Reinventing the Partner Experience at Cisco Live
Vice President, Partner Organization, Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ)
Vision & Strategy, Thought Leadership
We’re a week away from Cisco Live Melbourne and this year we’ve taken the feedback from our partners and revamped the entire experience for Partners at Cisco Live. This year, we’ve integrated what used to be called Partner Connection into Cisco Live and we’re calling it PartnerXperience at Cisco Live.
We have reinvented the agenda so that partners no longer have to worry about missing the Cisco Live Keynotes and instead they will be able to experience some of what Cisco Live has to offer. From the World of Solutions, to the DevNet Zone and even some of the world famous coffee that Melbourne is famous for.
With an estimated 1,000 partners from across the region expected to attend, they’ll want to hear about how they can evolve their business with Cisco, following our innovation and programs announced at at Partner Summit in November.
In APJ, we have had a had a great first half of the year and this is largely thanks to our Partners, so in addition to giving them know about the business, we would also like to take this opportunity to thank them for thinking that Cisco is the trusted technology partner for their customers.
Joining me in Melbourne, is Wendy Bahr, Senior Vice President of Cisco's Global Partner Organization, Nirav Sheth, Vice President, Sales & Systems Engineering, Global Partner Organization, Denny Trevett, Vice President, Independent Software Vendors and Global Technology Partners who will be available to tell partners about opportunities on how to build their Cisco Business to support their customers’ digitization efforts.
Finally, Partners in Melbourne will also have the opportunity to explore ecosystem opportunities at Cisco Live’s World of Solutions and look at new ways of solutions selling. To quote poet Maya Angelou, “nothing will work unless you do” and this represents the value that Cisco and our Partners bring to our joint customers.
It’s going to be a jam-packed week, but on behalf of the leadership team in Cisco APJ, we’re looking to hosting our Partners and making the most out of our week in Melbourne.
See you next week!
