Digital and Social

I have written many blogs over the years but never have I had so much trouble finding the right words as with this post. All kinds of thoughts are rushing through my head at a million miles per hour and I can’t seem to hold on to any of them. Then I take a deep breath and here it goes: today is my last day at Cisco.

I have had a great dance. I am so grateful for the people and organizations that have come into my life – both virtually and physically, – and for the memories they have given me. I have waltzed through some unforgettable experiences and cha cha’d my way to having the privilege of leading a team I’ll be forever proud of.

As I take my last bow as a Cisco employee, I want to thank you for all your support, for reading my blogs, for sharing and commenting on them, and for engaging with me in other ways. I also want to thank all who have participated or are participating in any of the programs or activities that my team has built. There are several but I would like to highlight three:

So as the curtain falls, I reflect once more on the past few years and my heart is filled with gratitude. I have had a great dance. And I owe it all to you.

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter (@petra1400).

Best wishes to all!
