Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind – July 10, 2015
Each week, we’ll highlight the most important Cisco Partner Ecosystem 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:
Off the Top
By now I’m sure you’ve seen the news that Bruce Klein is leaving Cisco and his role as senior vice president of the Worldwide Partner Organization, and we are welcoming Wendy Bahr into the role, effective July 27. I hope you’ll join me in congratulating Wendy and thanking Bruce for his tremendous leadership during the past three years. We wish him all the best in his next adventure!
I have had the pleasure of working with both of these leaders here at Cisco, and while I’m certainly sad to see Bruce leave, I know Wendy will be a great leader for Cisco’s Partner Organization. She backed that up in an exclusive Q&A with CRN this week. If you want a glimpse at what’s at the top of Wendy’s mind as she takes over the Cisco Worldwide Partner Organization, be sure to read the CRN interview.
Boost your video sales with Cisco’s summer incentives
The show must go on of course, and Richard McLeod had a great blog earlier this week about how partners can boost sales with several incentives available to them right now. Richard touched on VIP, TMP and the Not for Resale program, and he pointed out specifically where video ties into those programs. Want some tips on maximizing your video sales for the next few weeks?
