Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind – December 6, 2013
Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco partner news and stories, as well as point you to important, Cisco-related partner content you may have missed along the way. Here’s what you might have missed this week:
Since the last Partner Weekly Rewind, I took a nice long weekend to enjoy the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. I hope that those of you here in the United States took the time to relax a little as well.
I was able to visit some family and enjoy what amounted to one long, continuous meal from about 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. last Thursday. Now that I am out of my food-induced stupor, it’s back to providing you an update on what you might have missed this week.
Off the Top
CRN held it’s Women of the Channel event where they honored 295 women in channels whose expertise and vision deserved recognition. Cisco is proud that seven women were honored from our company this year.
Wendy Bahr, Jeanne Beliveau-Dunn, Maria Cannon, Michelle Chiantera, Julie Hens, Jennifer Rillera, and Karen Walker were all honored this year. Please catch up on what they had to say to CRN and join us in congratulating them.
In addition, Wendy Bahr, Maria Cannon and Julie Hens were each included in this year’s “Power 100: The Most Powerful Women Of The Channel 2013.”
Again, congratulations to all the women honored at this year’s CRN event.
