A major component of my job here at Cisco is to get out from behind my desk to meet with you, our partners. No matter what part of the world I’m in during these meetings, there is always one question I know will always be asked: “What are the latest trends in marketing, and how can I put them to work for my business?”
While I wish I could meet with every single one of you from around the globe, the reality is that I cannot (unless you have a DeLorean with a flux capacitor or the secret formula to human cloning).

A note to our valued Channels blog readers: Cisco blogs will undergo a little maintenance over the next few days.
While all blog content will be accessible during this time, some behind-the-scenes stuff will be happening meaning we won’t be able to post anything new.
What does this mean for you?
No dust or dirt that usually comes along with construction work, luckily. We will back back on Monday, October 4 with some great improvements. (Of course, please continue to post your comments this week and we’ll moderate them as soon as possible once the maintenance is complete.)
In the meantime, we will be posting fresh news and info on our CiscoChannels Facebook page (including a new Partner Update newscast where we recap the latest Cisco partner news in less than five minutes).
We’ll also continue posting updates on the @CiscoChannels Twitter account — be sure to follow us so you don’t miss a thing.

If you think about how people around the world are looking for and moving toward more authentic human interactions, video plays a significant role in bringing these human connections together. To emphasize the importance of this cultural shift, Cisco is evolving its brand campaign to express a broader, more human vision of what the network can offer—a richer, deeper experience of being together. Here’s the first of a series of new TV ads you can expect to see as part of the new brand campaign.
