The entire Cisco Support Community team wants to thank all the members who stopped by our booth at Cisco Live Orlando. The record turnout made the show that much more spectacular! For us, meeting our members at Cisco Live, gives us the ability to better understand your needs and how we can improve our community.


Our permanent residence for the next 7 days. The fortunate ones got to stay in the hotel right across the street from the convention center. This was the view from my room. I got to live, breathe, and sleep Cisco Live.


The CSC booth area. This year the World of Solutions never slowed down, even during sessions. Some attendees told me you can watch a recording of the sessions but there isn’t one for the WoS.

How many big screen TVs can you fit on one ceiling?


(below).. That is me talking with John Chambers at the World of Solutions (NOT ). John did walk the floor and stopped at many booths. I happened to snap this photo while going for a break.



For me, one of the highlights of Cisco Live is the Cisco Designated VIP dinner. This gives our VIPs an opportunity to connect with fellow VIPs as well as the Cisco team. Getting everyone together in one room is a blast. We truly appreciate the knowledge they bring to you on the CSC.

George Stefinick brought me a gift from his trip to Chile.

Someone is no doubt making the VIP class next year

The big customer appreciation event!

Who could resist going to Universal Studios when they close the park down just for Cisco Live attendees?!

Maybe next year, you'll be sure to go!


Look at the signage we had Universal put up just for the Cisco Designated VIPs


The band Journey played but as you can tell I didn’t exactly get too close. Cisco Designated VIP Jonathan Schulenberg even managed to answer a question with his mobile device while listening to the band play. Now that is dedication to CSC.




Hmmmmm….. The CSC team sure looks goofy!

Should we be embarrassed?

We hope everyone enjoyed Cisco Live Orlando as much as the Cisco Support Community team did!
