Let’s Kick Off Cisco Partner Summit and Marketing Velocity

MVPS

Cisco Partner Summit and Cisco Marketing Velocity 2015 are coming up fast! The combination of these two events will create an unprecedented opportunity for sales and marketing professionals to interact  in Montreal. I am counting down the days until I can meet with many of you in person. I can’t wait to finally put some faces to the names. I’m also looking forward to reconnecting with several of you who I met at previous partner events.

Let’s kick off both events with some helpful information.

First, I realize not all of you will be able to attend the event in Montreal, so I encourage you to take advantage of Virtual Partner Summit (VPS). This is a fantastic opportunity to watch Cisco executives via live streaming video, learn about new technology solutions, or see what’s new in marketing innovation. Registration opens today.  We don’t want you to miss out!

Let us be your eyes and ears on the ground in Montreal. We’ll have recaps, tweets, and pictures that keep you posted on everything going on during the week. You can always find the latest information at:

For those of you just getting started on Social Media, we want to help. Check out our video tutorial. Let us know if you have additional questions via the comment section below.

Off the Top

Sherri Liebo provided an update on how Cisco has marketed the Cisco Partner Ecosystem since its launch last March at Cisco Partner Summit. It’s a great look at how far the we’ve come with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem and how Cisco will continue to work to grow it.

There will be more to come in April during Cisco Partner Summit 2015 and at Cisco Marketing Velocity 2015, but be sure to read Sherri’s blog and let us know what you think about the strides Cisco made since last year.

Cisco Partner Ecosystem Marketing Update

Remember back in November, when I talked about the Cisco Partner Ecosystem in the Midmarket? Between that blog and a closer look at the Cisco Partner Plus Program a month later, I took a bit of your time to discuss how the Cisco Partner Ecosystem had grown to include so many partners and opportunities in the Midmarket. It was just one example of how the Cisco Partner Ecosystem has grown since it was introduced at Cisco Partner Summit 2014 in Las Vegas.

As we draw ever closer to both Cisco Partner Summit and Cisco Marketing Velocity this year, I wanted to touch base with you briefly to take one more look at how we have marketed and grown since Partner Summit 2014.

Cisco Partner Ecosystem Launch

When Bruce Klein introduced the Cisco Partner Ecosystem at Cisco Partner Summit 2014, he touted its designed intention of attracting more independent software vendors (ISVs), which it has absolutely done. Bruce also pointed out that the Cisco Solution Partner Program was a core piece of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem that would give solution partners more visibility, enable channel partners to deliver business outcomes, and connect solution partners with channel partners.

Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind – April 11, 2014

Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco partner news and stories, as well as point you to important, Cisco-related partner content you may have missed along the way. Here’s what you might have missed this week:

And we’re back. After taking the last couple of weeks to attend and wrap up the coverage for Cisco Partner Summit we’re back in the normal swing of things with the Partner Weekly Rewind. Let’s get back to it…

Off the Top

Before we move away completely from Cisco Partner Summit 2014, I provided one last recap blog this week. Be sure to check out the final recap for this year’s event. It contains a couple of executive videos about what’s on partners’ minds and what the key takeaways were for this year’s Cisco Partner Summit. In addition, there is a highlight video at the end you don’t want to miss. It’s proof positive that we are indeed, Amazing Together.

Be sure to keep following our Partner Ambassadors from this year’s event and drop us a comment congratulating the winners of our social media contests!

Cisco Partner Summit will be in Montreal in 2015. I hope to see many of you there again, and if you can’t make the trip up to Canada, we will be providing full coverage through Virtual Partner Summit (VPS) and social media as always. Read More »

A Big Thanks to the 2014 Partner Ambassadors

We continually look to provide partner perspective on everything we do for our partners. As such, our ambassadors at events like Cisco Partner Summit 2014 are invaluable. This is the third year of the Partner Ambassador program and we continue to look for ways to improve the program breadth and depth.

This year, we had 10 Cisco Partner Summit Ambassadors who represented different backgrounds and regions. We invited each of them to participate in Cisco Partner Summit 2014 as official partner ambassadors who focused on tweeting and blogging about things they heard at our annual partner event.

There is always a wealth of partner stories to tell at Cisco Partner Summit, and who better to tell them than the partners themselves. Some partners were on site in Las Vegas, while others participated via Virtual Partner Summit (VPS), but in both cases, the partner ambassadors did great work in capturing everything they heard last week.
