Cisco Marketing Velocity: Replays and Final Thoughts

May 15, 2014 at 6:53 am PST

I spent a great week in Chicago at Cisco Marketing Velocity and, as promised, now I’m back to share one last quick recap of the event, including the replays of the speakers’ sessions.  Hopefully you had a chance last week to take a look at my entry on Velocity about the partner award winners and VP of Global Partner Marketing, Sherri Liebo’s wrap up interview last Thursday.

I saw some fantastic presentations last week, and of course I received some wonderful feedback from partners. We all talked about becoming a “marketer of the future” and I was able to capture some thoughts on how to make the transition to marketer of the future and just what that term means. See what your colleagues, our speakers and Cisco executives have to say about making the transition to become a “marketer of the future.

What do you think it takes to be the marketer of the future? Be sure to let me know in the comments section. Read More »
