VIDEO: Cisco’s John Chambers @ WEF

January 24, 2008 - 1 Comment

Our Chairman and CEO, John Chambers, is a regular attendee of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. In this video produced for and posted by WEF, he answers the following questions:1. What does the Annual Meeting theme “the Power of Collaborative Innovation” mean to your business?2. In which new ways are people and organizations collaborating? How important is this for effective competition in your industry?3. Do you think we are seeing a significan shift in the way the public and private sectors can collaborate? What are the implications for business?4. In what ways is Cisco using new communications channels, such as blogging and social networking websites to reach internal and external audiences? Have these channels forced you to rethink your communications strategy?More videos from WEF can be viewed here.

  1. To add to what John said, the power of Web 2.0 tools is really enabled by mass collaboration...and how effective we can draw upon the wisdom of the crowds to solve everyday problems such as accessibility of basic education to the masses, accessibility to information, the basic human need to reach out, communicate, share ideas and thoughts...To this end, I forsee Cisco playing a lead role in defining the next phase of the Web.
