Good morning everyone, and welcome to Cisco Live! Australia and New Zealand. We’re in Melbourne for the fourth year running. We have three action-packed days lined up, and we’re looking forward to connecting with our customers, partners, industry colleagues, journalists and analysts.
We’re running the show around four key pillars (fitting, given it’s our fourth year): technical education, technology evaluation, networking, and thought leadership, so there’s something for everyone. All the latest hot topics will be addressed, including the Internet of Everything (IoE), cloud and security, among others. You can find all the agendas, exhibitor listings, keynote sessions and maps on the official website.
We are very pleased today to have Wim Elfrink, Cisco’s Executive Vice President of Industry Solutions and Chief Globalisation Officer as our opening keynote speaker. Wim’s reputation in the industry is testament to a long and distinguished career across the globe. Recognised as Cisco’s “Corporate Entrepreneur in Residence,” he is the key visionary, architect, leader, and champion of the company’s “Internet of Everything” initiative.
We’re also extremely pleased to welcome Mick Colliss to the show, our guest keynote speaker. He’s represented Australia at national championships – at Sudoku! I urge you to listen to his talk on Friday, his message is one that’s relevant for everyone, whatever their career or hobby.
