Before the Climb: Cisco Engineer Takes Us with Him to Mt Everest

In early May, Cisco engineer, Brian Dickinson will be at the base camp on Mt Everest just hours before his ascent. We plan to be there with him.

Before he leaves the States, he will talk with us while he’s still at sea level -- from his home -- so we can learn more about what is motivating his incredible drive.

Meet Brian via WebEx this Thursday! Register now!

Brian is on a mission to climb The Seven Summits, to take toys to orphanages in the countries he visits and raise money for AIDS Research. His personal journey has become an amazing global adventure that is reaching far beyond his expectations.

We will have a chance to meet Brian at sea level this Thursday. He will visit with us via WebEx to describe his journey and talk about his first three climbs. Then, on April 1, via Cisco Telepresence, Brian will conduct a science class for kids at an orphanage in Katmandu.

We are hoping the next time we’ll see Brian Read More »

No Voice? No Problem

Guest Post from Bonnie Ho, Collaboration Product Marketing Manager at Cisco:

28. That is how many days I’ve worked in complete silence…not saying a single word.  As a product marketing manager here at Cisco, my days are typically filled with back-to-back meetings and talking regularly for 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week. I know you’re probably wondering two things: Why did I do this? Or more importantly, how was I able to do this?

I was recently diagnosed with vocal cord nodules, which is a mass of tissue that grows on the vocal cords due to strenuous voice practices. Those who use their voice constantly are susceptible to getting this, including teachers, singers, politicians and apparently Cisco product marketing managers.

My doctor recommended 4 weeks of complete voice rest to allow the nodules to shrink away and fully recover. Being the social person I am, and knowing how my job requires me to talk constantly, how was I ever going to survive in the workplace without talking for 28 days?
