Did you miss it? The Weekly Rewind went on hiatus for a short time. It’s back. It’s better. It’s all about you. Here’s what’s new and different:

  • A look back at the stories you missed.
  • A look forward at what’s to come.

In this week’s edition we’ll take a look at the brand campaign, how your role is evolving, and customer success.

You’ll only see this here

The new Cisco brand campaign launched last week. This campaign is all about transformational, stunning stories that show how technology is changing the way we work, live, play, and learn. It’s the first time we’ve gone to market to, thru, about, and with you, our partners. And it’s the first time we’ve delivered a campaign through ENGAGE.
