This quarter, I had the privilege to work on a stretch assignment in the Education Marketing Team, to manage the Exhibit Booth and the dashboard for the Virtual Event Forum for Education Leaders, 2013.  It will be held on March 19 (Americas, and EMEA) and March 20 (Asia-Pacific), and will feature sessions with nineteen education thought leaders and innovators who  transforming education today.

I didn’t know what I was signing up for other than my colleague, Gary Serda, telling me it was going to be easy.  From bi-weekly, weekly, daily meetings, planning an event is anything but easy.  However, it’s been a very rewarding experience being able to work with colleagues in the Field, Sales, Events and so many others to learn about their passion and commitment to Education. file

To give you a sneak preview on what I’ve been working on, I’ve been working with many talented individuals to build out the Exhibit Booths, including the Learning Through Collaboration, Commitment to Education and a few new ones we can’t wait to share with you.  Inside the Exhibit booths, you’ll be able to find brochures, videos, case studies and many more for attendees to view and download into the briefcase.  There will be over 30 Cisco experts who will be staffing the booths throughout the day to welcome and answer any questions attendees might have during the event.

On top of managing the Exhibit Booths, I was given a fun activity, the trivia challenge (written by me!).  Attendees can test their knowledge by clicking on “Trivia Challenge” in the top navigation.  You’ll have to be fast in this trivia challenge (hint, hint) to earn the most points.  The trivia challenge is also a super fun way to challenge your peers.  There will be a leaderboard displaying who’s on top.  Be the one to knock your peers from that #1 spot!

So what are you waiting for?  Register here to attend the Virtual Event Forum for Education Leaders on Tuesday, March 19, 2013.  Did I forget to tell you, the event is free so tell your friends and colleagues about it!  Look forward to seeing you on March 19th!
