This is the next blog in the continuing series of interviews with leading professionals. In this blog, I interview Anne Miller, the education marketing manager responsible for all educational programs at Cisco Systems Canada Co, and for the Networking Academy Program in Canada. Anne and I connected a few months ago and I was impressed with her passion for education and enabling success. As an additional note, Anne’s Networking Academy Program global manager, Amy Christen of Cisco, was selected for the global networking industry’s only Networking Professional Career Achievement Award at the Interop Conference in Vegas, May 2007. Anne’s work was instrumental in having this international recognition.
The interview has been broken up into topic sections below. I encourage you to share your thoughts here on these interviews or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
