Every Cisco Live, we have the opportunity to meet our esteemed Cisco Designated VIPs in person. It is one of the most significant highlights for the Cisco Learning Network’s community managers and the Cisco Learning & Certifications organization’s leaders. This time was no different, as we had the pleasure of engaging with them throughout the week at Cisco Live Amsterdam, February 5–9, 2024.

The Cisco Designated VIP program recognizes the top contributors among Cisco online communities, including the Cisco Learning Network and the Cisco Community. Cisco VIPs are recognized for their expertise and tireless contributions. So, whenever you see an online community member identified as a Cisco VIP,  you can trust their experience and the quality of their contributions. 

Dinner with Cisco VIPs and distinguished guests

We had the privilege of honoring Cisco Designated VIPs with a special celebratory dinner hosted at Wolf Atelier on Monday, February 5, 2024. The dinner served as a humble gesture of our gratitude for all of the amazing work our VIPs have accomplished in their respective communities. Moreover, the evening gave VIPs an opportunity to connect with key members and executive leadership in Learning & Certifications, as well as within the Cisco Community. Distinguished guests in attendance from Learning and Certifications included Par Merat, Vice President; Joe Clarke, Distinguished Engineer; and Quinn Snyder, Sr. Technical Advocate.

We also took advantage of the chance to surprise our VIPs with the chance to win tech prizes, adding an element of fun to an already remarkable evening. We conducted a raffle for Apple AirPods and a mini projector, to name a few. Of course, we ended the event with group photos, capturing the joy of an amazing night with our Cisco VIPs, distinguished guests, and community leaders.
