Cisco Partner Weekly Rewind – March 21, 2014
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:
Well here we are. The last Partner Weekly Rewind before Cisco Partner Summit. I’ll be hopping on a plane to Vegas tomorrow and when I touchdown, I’ll be executing against all the planning that’s occurred for months now. I can’t wait to meet many of you this year, and don’t forget, if you are not going to be in Las Vegas this year, there is still time to get registered for Virtual Partner Summit (VPS).
Also, here’s one quick note about the Partner Weekly Rewind blog. Since Partner Summit is next week, there will not be a Partner Weekly Rewind blog on March 28 or on April 4. Instead, we will have Partner Summit content for next Friday and on April 4, we will wrap up our Partner Summit coverage with an overall recap blog. The regular Partner Weekly Rewind will return on April 11.

We are keeping things focused on Partner Summit this week, of course! I took the opportunity early in the week to bring you the thoughts of a few partners I spoke to in Los Angeles during XChange Solution Provider. We are almost ready to start this year’s event, but if you still have a moment to spare, check out what partners are looking forward to in Vegas next week!
Anna Sui also brought some advice on preparing for this year’s Partner Summit. Her checklist from yesterday gives you a glimpse into the activities for next week and gets you ready to participate in all that Partner Summit and VPS have to offer.
If you are in Las Vegas next week, let me know. I would love to meet you if possible. I know the schedules will be tight, but events like Partner Summit are as much about making personal connections as they are about the great content you’ll receive next week. I would love to have a chat and see what you are working on in the social media space. Let me know in the comments section below!
