New #SocialRoundup: #CiscoChat Heats Up

Welcome to our latest #SocialRoundup blog series about new social media efforts and best practices. Today, we want to highlight #CiscoChat, our new social media chat program that has been picking up steam recently. The concept was simple: create a standard method for our customers, partners, influencers and employees to engage with Cisco and each other in real time through a single hashtag.

We’ve held three chats to-date, involving hundreds of participants and resulting in nearly 20 million impressions. And we’ve only just begun. Check out highlights from recent #CiscoChat events below.

What Empowers You To Be Fearless?

This #CiscoChat was hosted by the Women of Impact team and joined together Catalina Kowal from Cisco’s Empowered Women’s Network, Cindy Cooley from Cisco’s Men for Inclusion, and Barbara Koch from the Passion Project to discuss how being fearless isn’t really about eliminating fear from our everyday lives completely, but more about finding ways to make our fears not hinder us from being adventurous, from taking risks, from getting up after we fall down, or from being our own advocates. See the full #CiscoChat recap on Storify.

Automation Fair begins tomorrow!

Automation Fair begins tomorrow!

Well, this is it folks. The big day has finally arrived and Automation Fair begins tomorrow. Our intrepid team has descended on Chicago at McCormick Place West and is gearing up to show all that Cisco has to offer at booth #239!

We hope you’ve enjoyed all of the social media activity over the last two weeks.

We’ve seen our social media strategy for Automation Fair. We’ve seen Peter Granger describe both Cisco’s presence and booth.  We’ve seen Mark Wylie discuss machine builders. We’ve seen Paul Didier discuss convergence. And, of course, we’ve seen Kevin Davenport tell you why you must attend Automation Fair…or die.

To make things convenient for you to follow our social media activities, we’ve created a Storify instance which will aggregate all of our content creation into one spot. So follow this link to see all of our activity as it unfolds:
