Get Revved Up for Partner Velocity

- December 1, 2010 - 1 Comment

Barcelona is a great city—with its fantastic Basque food, gorgeous beachside location, and beautiful architecture courtesy of famed architect Antonio Gaudi, this Spanish city can’t be beat.

Next week, Barcelona will play host to partners from around the world who will be convening there to attend Partner Velocity, our annual event focused on giving our partners the insight, knowledge, and networking they need to accelerate their marketing.

This year, we’ll be providing our partners with access to the inside scoop on the latest social media and web 2.0 marketing trends. We’ll also have two sessions on marketing the cloud.

So who’s on tap to present?

Among the presenters: David Nour, Managing Partner of The Nour Group, who will lead a session on unleashing the power of social media to build, nurture, and leverage personal, functional, and strategic relationships.

Scott Klososky, a former CEO of three successful startup companies, will offer a straightforward overview of the cloud, its importance in business today, and how marketers can drive opportunities. (A full list of speakers can be found on the Partner Velocity site.)

I’ll also be interviewing Klososky and taking your questions in a live video broadcast on December 7 at 3:30 p.m. (15:30) Central European time.

And guess what? I’ll be presenting, too. (Oh man, I’d better start practicing my speech!) In my session–which runs at 11:45 a.m. CET on December 8–I’ll give a full demonstration on how to setup, market, and produce your own live video broadcast on Ustream from start to finish. The session will also take place on Ustream for the world to see.

Head over to the CiscoChannels Ustream page to reserve your spot for both live broadcasts. You can ask questions during the live events or post your questions here in the blog comments for either broadcast before they begin.

Select partners have been chosen to attend the event in person, but every session will be available as a video a couple weeks after the event on the Partner Velocity site.

We’ll also have videos and interviews with the speakers featured here on the Channels blog. So be sure to check back next week—we’ll have all the information you need to know from Partner Velocity right here.


In an effort to keep conversations fresh, Cisco Blogs closes comments after 60 days. Please visit the Cisco Blogs hub page for the latest content.
