking forward to learning and connecting with all of you! Alex Romano and I are kicking off tomorrow’s Video session and we thought we’d give you some quick and easy video interview tips prior to the kickoff… via video of course! 😉

Got any other good video tips to share? Leave a comment below!

Don’t forget to tweet during the event! The hashtag is #ragancisco

  1. I think you will do just fine. You do not need any video tips. Try to be relaxed and all natural, this is my motto when i have an interview or a presentation.

    • Yeah, I agree with you Eforie. Go by the plan and relax and all will be well.

  2. Is there a livestream public version somewhere?

    • Hi Bilal, unfortunately, there is not a live stream since the summit is for registered attendees. We will, however, be posting blog highlights at the end of each day. Please also follow the @CiscoSocial twitter handle for real-time updates! Thanks!

  3. Deanna & Alex!!! That's a great intro!!! You had some very good pointers. Love how you were out amongst all the outside noise! Both of you are great in front of the camera - good luck on Friday!!!

    • Thanks, Lori! We thought we'd break a few rules to show people what not to do :-)

  4. Fun! Maybe blotting paper should be included in social media starter kits:)

    • I think so too! ;-) haha. Thanks for watching, Olivia!

  5. arrhh to bad i missed it, i would have loved to be there..

    • @Frank - there is always next year! We'll be sure to post information on our next Social Media Summit here on this blog. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by!

  6. HA! Great video clip. Some simple things often forgotten. I was hoping to see more of this summit. Are there any resources online?

    • @Tom - thanks! Glad you enjoyed the video! We have several post-summit blog posts on this blog but unfortunately we were unable to post additional resources since it was a paid event. Attendees were able to download the presentations and resources using a password. Hope to see you there next year :-) Thanks for reading.
