She has responsibility for managing and supporting 55,000+ global partners who represent the company’s primary route to market.

Today’s businesses need solutions that combine capabilities from more than one company — which makes who you partner with more crucial than ever. Let us help you forge ecosystem partnerships that can add value to your business through networking tours. Tell our Cisco tour guide your partnership needs, and you’ll meet partners on the World of Solutions floor that best fit those needs in areas such as security, collaboration, cloud, data center, IoT, and industry focus.




We’ve distilled the most crucial messages and actions you can take for the most impact in multiple areas. Hear top strategies for building winning solutions, with suggestions on how to bridge the gaps between DevOps, NetOps, and developers through System Engineers. See demos and deep dives of our Enterprise Networking and Data Center/Hybrid Cloud portfolio, and get an inside look at our security vision and how Talos works — and much more.




Striking a balance between leadership vision and practical action, all of our sessions focus on enabling you and your company to lead more effectively. Hear the latest on our top portfolio and business strategies and see them in action. World of Solutions architecture tours led by Cisco experts will explain our technology vision and show how partners play a crucial role in making it a reality.
