John Chambers: View from Davos at WEF with CNBC

January 29, 2010 - 5 Comments

At the World Economic Forum 2010, Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers chats with the always great interviewer Maria Bartiromo of CNBC.  This is John’s 11th straight attendance at WEF and he compares this year’s WEF to last year’s and talks about the “mood” of fellow WEF attendees.

CNBC writes: “Most of the global economies have stabilized,” John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, said. “Here in Davos, the mood is much more positive than a year ago, especially for the technology companies. And that’s natural because when economies start to recover, you apply first technology – get your productivity up – then you add jobs.”

  1. This was yet another very strong quarter with a number of record financial results for Cisco, closing the fiscal year in a tremendous position of strength -- a compelling financial model, a well-tuned innovation engine and solid execution on growth strategy

  2. This was recorded almost 3 months ago and I can agree - the mood really is getting better so this was a good call made by Chambers.

  3. The mood in my world (small business market in NYC) is still very doom-and-gloom. But it's encouraging to hear Mr. Chambers demonstrate how things are improving globally. It's clear that improvements and innovations in communications will be a strong motivator for reshaping and rebuilding our economy. (his demonstration with his video camera kinda weakened the message a bit by trivializing how large of an impact video over the web will have).

  4. Thanks for sharing this interview with us :)
