This just in…

I’ve recently been informed of some big news regarding the speakers for the Big Idea Talks at Cisco Live this year!

Each year at Cisco Live events around the globe you get access to some of the greatest deep dive technical content there is in the networking industry. Deep dive technical education is great! The better you understand the technologies you’re working with the more value add you can bring to your team and company. It better prepares you for the obstacles you’ll face, and for certification exams.

The Big Idea Talks at Cisco Live aim to do just that by bringing in some of the biggest names in thought leadership – technologists, futurists, researchers, present day innovators, and many other thought provoking voices from across many different industries and walks of life.
