“Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around, You’ll Stay Around”, sings Frank Sinatra in the Fred Fisher song ‘Chicago’ published in 1922.
Well, come to the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois this week (16th and 17th November 2011) and let Cisco show you around Booth #239 where we’ll show you some cool demonstrations, and talk to you about your business and technical issues and how Cisco can help.

As a follow-up to my last blog post, here is the Reader’s Digest version of how to create social media engagement.
Each step is a word:
Listen • Integrate • Share • Talk • Enable Talk • Nurture • Evaluate • Refine
If you have paid close attention, you’ve probably discovered that the first letter of each word put together spell the word LISTENER. Makes it easy to remember, right? It all starts and ends with listening!
If you don’t do anything else, just listen. If you’re new to social media, listen first, engage next. If you’ve been doing social for a while, keep listening. Always! Not just during your launch period or around your event. Listening can help you get an outside perspective on your company. It can help you gain real-time unfiltered feedback, uncover issues, pain points and new opportunities. It can also be used to gain an edge on your competition, and can even help you avoid or minimize a crisis situation. Hint: Read More »
