When we announced the new Cisco Partner Program last October, I promised we would stay transparent with you as the program evolves. That’s especially important, since this is the biggest change to our programs in over a decade.

Now, I’m excited to announce that we’re starting a new broadcast series to keep you informed about the program, as well as other developments that support your Cisco practice. It’s called “Future Ready – Programs and Profitability,” and the first episode is this Wednesday.

Please join me for a brief update on the program and our incentives. Then I’ll have a discussion with Steve White, VP of Channels and Alliances for IDC, about changes our customers are experiencing in these unusual times and how it’s impacting you and other Cisco partners. We’ll look at some interesting IDC research about how IT markets are recovering around the world and what you can do to come out on top.

We’ll have Cisco staff online to asnwer your questions as we go, so be sure to join us…and let your colleagues know, too!

Register for the event:
