Cisco in 2012: A small business TweetChat with Cisco’s Andrew Sage

February 13, 2012

TweetChat gives opportunity for Canadian SMBs and partners to ask questions to Cisco executive – now updated with Chat transcript

As director of SMB for Canada, part of my job is to listen to our small business partners and customers across the country. I’ve listened, and you’ve spoken volumes. You want to know what to expect from Cisco in 2012, and where we will be investing in the SMB space. You want to know what technology trends will dominate this year, and how you can take advantage of them. And partners, you want to know how to expand your SMB business, and what to expect at Partner Summit this April.

Andrew Sage, Cisco VP of Partner Led

It is with this in mind that I am delighted to announce that Andrew Sage, vice-president of Partner Led for Cisco, will be participating in a TweetChat on February 23 with @CiscoCanadaSB. Andrew, a fellow Canadian, will answer the above questions and more, and we want you to get involved!

What is a TweetChat?
TweetChats are online conversations held at a pre-arranged date/time between Twitter users. Chats are uniquely identified by pre-defined Twitter hashtag (such as #ciscosbchat) to identify the discussion thread. By including this hashtag in each tweet, the conversation can be monitored separate from the larger Twitter conversations.

I encourage all of our small and mid-sized business partners and customers across Canada to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to talk to one of Cisco’s SMB and Partner Organization leaders on February 23.
