Win a Trip on Cisco and the Borderless Networks Week in Review

Blog PicIf you had US$15,000 to take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?  I’ve always wanted to visit Perth, Bangalore, and Brasilia myself, but sadly, I’m not elligable to win the Unified Access Challenge.  However, if you’re reading this -- you probably are!  Basically, you watch an accelerated TechWiseTV episode with JimmyRay Purser, Robb Boyd (with a short Ike video too), and then answer a few questions about Unified Access.

The challenge is open for three more weeks and there are a few versions you need to choose from. If you’re a Cisco Partner you need to take the Partner version.  If you don’t know whether you’re a partner or not, you’re probably not, so don’t fret.  Because for non-partners we have the challenge in both English and Spanish: Read More »

Housekeeping Post – Where to Find Borderless Networks? Also, Theme Week!

Hi All!  This post is to give you an overview of where you’ll find Borderless Networks over the next month.  Some of the events listed are webinars you can attend, just click on the magic hyperlinks to register.  Others are conferences we’ll be at, and others are stops on our BYOD roadshow.   

Also, for this week & next the Borderless blog will have a theme week.  Theme weeks is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and what better time to start than Halloween?  I am hopeful that theme weeks will bring out some interesting posts from some of our writers and will hopefully be fun for readers.   The theme for this and next week is, ”Isn’t it scary”.  I know I’ve already broken this concept of theme week by having it be for two weeks.  But I really like Halloween.  If you have suggestions for theme weeks (or really hate this idea) please let me know in the comments.

This blog comes at the request of a tweet from @AlisonScammell.

“I’m looking at #webinar ice breaker ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions? #webex”

What a great question!

WebEx is incredibly useful for online meetings, but bringing a group of people together across time zones in remote locations can present some challenges when it comes to warming up the room. We posted some tips last week for adding color to your meetings which creates a mood. And we’ve talked about using polls and the whiteboard.

But what else can you do to get things moving? Here are 15 ideas that we think are well suited for online meetings or webinars. Read More »
