Who is your Hidden Hockey Hero?

November 18, 2014

As Canadians, hockey is in our blood.

It’s a passion that brings us together like nothing else, and at Cisco we’re proud to offer the technologies that help Canadians balance their commitments from home, the office and at the rink.

That’s why today I’m proud to announce the launch of our Hockey’s Hidden Heroes contest, a call to Canadians across the country to tell us about their hidden hero. Whether it’s a coach who works long hours but always seems to be at the rink, or a parent who runs the team carpool and finds time to work from the stands, we want to hear your stories.

Tell us how your hero balances work and life and why they should be nominated for a chance to win weekly prizes and a grand prize of $20,0001 for their hockey club.

– Even if you’re not nominating anyone you can still get involved by voting for your favourite entries on our Facebook page

– Entries will be accepted until January 23, 2015. For full contest rules and regulations, go to

We launched this contest because we understand how valuable it is to be able to stay connected from anywhere, anytime, on any device. Today, tools like WebEx and cloud solutions give us the flexibility to manage our work-life balance like never before. Whether we’re cheering on our sons and daughters, driving to tournaments or warming up for an early morning practice, technology is giving us the freedom to access the office no matter where we are.

See how you can be at the rink and the office at the same time with these top tips on how to maintain your work-life balance.              

We also understand how the efforts of those remarkable coaches, volunteers, friends and family members who work so hard often go unnoticed. These hidden heroes dedicate themselves and their time to our national pastime, and we think it’s time to say thank you.

So c’mon Canada and tell us who your Hidden Hockey Hero is – your story of dedication, perseverance and love for the game could be worth $20,000 to your hockey club.
