VIDEO: Cisco Chairman Emeritus Morgridge on Cisco@25 and Giving Back
As part of our 25th anniversary celebration, former Chairman, President and CEO of Cisco, John Morgridge (now Chairman Emeritus) talks about the early days of Cisco’s culture of giving back…and the inception of Cisco’s Networking Academy Program. He even attempts to do a bit of an impression with an Irish accent.
The second part of the video is an address to Cisco employees to encourage us to give to global hunger relief where the Cisco Foundation will match employee donations dollar for dollar…and John and Tashia Morgridge’s Tosa Foundation will also match dollar for dollar. So, through the generosity of Cisco and the Morgridges, your $1 dollar donation actually turns into $3.
And, if you haven’t seen the video of Cisco co-founder Kirk Lougheed speaking about the early days of Cisco, please do…very interesting.
