CiscoLive! Milan 2015 kicks off on the 26th January and five Cisco IT graduates have been given the opportunity to attend the event as members of the IT Management (ITM) Program. On-site responsibilities will revolve around showcasing the impact & outcomes of Cisco IT to event attendees. We will also aim to reduce IT cost of delivering the ITM Program by assisting with operational activities, whilst gaining exposure to Cisco technologies, customers & partners.

Meet the team…

“Whilst at the event, I’m looking forward to learning how Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is helping to radically accelerate application life cycles within the Data Center and how moving an IT organisation to a service based offering improves its resiliency and speed.”

“Being given the chance to attend a Cisco Live event so early in my career is an incredible opportunity. One of the things I’m looking forward to the most is having the chance to directly interact with our stakeholders. The opportunity to learn what is happening within their own companies and what they’re doing in response to that, as well as sharing with them how Cisco operates, can hopefully help drive change and make a valuable difference for myself and our stakeholders.”

“Attending Cisco Live in Milan this month will not only give me the opportunity to collaborate with the wider Cisco IT team and expand my network – it will also allow me to gain a better understanding of the problems our customers and partners are facing in their own organisations.”

GemmaGemma Trowbridge, IT Analyst

“Going to Cisco Live will put me outside of my comfort zone, which, I feel, is the best way to learn! Interacting with stakeholders and learning more about the impact Cisco’s technology and solutions have on our customers is something I wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to experience during my day-to-day role so it’ll be a great experience.”

“The IT Management Program at Cisco Live will be a great opportunity to learn more about IT’s evolving role within an organisation. With technology growing at an ever-increasing rate, how can IT leverage the mix of business and technical expertise in order to evolve and continue to provide value? That’s something I’m eager to explore, further.”

We’re really looking forward to being part of this event, learning from and meeting some of Cisco’s leaders, customers and partners. If you’re going to be at the event and see us around – don’t be shy! It’d be great to hear from you.
