Today kicked off day one of the 2013 Cisco Partner Summit. This is the first time I've had the opportunity to attend and to be perfectly honest, I wasn't sure what I was in for. I've attended numerous partner virtual team events in the past and I’m no stranger to Cisco partner facing events, but this event in particular allowed me to be an audience member to the likes of John Chambers, Bruce Klein, and Edison Peres. I've said numerous times, listening to someone’s message in his or her own environment is the most compelling way to receive it, and I wasn't disappointed.
