We Know What Cisco Partners Have Been Doing this Summer

Guess what, partners: We’ve been reading your blogs, perusing your Facebook pages, and scanning your Twitter feeds to find out what you’ve been up to this summer. (Everything we saw was rated G, don’t worry!)

So what have we found? We’ve discovered that many of you are doing some really cool things. For instance, some of you have scored really interesting customer wins, while others have snagged celebrities to star in your ads, or you’re working on raising money for charity. We unearthed so many diverse and interesting tidbits that we’ve decided that periodically here on the blog we’ll showcase the cool stuff that our partners are up to. Here’s a roundup of what just some of you are doing.

Nexus IS posted a video on their Facebook page about their customer win with Global Cash Access (GCA). (We wrote about their win here on the blog, too.) The video features interviews with GCA’s CEO and VP of IT discussing how Nexus impacted and improved their business.

Meanwhile, Force 3 posted a news roundup video on their Facebook page called Great News, which highlights recent goings-on at the company. Great work, guys!

If you’re like the nearly 30% of mobile workers who check their smartphones every six-to-12 minutes during downtime – for those doing the math, that’s nearly 80 times a day provided that you’re not checking during work hours or in your sleep—you want easy ways to help you keep up with the latest news and info.

Ready, Set, BlogHer: Behind the Scenes with Cisco (#BlogHerbet)

March 23, 2011 at 4:20 pm PST

E-ticket: check. Hotel room reservation: check. Fancy outfit: check. Cute shoes: check, check. We’re only a day away from BlogHer|BET 2011 and just like how participants are getting ready for this event, so are we at Cisco. But our list goes something like this: Reception hors d’oeuvres: check. Sound: check. Lighting: check. TelePresence Suites: check. Virtual Concierge: check…and check.

This will be the first time in BlogHer history that we bring women together for a few hours in 3 US locations for idea exchange, networking and some good, old-fashioned fun. Participants will be able to see and interact with each other live and in life size. Yes, ladies: life size. Amy Friedlander Hoffman, Founder of Priority Digital Media and BlogHer mentor looks forward to this experience: “I’m familiar with virtual spaces, however I’ve never been to a Public TelePresence Suite before. Priority Digital Media is a strategic consulting practice that focuses on content and distribution strategies across TV, broadband and mobile and thus, I am excited to see how this next level of interaction will translate into future entertainment experiences”.

The Social Soap Box: Wining, Dining and Blogging

December 1, 2010 at 2:01 pm PST

One of the many benefits of social media is that it creates personal connections.  As a Cisco blogger I enjoy meeting many people online, but every so often my role gives me the chance to meet interesting people face-to-face. I recently attended my first Networking Nine event titled “Blurring the Boundaries: The Future of Blogging” hosted by the San Francisco chapter of the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators). This event in particular, brought together a small group of senior communications professionals to enjoy a great dinner, fine wine and an in-depth discussion about their respective experiences on blogging.
